We've all been there and dealt with those pesky breakouts or acne, right? Most of us have also heard that oily skin is the most common culprit. This is a shocker but in reality, your natural composition combined with oil-based products can be your skin's best advocate. Stay with me here. You can take charge of your skin’s health and appearance with a few simple tips.
What Causes Breakouts?
Breakouts are caused by skin congestion, which is the result of excess oil clogging your pores. What you may not have know is that if you over dry your skin to reduce the oiliness, your body can overcompensate by producing even more oil. This can end up leading to more clogged pores and skin congestion, which in turn leads to breakouts. Long story short, that squeaky clean feeling after washing your face could be working against you.
What Products to Look For
When looking for skin care products, choose the ones that closely match your skin's composition. Those skin care products are going to have the biggest payoff. Oil-based products are some of the best to keep your skin nourished and hydrated precisely because certain botanical combinations resemble your skin’s sebum, they’re readily accepted by a variety of skin types and help the skin to self-regulate. Always be on the lookout for harsh chemicals that may be lurking in the ingredient list. Look for products that use organic, botanical ingredients.
