Like blackheads, these are caused by accumulation of hardened sebum or oils, in the pores of the skin. The difference is that in areas where the skin is fine and delicate, the clogged grease is not exposed to air. Oxidization does not take place and does not darken the tips as on case of blackheads. The white heads appear in the form of tiny, pearly, white raised spots. They are common on the area just above the cheekbone, nose, or where the skin is fine. On oily skins, they may appear as a part of a “problem skin condition”, with blackheads, pimples and acne.

Deep pore cleansing with beauty grains helps to discourage them. The mixture of beauty grains and skin tonic is rubbed gently on the affected areas, before being rinsed off with water. The gentle dermabrasive action discourages their formation and also helps to dislodge them after a period of time.

White heads should never be removed forcibly, even with a blackhead extractor. In case of white heads, or milia, as they are called, the pore is not open. Forcible removal will only damage skin tissue and cause infection. With external care, you should include adequate amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Drink plenty of water and fresh fruit juices. A glass of warm water with the juice of lemon, helps to cleanse the body of toxic residues and improve the elimination of waste.
