Whiteheads appear on your skin when blocked pores close up, creating small white bumps on the surface. They are not yet infected, and are neither swollen nor red.
Blackheads form when pores clogged with oil do not close up. When exposed to air, the blocked pore turns black, creating the tiny black dots you see on your skin.
Pimples appear when a clogged pore gets infected by bacteria, making skin inflamed, red and sore. They can form either on the surface or much deeper in your skin, and can sometimes be filled with pus.

Is your skin oily, dry, combination, sensitive or normal? Knowing the answer to this important question can help you pick the right products and cleansing routines, and take better care of your skin.
