Prolonged Use Of Headphones Can Cause Blackheads In The Ear, Doctor Warns

You might limit your headphone use after watching this.

We’ve seen too many videos of blackhead popping all over the internet lately. Now, a doctor is warning that wearing headphones for prolonged periods may actually lead to the formation of blackheads in the ears.

While hormones and genetics are always blamed as culprits in the formation of blackheads and acne, everyday habits that could irritate the skin may play a huge role, too. Well, one habit that may take a toll on your skin is excessive use of gadgets, such as headphones.

Some people wear their headphones everywhere they go – the gym, at school, work, subway and during long drives.

Though listening to music helps you release the stress, which is good for the health, it might irritate the skin inside your ears.

Normally, blackheads develop on the face, particularly on the nose and chins. However, did you know that blackheads can also form inside the ears? It might sound gross, but one doctor said that using the headphones too much may contribute to this condition.

In one segment of “The Doctors”, the outer part of the ear contains many sebaceous glands as the noses and chins do.

These sebaceous glands are responsible for secreting oil, which can cause blackheads.

The good thing is, practicing good hygiene like cleaning the skin inside the outer ear is essential to make sure the pores are not clogged. Also, limiting the use of headphones can reduce skin irritation, especially when these headphones are not cleaned regularly.

Though it might be gross and intense to watch, this shows how neglecting the skin in the ears could affect the skin.

Remember, if you have a bad case of blackheads (even in other parts of your face), you should visit a doctor for further evaluation and treatment. Don’t go popping those blackheads by yourself to prevent infection.

Two Asian Students Spotted Romping In Broad Daylight Against A Wall On Campus

Just meters from them, there are people walking by and a golf cart passing by.

Sex on campus? Nothing new, definitely. But in public and in broad daylight? Even the bravest daredevils on campus will think twice about doing it. But for these two Asian students, the need to get it on is stronger than the fear of getting caught.

So someone at the University of New South Wales in Australia was able to capture the hot action between the two students, who were described as Chinese, from afar. They were positioned against a large concrete building in the university.
