Overview: Facial oil for the acne prone skin? Pumpkin seed oil is naturally high in linoleic acid, which has been shown to lack in acne patients. When our skin is deficient in linoleic acid, sebum becomes thick and sticky which clogs pores and creates acne. In addition, we over wash our skin and do not moisturize property, and that leads to it overcompensating by producing more oil. This facial oil is especially formulated to reverse this cycle and finds the balance it needs for clearer skin.
To use: apply up to a full pump of oil to cleansed and toned skin at night. Massage in and allow to absorb for a few minutes. For most people half a pump is enough. Store at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
Caution: it can be used during the day. Avoid sun exposure 1 hour after application.
Pumpkin seed oil: high in linoleic oils, pumpkin seed oil is a great choice for acne prone skin. Linoleic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid as well as an omega 6 fatty acid. Acne patients have also been shown to have low levels of linoleic acid in their skin surface lipids. When our skin is deficient in linoleic acid, our skin’s natural sebum becomes thick and sticky which clogs pores and creates acne.
Jojoba oil: retains moisture, soothes irritated skin and treats acne.
