Oily skin and blackheads often go hand in hand and it’s definitely
not a union you want on your face. Do you suffer from both? We have
recommendations for how you can reduce the appearance of blackheads,
oily skin and enlarged pores are a thing of the past. Read on.
What causes oily skin and blackheads?
Oily skin is largely hereditary, but can also be caused by hormonal imbalances such as puberty or pregnancy.
According to the American Association of Dermatology, blackheads are
formed through oil, dead skin cells and bacteria that block pores and
cause small bumps called blackheads. If a blocked pore stays open, it
can look kind of black and is called a blackhead.
While you may have been born with acne- and blemish-prone skin that
doesn’t mean it’s not manageable/without help. With the right routine
you can curb oiliness and the blemishes that go with it.
