When anybody meets you then your face is your identity and hence everybody wants to look good as it is the first important appearance. When it comes to facial part then it is a thing to worry if you have blackheads over your face for most of the conscious people. Blackheads can be seen on most parts of the face but they seem to occur mostly on the nose areas of a person.

Black is black

Comedone is the medical name of blackheads. These are more often confused with white heads but they are different from them as whiteheads are present on oily as well as dry skins whereas blackheads are present over the oily skins only. As these blackheads are a result of accumulation of excess oils, they clone the pores which generally results in familiar bump. This pore is taken over by the bacteria due to clogging. The reason why a pore gets clogged is as follows:

  1. The most important reason of oil production is hormones. Androgen, the male hormone lead to an increment in the oil production from the skin. The excess production of this hormone can also lead to the formation of blackheads.
  2. Skin care products as well as make-up also lead to the skin pores to clog.
  3. Stress also plays a key role in the increment of oil production on one’s skin. This is also the reason to get pimples over your face.
