So many people are breaking out right now.  Combine the “maskne” from the friction and moisture rubbing against our skin with the chronic stress many of us are experiencing, and blemishes are popping up all over so many beautiful faces.  Acne won’t kill us, but it can certainly impact a good Zoom or Facetime!

Here’s a key tip when it comes to avoiding breakouts: try to reach for ingredients that are what we call “non comedogenic,” meaning they will not clog your pores.  As you guys know, I’m all about going CLEAN, so here are some clean ingredients that are BOWE GLOW approved and won’t break you out, followed by some natural sounding ingredients that are almost guaranteed to clog your pores:

BOWE GLOW APPROVED OILS & BUTTERS

Some of my favorite non comedogenic oils and butters that will NOT clog the pores are

  • Argan Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Safflower Seed Oil
  • Rosehip Seed Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Mango Butter
  • Raspberry Seed Oil
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Prickly Pear Seed Oil
  • Camelina Oil
  • Watermelon Seed Oil

LIMIT using on your FACE (and other acne prone areas like your chest or upper back) if you are breaking out:

  • Coconut oil
  • Wheat germ oil
  • Palm kernel oil
  • Linseed oil
  • Cocoa Butter

I have much more on this topic to share very soon!
