Blackheads, sometimes also called “open comedowns”, our small dark spots on the skin. A white head, on the other hand, is a “closed comodo” blackheads are actually blocked pores that get filled with keratin, skin debris and sebum, which is an oily substance.
This is the first stage of pimples of acne. The blackhead can grow to become a pimple. Blackheads are not exactly a health hazard, but they are very frustrating as they come upon the most visible part of our body-the face often they are seen right on the nose. Naturally, it looks bad.
Why and how blackheads appear on your skin?
Hormones in your body can cause blackheads. Dihydrotestosterone or DHT is a hormone that triggers overactivity of the oil glands. And if your body is producing a lot of oil, then your skin pores are likely to get clogged.
Cosmetics and other can cause blackheads as well, particularly beyond the nose, face creams hydrate the skin but they can end up adding more pore-clogging oil.
Some medication is to be blamed as well for deep blackheads. Medicines that are rich in phenytoin, estrogen, testosterone, and steroids, can cause several skin problems including blackheads.
Stress is directly related to blackheads some people are convinced that it can cause blackheads too.
Alcohol and Caffeine.
Alcohol and caffeine could be bad for the health of your skin. Stimulants in your coffee can kick-start the oil glands of your skin.
Smoking could be one of the causes as well. Cigarette smoke is full of ash, tar, and many chemicals, that can damage the surface of the skin causing blocked pores and dead cells.
Sugary foods, fried foods, and those with a lot of carbohydrates can have a huge impact on your skin.
