blackheads form when clogged pores are expose to air

Avoiding close-ups because of those annoying blackheads? Find out what’s going on so you can reclaim the spotlight!

What are they?

Blackheads are small black dots that appear on your skin.


What’s going on?

Like spots, blackheads can show up when excess oil on your skin blocks pores. When the oil and dead skin cells are exposed to air, they turn black.

Is it okay to squeeze out my blackheads?

It’s tempting, but resist the urge! Squeezing out blackheads might actually make more of them, because your hands carry more germs and oil that can clog pores.

How can I avoid getting blackheads?

By keeping your face free from germs and excess oil. Exfoliate regularly, use only oil-free skincare and beauty products, and wash your face with a good cleanser.

Which face wash should I use?

A face wash with salicylic acid gets rid of the excess oil on your skin, keeping those unwelcome blackheads away. CLEAN & CLEAR® BLACKHEAD CLEARING Daily Scrub works like a charm in banishing pesky blackheads.
