Allure Magazine Feature on Comedonal Acne (Blackheads)
“Comedonal acne is formed when excessive sebum [the oil your skin produces to hydrate and protect] is combined with dead skin cells, bacteria, and dirt to clog pores,” says Michele Green, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. This was published today on Allure.com at “You’ve Probably Had Comedonal Acne — Here’s How to Make It Go Away” where she answers common questions about Comedonal Acne.
From info on what is Comedonal acne, to causes and how to treat open and closed Comedones, and the consensus overall, she explains how they work and key culprits. You might also know them by their more common name “blackheads.”

She also recommends her own MGSKINLAB’s Pore Minimizing Cleanser, which contains salicylic acid and glycolic acid.
