Subsequently, you should treat your blackhead and remove them instantly because, in the long run, they may cause a blackhead to develop into painful acne.

What do we mean by blackheads?
In each of our follicles, there is one sebaceous gland and one hair present which produces the oil. The main purpose of sebaceous glands is to produce the oil to keep your skin soft. The dead skin cells and oils are accumulated in the opening of the skin follicle then it causes a bump to form.
That bump is called whitehead if the skin remains closed over the bump. And when the skin is opened then it is exposed to air thus causing the whitehead to look black. Thus the blackheads are formed which are difficult to remove.
