A blemish is an irregularity on the skin either in texture or colour. Blackheads are a type of acne that appear due to clogged hair follicles. These bumps are called blackheads because of their dark appearance, where the pores become blocked with excess oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells.

In order to most effectively treat and learn how to get rid of blackheads, it may be beneficial to find out what kind of skin type you have, but also to learn about proper sun safety.
