What Are Blackheads

What-are-blackheads-1©-185x168[1]A blackhead, is a non-inflamed acne lesion where the pore remains open, also known as an “open comedone”. In the case of a blackhead, the tip of the plug darkens as it is exposed to oxygen in the environment. Contrary to popular belief, blackheads are not caused by dirt – it is a plug of dead skin cells and sebum that is discolored. When the end of the “plug” gets exposed to air, it oxidizes and turns the dark color; hence giving the blackhead its apt name.

You will need quite strong products but used in the correct way.  You will also need an acne specialist to coach you in how to use these products correctly. It is vitally important to follow instructions closely and consistently, as this type of acne can be the toughest to get under control.

What Are Whiteheads?

Whatarewhiteheads1-185x168[1]A whitehead is called a “closed comedone”.  It is basically a blackhead that has not “matured” into a blackhead yet, as the pore remains closed.  Because the pore is closed to air, it does not discolor like the blackhead does.
