Using oils in your skincare routine is something that has not only gained massive popularity over the past few years, but it’s also a game changer. Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, it honestly works wonders to seal in moisture and target specific skincare concerns.
Thanks to this, skincare companies are charging a lot of consumers for their special oil blends, so people are DIY-ing it to save money. DIY is great but you need to know that not all oils are good for the face, some clog your pores.
It’s best to look for oils and products that have a low score on the comedogenic scale. This rating determines whether the oil will clog your pores due various different properties (science is great).
“Noncomedogenic oils help keep dry skin supple and oily skin acne-free. That’s because noncomedogenic oils don’t clog pores. This allows skin to breathe, remain hydrated, and keeps it free from breakouts”
So here’s a list of oils that you should stay away from!
- Coconut Oil
- Shea Butter
- Sesame Oil
- Coconut Butter
- Wheat Germ Oil
Before you start crying about the fact that coconut oil is on the list, it’s important to remember that this beloved oil has a time and a place. That place is not your face!
