About Clogged Pores
Clogged pores are more commonly found on the surface, especially the T-zone area. Dead skin cells and dirt trapped at the opening cause the pores to be clogged. Overproduction of sebum that cannot exit through the opening can also cause pores to be clogged. When left untreated, it can lead to whiteheads, blackheads and acne.

Whiteheads are closed comedones clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. When air cannot reach the follicles, the materials are not oxidized and remain white in color. Blackheads are open comedones filled with the same materials. When the sebum comes into contact with the oxygen, it oxidizes and turns black.
