Most of us have known the annoyance of blackheads. Blackheads occur when sebum (a substance naturally produced by the skin) forms a plug in your pores and oxidizes. It's not a case of having a poor cleansing routine, as the cause of blackheads happens even below the skin. Unfortunately, you can't shrink the size of your pores by removing blackheads, we're afraid that everyone has different sized pores and some just happen to be bigger than others.
