Blackheads: What are they?

Blackheads, also known as "open comedones", occur as a result ofthe blockage of skin pores due to an excess of sebum and the accumulation of dead cells.

Blackheads can also appear on the shoulders, chest and back.

The hydrosol is applied daily to cleanse the face, thus helping to prevent the appearance of blackheads.
