Beauty Myth of the Day

Scandle Candle's Beauty Myth Countdown.

Myth #15:

Blackheads are caused by improperly cleansed skin.


Blackheads are caused by clogged pores not dirty pores. Excessive or harsh scrubbing can irritate the already sensitive skin around blackheads, causing even more inflammation of the skin.

Blackheads are often caused by the buildup of dirt, oil, and dry and dead skin cells. All of which need to be removed, not scrubbed away. The best products for the treatment of blackheads are ones that dissolves sebum, the oily build up that causes most blackheads.
