Many people are still not aware that some skin care products are not good for your skin. Many people also believe that they should use an oil free moisturizer. The real issue is that people should be using a non pore clogging moisturizer. Some oil should be avoided, but not all oils are bad for your skin.
Some of the best non pore clogging moisturizers contain natural oils that are very good for your skin. The important point to note is that you need to know which oils to avoid and which ones are ok.
You will see mineral oil in many skin care products. However, this oil should be avoided. Mineral oil will clog your pores. It will not be found in non pore clogging moisturizer products. If the pores are clogged then you could develop skin problems such as acne because the skin is unable to breathe properly.
The best advice I can give is to avoid anything product that contains mineral oil, it is also called paraffin wax, liquid paraffin and petrolatum. Cosmetic companies continue to use mineral oil because it is a very cheap additive.
A non pore clogging moisturizer can contain natural oils that have been proven to be good for your skin’s overall appearance and good health.
Briefly, I will go over some of the better natural oils you can use on your skin. You have probably heard of macadamia nuts, well macadamia oil is very good to your skin and does not clog your pores. This oil is easily absorbed into the skin and does not feel greasy. One of the main benefits of this oil is that it helps to protect the skin cells from aging prematurely.
An important oil that is considered a non pore clogging moisturizer is avocado oil. This oil is high in anti-oxidants that help to reverse the damage caused by free radicals. Other benefits of this oil are that it provides moisture to your skin.
Active Manuka honey is quite a different type of honey from New Zealand. It holds special healing properties for the skin and works effectively at restoring natural proteins the skin requires to maintain its texture and elasticity.
More natural oils and natural substances work to restore the luster to your skin. Stay away from mineral oils and stick to non pore clogging moisturizers. I have more information on natural skin care products and their ingredients on my website.
