What are blackheads and white heads? If you don’t know how they look, you need to stand in the light with a mirror and review your face, specially your nose area with intense attention. You will notice that there are tiny bits of black spots that have small hair tucked inside. Or there are some black marks that can be touched and felt by hand. These are called black heads. The white heads, on the other hand, are not much visible, they can be seen by a microscopic glass. Blackheads can appear on nose, on cheeks and even on your chin area if you don’t cleanse your face daily.
Here are some ways to get rid of black heads and white heads, you cannot remove them forever because they will come back every now and then, you just need to take them out of your skin to keep it clean for passage of oxygen.
I would like to mention that both black and white heads are formed into the skin when excess oil is produced by skin and clogs the pores when dust comes in touch with the skin or it occurs when you don’t cleanse your skin and dead skin keeps accumulating over the skin. The pores are clogged, particles embed inside them, thereby transforming your skin from supple to rough and dry.
There are many causes of comedones, few to name are stress, hormonal changes, uncleaned skin, oily skin, intake of coffee and tea. Don’t let skin debris and keratin to clog the pore.
You can remove blackheads and white heads naturally through natural ways and here are some.
