Blackheads are extremely annoying since their appearance is annoyingly noticeable and getting rid of blackheads through exfoliation is a tedious procedure. The underlying causes for the formation of blackheads may vary but blackheads are usually characterized by open skin pores filled with dirt, oil, grime and dust. This dirt is the accumulation of excess oil and dead skin skills which over a period of time oxidizes with air and turns to black colour. Blackheads can be removed by physical exfoliation but this alone doesn’t solve the problem. There may be many reasons for the formation of blackheads like oily skin, acne-affected skin, allergies from cosmetics, makeup or natural birthmarks are also areas where blackheads are usually formed.
