What are Blackheads?

Blackheads, also known as open comedowns are tiny, dark spots that appear on the surface of your skin. Blackheads are blocked pores (hair follicles) in the skin that are filled with skin debris or keratin and sebum, an oily substance. Blackheads occur mainly on the face and nose and are a common problem among adolescents especially those with oily skin. Blackheads can be called first stage acne, before bacteria enters the clogged pores.
