While all pimples are pesky, blackheads are truly infuriating. Tiny, plentiful, and trapped inside the skin, those little black dots seem dang near impossible to remove.
So what are blackheads, exactly? Blackheads (also referred to as open comedones) are clogged pores or hair follicles that are filled with sebum (the natural oil that the glands on our face make), dirt, skin cells, and bacteria. Long story short, it’s another type of acne.
