Nothing very glamorous today with this question but I found it interesting to deal with this subject by explaining the formation of this energetic and by giving you some recommendations. Continue reading our blog to understand What is a Blackhead?.

Firstly, Very clearly blackheads are born due to the obstruction of the pores. That is to say, too much secretion of sebum that generates a dilation of the sebaceous gland (responsible for the production of sebum). Which then clogs the canal leading to Sebum on the surface of the skin. The pores are then dilated, as were “pushed” by the heap of sebum. It is then that a short time comes the black points also called Blackhead.

6. Proceed once a week to a steam bath also known as facial sauna to plants or essential oils in order to deeply clean the skin, dilate the pores and facilitate the extraction of those with a Comedo Extractor.
