Natural Tips for Blackhead Removal

Natural Tips for Blackhead RemovalWhat is a Blackhead?

Blackheads can be a recurring nuisance that cause pimples and acne. They are caused when natural oil from the skin called sebum collects and hardens inside of the pores. The oil clogs the pore, and mixes with the toxins trying to escape from your skin. The toxins and the oil combined create glue inside of your pore. This glue is hiding underneath a black oxidized tip that is exposed and pops out just above the surface of the skin. This black tip is known as a blackhead. If you have oily or combination skin, there is a good chance you are going to battle with blackheads.
