According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), blackheads occur when debris, such as excess oil and dead skin cells clog the pores and the pores remain open. How do you get rid of them safely? Here are some expert-approved tips.
Improper extraction may result in worsening of your blemishes:
