Q: Will using a facial oil clog my pores?
A: Using a facial oil when your skin is already oily or acne-prone can seem like a daunting idea. Often, those with oily or acne-prone skin opt for 'oil-free', mattifying formulas in a bid to reduce shine and prevent breakouts. However, research shows that our skin needs oil to protect the skin barrier and maintain balance, and stripping it's precious oil content can actually encourage our skin to over-produce sebum in a bid to keep skin protected, resulting in oilier skin and more congestion! By feeding our skin little and often with lightweight, non-comedogenic oils like those in Purity Facial Oil, we can help to restore moisture-loss, resulting in balanced skin that is clear, radiant and consistently less oily.
Q: What are non-comedogenic oils?
A: Non-comedogenic means 'non-pore blocking', and non-pore blocking means less likely to cause breakouts and congestion. Every breakout stems from a blocked pore, or a 'comedone', which can be caused by a number of reasons, including our skins natural oils, dead skin cells or the make-up and products we use. Our Purity Facial Oil blends breakout-fighting salicylic acid with non-comedogenic oils including hemp, squalane and sea buckthorn, helping to target acne and congestion at the source, while ensuring that the pores continue to stay clear.
Q: What ingredients fight breakouts?
A: Purity Facial Oil contains two key active ingredients to fight breakouts- Salicylic Acid and Bakuchiol. Derived from willow bark, salicylic acid is a powerful Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA)- an oil soluble ingredient that works to dissolve the skin debris that clogs pores, making it excellent at fighting both whiteheads and blackheads. What's more, it's anti-inflammatory properties help to speed up healing time and reduce redness.
Bakuchiol is commonly known as 'nature's retinol'. This plant-derived ingredient is a powerful antioxidant that has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it is a great for treating active breakouts as well as reducing the scarring and pigmentation that may be left behind. Bakuchiol can also help to smooth skin tone and texture and improve elasticity for clearer, more even skin.
Q: How do I use Purity Facial Oil in my daily routine?
A: Purity Facial Oil is best applied to clean, dry skin to allow the active ingredients to work effectively. To use as part of your daily routine, warm 2-3 drops of facial oil between your hands and apply to the skin, paying particular attention to areas of congestion. For dryer skin types, follow with your daily moisturiser.
Purity Facial Oil can also be applied directly to an active blemish or area of congestion as an on-the-spot treatment to fight the breakout, calm redness and reduce scarring.
Q: My skin isn't oily but I still suffer from breakouts- would Purity Facial Oil work for me?
A: Yes, absolutely! Breakouts can occur whatever your skin type for many reasons, including hormonal changes, menopause, medication or general stress. Purity Facial Oil is an excellent way to treat the breakouts and reduce redness and inflammation, without drying the skin. Simply apply 2-3 drops to clean, dry skin, and if necessary, follow with your daily moisturiser.
