Which oils should be used for blemish-prone skin?

Pimples, blackheads, scars, inflammations... Each skin type can face various imperfections. The causes are diverse, which is why it can sometimes be difficult to precisely determine their origin. Imperfections mainly stem from excessive sebum production leading to pore blockage. Let's focus on the vegetable oils suitable for skin with imperfections.

Characteristics of blemished skin.

Skins prone to blemishes often have a tendency to be combination to oily. They are characterized by an overactivity of the sebaceous glands, which begin to produce sebum excessively, giving the face a shiny and glossy appearance. Faced with this imbalance, the pores dilate even more, allowing the sebum to accumulate. Indeed, the skin is not capable of absorbing beyond its needs. Thus, the excess sebum ends up clogging the pores, which leads to the appearance of blemishes such as pimples or blackheads.

However, combination to oily skin types are not the only ones that can be prone to blemishes. Dry skin, dehydrated skin, etc... can also be affected. Nevertheless, many other factors can also cause blemished skin: unbalanced diet, inappropriate beauty routine, comedogenic or overly abrasive, hormonal imbalances (puberty, menopause, change in contraception, menstrual cycle, etc...), smoking, alcohol, pollution, lack of sleep and other excesses... Therefore, it is fundamental to choose gentle, purifying and balancing care, adapted to one's skin problems, to regain a healthy epidermis.

The vegetable oils recommended for blemished skin.

To regain their balance, skin with blemishes requires gentleness. It is therefore appropriate to favor light, non-comedogenic vegetable oils that are penetrating, with healing, purifying, anti-bacterial, and regulating properties to treat this type of skin. The best vegetable oils for skin with blemishes are jojoba vegetable oils and hazelnut oils. They will notably regulate excess sebum, fight against blemishes, tighten pores, rebalance the skin, hydrate and nourish it:

The vegetable oil of hazelnut.

Thehazelnut vegetable oil serves as an ally for oily skin prone to imperfections. It notably performs hydrating, protective, purifying, softening, and nourishing actions. Rich in unsaturated fatty acids, hazelnut oil helps to rebalance the hydrolipidic film, tighten the pores to prevent infection, and regulate sebum secretion. This allows it to soften and protect the skin against external aggressions, as well as correct the harmful effects of excess sebum.

Containing phytosterols, thehazelnut oil also has a healing effect on the skin. Non-comedogenic and non-greasy, this oil penetrates quickly and easily into the epidermis thanks to linoleic acid, without leaving a greasy film. It is also suitable for mature skin due to its content of vitamins A and E. Indeed, it helps to delay the appearance of wrinkles. However, hazelnut oil is not recommended for people allergic to oilseeds.

Note : Our purifying botanical blend also contains hazelnut oil. This night serum helps to purify the skin through the sebum-regulating and anti-inflammatory actions of 7 botanical extracts.

The vegetable oil of jojoba.

Rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acid, jojoba oil has a composition very similar to sebum, which allows it to have a strong affinity with the skin. Indeed, it blends with the sebum to form a light film on the skin, thereby strengthening the hydrolipidic film. The skin is then protected from external aggressions and dehydration. This oil also has the ability to rebalance the sebaceous activity and the pH of the skin, and thus reduce the appearance of imperfections (pimples, blackheads, etc...).

Non-comedogenic, the oil penetrates deeply and quickly into the epidermis to regulate sebum production and aid in cellular regeneration, without clogging pores or leaving a greasy sensation after application. It also promotes better healing of the epidermis.
