This type of acne forms through a combination of dead skin cells, bacteria and oil that’s trapped inside your pores. They appear yellow or white looking and are filled with a liquidly consistency.


Blackheads appear on your skin like small bumps because of hair follicles being clogged inside your pores. These bumps are called blackheads because the surface looks dark or black.

Causes of Whiteheads & Blackheads

Whiteheads develop when dead skin cells, sebum and dirt clog inside your pores. Blackheads are formed when the opening of hair follicles become plugged or clogged.

They can develop anywhere on your body. The nose, chin and forehead are collectively known as the T-zone that are particularly oily parts of your face that are prone to acne. The good news is that they can be prevented with a combination of lifestyle changes and medical treatments.

Some causes may be:

  • Changes in hormones (Puberty, menstruation, pregnancy)  
  • Medication  
  • Genetics  
  • Constant friction
