BLACK/WHITEHEADS

A blackhead (medically known as an open comedo) is a yellow or blackish bump or plug on the skin. Blackheads are caused by excess oils that have accumulated in the sebaceous gland’s duct. The substance found in these bumps mostly consists of keratin and oil, which darkens as it oxidizes. Clogged hair follicles, where blackheads often occur, reflect light irregularly to produce a blackhead’s “black” hue. For this reason, the blockage might not necessarily look black when extracted from the pore, but may have a more yellow-brown colour as a result of its melanin content. In contrast, a “whitehead” (more commonly known as a pimple or a closed comedo) is a follicle that is filled with the same material, sebum, but lacks a small opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.Source : Medicine.net Our Beauty Consultant says Avoid squeezing out your own blackheads and whiteheads or it will damage your skin and cause permanent pore size increase.
