But let me tell you first what EXACTLY is a blackheadAside from the noticeable rough texture of these irksome clusters, blackheads are actually results of clogged mixture dead skin cells and oil - among other things. Unlike whiteheads, blackheads are open on the skin's surface. When the pores are left open, it can give chance for this little plug of gunk to oxidize and turn black. Long story short, it is more irritating because it’s more noticeable in our skin.
