When it comes to acne, oil has gotten a pretty bad name. While it’s true that excess sebum (the oil your skin produces naturally) can clog pores and cause breakouts, that’s totally different than the oils you apply to your skin. In fact, natural oils can actually help your skin produce less pore-clogging sebum. The natural oils in Pälish face oils contain effective properties that can kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, and help shed dead skin cells that can clog pores and create more pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
Basically, everything you’ve been told about how acne prone skin requires products that produce a desert-like environment is a total lie. Starve your skin of oils and it will rebel by producing even more sebum— and all of that excess oil will linger on your now shiny skin, sink into pores, and return the favor with more acne.
Rather than drying out your skin, a much more effective acne-fighting solution involves incorporating oils like jojoba, argan and olive into your skincare routine, applying them directly to skin after cleansing and toning, and relying on them to provide non-greasy hydration and other benefits.
