Can acne prone skin use face oils?

YES! Here's why:

For many people, acne is caused by excess sebum production (a greasy, oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands) in your skin. Although it's necessary for healthy skin, pimples are caused when this excess oil and dead skin cells clog your pores. This results in blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, and pimples.

This imbalance can be the result of hormones or genetics!

Hydration v. Moisturization

The purpose of hydration is to find and pull water into your skin, whereas moisturization is done to prevent that water from leaving your skin.

Although your skin is producing excess sebum, it doesn't mean your skin is hydrated. Over production of sebum is the result of DRY SKIN! Face oils help to regulate sebum production because it mimics our skin's natural oil production (which results in less sebum!) and brings moisture and nutrients into your skin.

Solution: Non-Comedogenic Face Oils

The term non-comedogenic refers to an oil that does not clog pores. As they are lighter on the skin, non-comedogenic oils for the face can have amazing results on all skin types.

Ex: Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil, Sunflower Oil, and Argan Oil

Avoid: Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter on your face!

Where can I find these?

These are the ingredients present in both our Essential Face Oil ($30+) and Brightening Serum ($30+). They are good for all skin types but made specifically for acne prone skin.
