Argan oil for ACNE
Acne products tend to dry skin causing it to produce more oil, aka sebum, to compensate for its lack of moisture. Excess oil and dead skin cells block pores causing skin inflammation and pimples.
Argan oil restores skin’s moisture reducing its need to produce excess oil.
Due to its high contents of anti–inflammatory components such as anti-oxidants and vitamin E, Argan oil soothes inflammation and blemishes naturally.
Argan oil has helped heal acne completely in many individuals. Others have enjoyed significant reduction of blemishes, flakiness and pimples.
To achieve desired results, please follow these steps:
- Do not over-wash your face, although it is tempting. Over- washing may irritate your skin and dry it out, causing it to produce more oil
- Exfoliate 3 times a week to work away dead skin particles and excess sebum. Opt for a gentle exfoliator without large granules to avoid further irritation of inflamed skin
- Moisturize your skin thoroughly with Argan oil while still damp
Please note: It is important to purify pores and prepare your skin to receive full benefits of Argan oil prior to applying it. Argan oil will absorb more intensely if blocking impurities are removed.
Will Argan oil cause acne breakouts?
While Argan oil might not heal acne in some individuals, it should not cause new breakouts or exacerbate existing ones.
The most common reasons for breakouts are:
- Severe nut allergies. We recommend conducting a skin patch test prior to use
- Poor quality, diluted, infected with bacteria, or rancid Argan oil
Please note: many individuals with nut allergies are using Argan oil successfully. Nut allergies do not necessarily cause breakouts from Argan oil. So it is worth conducting a skin patch test to see.
Please remember: Argan oil is versatile. If it is not a fit for your face, you can use it on your hair, hands, body, and feet.
