Blackheads give unhealthy look of your skin. They most often appear on the face, back and ears because these locations include many sweat glands.
Blackheads are caused by poor diet, oily skin, clogged glands or pores, and oily hair.
When your pores become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells, blackheads are formed. The difference between a blackhead and a whitehead is in the fact whether the pore is open or closed. When the pore is open, the excess of sebum or skin cells oxidizes and oxygen turns into black.
Also, blackheads are not caused by dirt. So, scrubbing the face like crazy is not the best option to eliminate the boring blackheads. Moreover, this can make it worse because your skin will get dry, causing creation of more oil in order to make up for everything that was removed.
