Whiteheads and blackheads

Whiteheads are clogged hair follicles that contain oil (sebum) and look white.

Blackheads are clogged hair follicles that contain both oil (sebum) and tightly packed skin cells. Although blackheads look black, they do not contain dirt.

Do not squeeze whiteheads or blackheads. Doing so can lead to infections, worse acne, and scars.
