Blackheads and whiteheads Home Remedies

What causes blackheads and whiteheads

The sebaceous glands, our skin’s self-moisturizing mechanism, secrete oils called sebum, which are stored in the follicle. When the follicle is full, the oil is spilled off to the skin to keep the skin healthy and moisturized. But sometimes, the oil is trapped inside the hair follicle instead of flowing on to the skin. When it happens, bacteria develop in the follicle which causes pimples. Sometimes, though, instead of being infected, the follicle just gets all clogged up and forms comedones – those we call blackheads and whiteheads.
