Blackheads

Blackheads

What are blackheads?
Why do I get blackheads?
How can I get rid of blackheads?

Put simply, blackheads are a type of spot that forms on the skin. These small bumps often appear dark (hence the name Blackheads) or yellowish in colour.

Contrary to popular belief they are not black because the pores are filled with dirt. Instead, they appear in this colour because the inner follicle produces pigmentation.

There are several reasons why you may get Blackheads.

These include:

  • Not cleaning your skin regularly
  • Hormonal changes
  • Oily cosmetics
  • Your environment
  • Over-cleaning the skin (encouraging the skin to produce more oil)​

​​​
It would be difficult to find a person who has not suffered from blackheads at some point in their life, and this type of spot is completely normal.

No matter what you do, there is always a chance that blackheads might appear, but you can reduce their likelihood by using Chic’s specialist treatments.
