Our expert says:
Whiteheads are skin pores blocked by sebum (skin oil) If they are open to air a chemical reaction with oxygen causes blackheads, if closed up, it becomes white heads. Never squeeze them, rather see a beautician to show you how to remove them with a comedone remover. You can also use something to reduce sebum production like oxy 10 or Benzac jel.
