We’ll an interesting point is that our skin is not flat we have some small pores on our skin which are u shaped. The pore size depends on your genetics. The people of darker complexion have a larger pore size as compared to the people with fairer complexion.
We can literally increase or decrease the pore size but we can shrink them. Dirt, oil and dead skin cells get accumulated and thereby they clog these pores and hence these are known as whiteheads.
Sometimes the upper layer of these pores gets open and when it comes in contact with air, it gets oxidized and thus blackheads are formed. If do not give proper attention and care to these pores then they may become acne or pimples.
