So how does acne turn into blackheads?

You know those tiny black spots on your nose, face, back and shoulders? They look smaller than freckles. Your skin doctor calls them open comedones (come-uh-donies). We know them as “blackheads”. While acne is usually red, this form turns black and is rough to the touch.

Your skin has pores. These pores serve as an escape for sweat, as well as an oily substance called sebum (see-bum). Sebum keeps your skin soft and moisturized. Large pores, which clog due to sebum, cause acne.

The pigment that gives color to your skin is called melanin. If melanin gets oxidized, the clogged pores turn black. This is how a blackhead is formed.
