Aren’t white heads very annoying to look at? But they are far more tolerable compared to blacks heads. Still, it hasn’t changed the fact that it has made quite an annoyance in your life. You may not be aware, but whiteheads are considered another shape of acne. Most whiteheads are seen on the face, particularly around the chin and the nose. Just like blackheads, whiteheads are formed due to pores being clogged by bacteria, oil and dirt. It is also obvious what makes whiteheads different from blackheads – by its color. Aside from that, the reason why whiteheads remained white is because they are formed underneath the outer layer of the skin. This means that they don’t get oxidized, unlike blackheads.
What causes whiteheads? Mostly with hormonal changes. Others include the use of skin products that can actually harm your skin instead of revitalizing it, over production of oil on the skin, dead skin and bacteria.
