Before you jump into the wagon of trying to know how to get rid of whiteheads, get to know first what exactly is whiteheads & why are they appearing on your skin?

Dead skin cells + sebum (oil) + dirt + possibly bacteria as well = Whiteheads
A combination of these 4 and your skin will be forming this thing called whiteheads. You either get to see it visibly on your skin (in the form of tiny micro bumps & when you run your fingers on your skin, you’ll get to feel it) or you will only get to see it once you squeeze-pinch your skin between your fingers (and gooey white thing comes out of your skin). By now, you have probably seen it all through countless YouTube videos on squeezing & popping up whiteheads.
The question is, is this a problem?
Yes, if your whiteheads lead to acne-your skin breaking out.

There are 3 deep cleansing methods on which you can try either one or all of them (depending on your free time. However, they say in order to achieve great healthy skin, you shouldn’t be lazy!).
