How To Fix Acne With Plant Oils
Did you know that acne is often caused by the very skincare products you are using right now?
Most traditional cleansers are designed to strip the skin of everything on it. Have you ever used a cleanser and then noticed how squeaky-clean and tight your skin feels? That's not a good thing!
Our skin has a very delicate balance of natural oils that it produces to keep itself happy and healthy. When you strip your skin of these it goes into overdrive trying to fix itself by producing too much oil, leading to clogged pores and therefore acne.
To make things worse traditional toners and moisturisers are packed full of man-made ingredients that are foreign to your skin. They are often included in skincare to make products feel, smell and look a certain way so you like using them, but actually they offer nothing to your skin. This causes redness, irritation and blemishes.
So what happens when you use plant oils instead?
Plant oils contain healing properties that kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation and help shed dead skin cells that clog pores creating pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. These beneficial properties are particularly present in Tamanu Oil and Jojoba Oil which can significantly calm and heal acne.
What's more is that pores get clogged when your skin doesn’t have enough Linoleic Acid. This fatty acid can be found in most plant oils so by consistently using oils you'll find skin gets everything it needs to be happy!
