Blemished and combination skin usually tend to produce too much sebum. This means that the skin appears oily in at least some areas of your face, and quickly becomes shiny.
Even if you wouldn't expect it, the right plant oils are great at regulating sebum production.
Non-comedogenic oils are particularly good for blemished skin. Read this article about comedogenic oils to find out more.
What causes oily skin on the face?
Oily and shiny patches on your face occur when the skin's own sebum production gets out of balance. There are many possible causes for this: hormonal fluctuations, diet, puberty, environment, etc. The result is often blemishes and spots.
Drying out is not always the solution!
Have you ever tried to get rid of oily patches by letting the skin dry out or simply not taking care of it at all? Unfortunately, this can backfire! Sometimes, the reason for excess sebum production is that the skin was already dry before. Our skin always tries to regulate itself. In this case, less skincare would only result in the skin producing even more sebum, because it lacks a protective layer.
If we want to improve our skin it is important to pay attention to the cause of problems and observe changes.

Numerous natural antimicrobial ingredients in this facial oil act as a gentle disinfectant for inflamed skin. It has a regulating effect on metabolic processes and regenerates the skin barrier to give you a clear complexion in the long term.
It contains these fantastic plant oils that are particularly suitable for blemished skin:

A high content of linoleic acid benefits the sebaceous gland outlets, which leads to an improvement in acne.

Tocopherol (vitamin E) in argan oil protects against harmful environmental influences.
These properties make this facial oil the perfect cocktail for blemished & combination skin. Use every morning and evening - your skin has never been so good!
