Pore Clogging Ingredients

 

If you suffer from acne don’t put anything on your face or in your hair without checking the ingredient deck first, even if it says “non-comedogenic”  or “won’t clog pores” on the bottle.

There are many natural skin care products, organic skin care products, professional skin care products and even so called acne products and dermatologist approved insignia that have pore clogging ingredients and still claim their products can clear skin even though the ingredients prove differently.

Watch out for over the counter acne products and also oil free products many of these can contain pore clogging ingredients.

Even the ingredients that sound wonderful for your skin,  can be some of the worst culprits and offenders that will wreck havoc with acne prone skin. Coconut oil can be one of the worst for those with acne.

There are other natural oils that are mildly comedogenic, but mixed with other comedogenics  can again pose a problem.

Here is a pretty extensive ingredients list so you can check out your current skin care, makeup and hair products. If you are looking to clear up your skin and to stay clear this list will prove invaluable.

Go beyond the marketing hype and read the ingredients.
