What causes blackheads?

Blackheads occur when the factors previously mentioned sit at the pores' surface opening, then oxidise with the air and then turn into blackheads that are black or grey. Some of the causes are hormones that increase sebum or oil production, genetics, wearing tight clothing, hats, face coverings, thick and oil-based type creams, all of which can lead to clogged pores.

  1. Salicylic acid
