Information on Blackheads
Blackheads are tiny black spots on the skin triggered by plugs of sebum and sloughed off cells in the skin pore openings. Blackheads usually appear on the face but they can also appear on the other parts of the body as well. The treatment for blackheads requires a facial scrub two times per day. One can also see the first results after a few months.

It is very simple and it can be used by anyone, at their own homes.
Causes of Blackheads
When the skin produces excessive amounts of oil it leads to the formation of blackheads. Puberty is a period in every person’s life where the skin produces too much oil and inevitable causes the appearance of blackheads. A byproduct known by the name of dihydrotestosterone disturbs the balance of the hormones and the oil glands become overactive so they produce too much oil. The oil clogs the skin pores and it causes the development of blackheads.
Dead skin cells can also sometimes get accumulated in the skin pores. It also may lead to clogging of the pores and the buildup of oil. It is another situation which may lead to the development of blackheads. The development of blackheads can also be associated with excessive amounts of makeup, foundations, sun screens, moisturizes and all similar skin care and other products.
Whatever product or makeup a person puts on the face during daytime should always be removed before bedtime because the skin needs to be perfectly clean. It is also important not to cleanse or scrub the skin too much as it may lead to irritation and certain types of skin anomalies. Skin still needs small amounts of oil in order to maintain its proper health.
