Information about Whiteheads

What are Whiteheads and how do they occur?

Occurrence of whiteheads is a common problem, which starts in puberty and may extend well into thirties also. Presence of whiteheads makes the skin ugly and unpleasant. Whiteheads developed due excessive sebum activity. When excess of sebum gets accumulated in skin pores around hair follicle and in combination with keratin, it plugs the skin pores. It looks like a raised white bump on the upper layer of the skin. Whiteheads do not appear black as blackheads because pores are not open and grease is not exposed to air for oxidation to take place. It keeps the area white and this is why the term whitehead is given.

Whiteheads are undesired because they spoil the texture of your skin and if not treated on time, they can penetrate deep into the skin and create problems. The most affected areas of our face are sides of nose, forehead, cheekbones and temples. They may also appear under the eyes. If you want blemish-free, clear and lustrous skin, you should get rid of whiteheads and prevent their formation by taking proper measures. People who have oily skin should essentially follow a skin care routine to prevent formation of whiteheads.
