Whiteheads: do not squeeze
Whiteheads are the collection of sebum
and keratin that plugs the opening of
skin pore. They are caused because of
excessive secretion of sebum oil. Their tips does not get blackened because the
clogged grease is not exposed to the air and oxidation does not take place.
These appear in the area where the skin is delicate and fine. They are common
eyes, on the nose, cheekbone,
All such things as black heads and white heads spoil the texture of your skin
by showing it non smooth and lustrous. You need to look after the skin to

Microcomedos are almost too small to be seen, but you can feel them as roughness

that it is nearly invisible, so no contents can be extruded. True cysts are
nodules that rest deep below the surface, so you canít get to them by squeezing.
Any attempt to manipulate them will just aggravate the inflammatory process. If
youíve got cysts, the only effective therapy comes in a pill form, usually
How to remove whiteheads:

prevents the spread of bacteria that cause bad skin and helps you resist the
temptation to squeeze, which causes scarring.
