The Facts on Acne!

Oil is Great for ALL Skin Types? WHAT???

As reported by Lauren of Naked Truth Beauty, "fatty acids are basic building blocks of all oils (including sebum - the naturally occurring oil of our skin), and linoleic and oleic acids are two important ones to consider when talking about skincare.

Studies have found that individuals with acne-prone skin generally have lower levels of linoleic versus oleic acid in their sebum, and that topical application of linoleic acids can help to manage acne. As a result, oils with higher percentages of linoleic acid are excellent options for those battling acne."

So that means all of you teens and beauties out there with mild or simply annoying acne.....stop drying it out with benzoyl peroxide and other over the counter products that burn or dry the heck out of your skin! You should simply be keeping it clean by cleansing with a pure and botanical cleanser, exfoliant and toner. Follow by simply applying a small amount of Hemp or Rose Hip Oil. That's it! Be sure to know what to look for when trying different oils.

The article by Lauren sums up some great and helpful information, so there's no need for me to type it all up here. However, you need to know more about your own skin as everyone's skin is very different. So make an appointment with me and we'll begin the journey together. Pure premium oils available for purchase at JPB.
