Towards the end of college to now, I went from normal/oily T-zone skin to acne prone skin and had to completely change my skincare products to suit my new skin type. A few months ago, I got so desperate that I added the very well-known Pro-activ 3 steps system into my skincare routine. I got to say it does work (although it also dried out my skin)!
Due to my blemished face I have to look out for products that does not aggravate it more. I have to pay attention to the labels and look for oil-free and non comedogenic (non pore clogging) products . As I was doing research about clogged pores, I came across a list of pore clogging ingredients. I think it is great to have a list to refer to when reading a product’s ingredients (if they are provided). It is to be known, however, that even the most natural products or products that claimed to be non comedogenic can still somehow contained pore clogging ingredients. To read more about that and what pore clogging ingredients are out there you can visit here.
Sometimes it is impossible to avoid all of these ingredients (as some manufacturers do not disclose all their ingredients) but it still nice to know what you can avoid. Sigh…when it comes to skincare it is always a case of trial and error before you can find something that works.
