Learn which oils are best for your skin. How they help keep it looking clear and youthful...
First we're gonna talk about the two categories of oils. Comedogenic and Non Comedogenic oils. Basically, it means oils that are less likely to clog your pores vs the ones to completely avoid placing on your face because they'll cause pore blockage and breakouts. Which is an absolute NO NO!
So, let's discuss comedogenic... By definition it means - "tending to clog pores and encourage the formation of blackheads." This means products made with these types of oils may not be the best when trying to rid yourself of acne, blackheads, or face breakouts. Although the oils that fall under this category are beneficial to our skin and hair. They are best suited for areas outside our face.
As you may have surmised, non comedogenic is the opposite of comedogenic. Its definition is - "not causing clogged pores or blackheads." These oils also have amazing properties and benefits, but won't contribute to clogged pores. They are good choices to gravitate towards when looking to moisturize and help fight aging and wrinkles on the face.
When it comes to the two categories of oils, they are broken down further to won't clog to most certainly will clog. Again, it doesn't mean the oils that will clog your pores are not good. However, they aren't the best when it comes to putting them on your face. So we're gonna explore the rating scale that the two categories spans across. It has a rating scale from 0 - 5 (see our table below).
