First things first, we’re not filthy, disgusting humans if we have blackheads. We’re simply human, and for that, we try not to fault ourselves too much. Blackheads are the result of a pore that has filled with oil and dead skin cells. Once filled, the pore dilates slightly, and the mixture oxidizes, causing it to take on that darker color that makes us feel like we have literal dirt in our pores.
But before you go ham with your fingers and whatever arsenal of popping utensils you have, go softly, friends. Blackheads will come and go (sometimes it feels like they’ll never stop coming) so don’t attack your face until every pore has been ravaged. Take a calculated approach, and assess the situation.
