Common and annoying, blackheads occur when your pores become clogged with excess sebum (an oil created by the sebaceous glands that keep skin supple) and dead skin cells. The difference between a black head and a white head is simply whether or not the pore is open or closed. If the pore is open, the plug of sebum/skin cells oxidizes as it is in contact with the oxygen in the air, which turns it black. Enn’s Closet has brought for you the best homemade remedies for blackhead removal. But for quicker results, don’t use some of these remedies more than 2-3 times a week. We know it can be hard to resist, but your skin will be better off this way.
