What Are Whiteheads?

We've all seen them and have all wanted to get rid of them. Those tiny white bumps on your skin we call whiteheads.  You have to get real close to even see them and they are simply blocked pores which have not developed further into zits. Dermatologists still can’t explain why some blocked pores just sit there while others quickly turn into monster zits which spoil your day. Some people don’t get whiteheads at all, while others do. Dead cells of the whitehead are not hardened like blackheads, and are practically invisible. If you regularly use a medicated face wash like Clearasil®, you are unlikely to get these, and regular scrub washes will also help prevent them.
