Bri Blackhead, is the most common and recognizable player you will see.

  1. Do you have bumps containing a black substance?
  2. They might be spread all over your face and on your nose?

Blackheads are a form of non-inflammatory acne, which means they are not typically red, swollen, or painful.

Blackheads are formed when hair follicles become clogged with a combination of dead skin cells, excess oil (sebum), and sometimes bacteria. The dark color of a blackhead is not due to dirt but is a result of the melanin pigment in the skin and the oxidation of the oil within the follicle. When the pore remains open, the contents become exposed to the air and turn dark, creating the characteristic appearance of a blackhead.
