What causes blackheads?
It occurs when pores get clogged with oil, impurities and dead skin cells, leading to unsightly bumps to be formed on the skin, especially on the bridge of your nose. And on the contrary to what you may have believed, only difference between a whitehead and blackhead is whether or not pores are open or closed.
Blackheads occur when the oil in the pores comes in contact with oxygen, which then gets oxidized, turning black in colour. And even though scrubbing might seem like the only plausible option to get rid of deeply embedded blackheads, it actually does more damage to your skin than any good!
Firstly, it strips your skin of its natural oil. And your skin goes in an overdrive of oil production to make up for the lost oil. And so, the viscous cycle continues.
Furthermore, if your skin is sensitive, scrubbing can inflame your skin! To counteract it all, we have got herbal remedies that are skin safe and are perfectly balanced!
