Blackheads are small bumps that are seen on the chin area. Blackheads are a start of getting pimples on your face. The typical cause of black heads is over production of oil in the body.

Sebum does the job of lubricating the hair and skin and is drained out of the skin pores. At times the sebum blocks the skin pores and bacteria gets accumulated. If the bacteria and sebum have no opening to the skin surface then it results in the formation of a white head. .Sebum has the presence of melanin in it. It is the same substance that gives skin its color. The reason behind the blackheads to be dark in color is the presence of the pigment melanin in sebum. Their dark color does not mean that they are dirty.
