Common and annoying, blackheads occur when pores become clogged with excess oil and dead skin cells. Other factors involved in the formation of blackheads include cosmetics, cleansers and clothing that block pores. Blackheads are open to the air, and the oil becomes oxidized, whereas whiteheads are not open to the air. Blackheads can impact the quality of life of sufferers by effecting self-esteem, body image and relationships.

Need help with blackheads? Rodan + Fields can help, with two simple steps: 1 – Gently massage ENHANCEMENTS micro-dermabrasion paste on area and rinse, 2 – Use UNBLEMISH Step 1 as a mask for 10 minutes, then rinse. Scrubbing obsessively is not a good way to get rid of blackheads, and could make the condition worse. Therefore, limit your treatments to 2-3 times a week.
