Blackheads is a very common problem among men & women. Basically blackheads are formed due to the pores getting clogged with dead skin cells and excess of sebum. Sebum is an oil that is created by sebaceous glands and keeps skin supple. There is another thing that we call white heads, the only difference between white heads and black heads is either the pore is open or closed. If the pore is open it is white head, but when in contact with oxygen in air, the plug of sebum oxidizes that turns it into a blackhead. Some people think that blackheads are caused by dirt, so they keep on scrubbing their skin.
