What are black pores?

What are black pores?

Black heads: They are plugged pores and they appear black.
Blackheads are typically caused by the overproduction of oil, which tends to occur when a person reaches puberty.

Spikes in hormone production can result in the high levels of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a hormone which triggers overactivity in the oil glands, resulting in clogged pores.
