Hallo Asti
Blackheads are caused by increased sebum (oil) production. The oil reacts with oxygen in the air and colours black. Try washing with a good cleanser, you may need to see your doctor for anti acne medication too. Beauty salons can remove the current blackheads for you. Please don't squeeze them out as you will injure your skin and cause infection
