Home Remedies for Blackheads

Blackheads are very common in young people and can appear at any part of the body such as on the back, chest and other areas that are rich in sebaceous glands. They are caused by excess of sebaceous glands (the oil producing glands of the skin). The excess secretion of oil expands and thickens the pores of the skin. The oil collects in the pores and develops into a cyst or swelling. The pores are then blocked with hardened sebum or oil. Since the pores are open, the tip of the blocked grease is exposed to the air and oxidizes, turning black. Hence, blackheads are formed.

When a pore is fully blocked, the oil gland can get infected resulting into a pimple. Therefore, the control of blackheads is one way of preventing acne. However, taking regular care of the skin can prevent them.
