Our expert says:
Blackheads are formed when the pores (openings in the skin) get blocked by excessive sebum (this is a fatty substance secreted by the skin). Excess sebum production is caused by hormonal changes and is not linked to any dietary factors. If you have not yet seen a Dermatologist, please consult one ASAP before you damage your skin and develop scarring.
