White heads are common to teenagers and young adults and to those who are suffering from hormonal imbalance but white heads are generally present for both men and women. White heads are formed when dead cell fragments combined with sebum (oily substance created by the sebaceous glands)  and bacteria, leading to an oily substance that will clog pores and plug hair follicles. White heads occur in different parts of the face around our eyes, on the cheeks and nose. Here are some home remedies to help you get rid of those white heads:
