Do Face Oils Clog Pores?

Do Face Oils Clog Pores?

At Nakin we love a good face oil as it can help skin in so many ways by hydrating, line smoothing, calming and conditioning. However, we often receive questions asking if they can clog pores. There is no straight forward answer to this as it completely depends on the ingredients that the oil is made with. At Nakin our Revitalising Face Oil is formulated to not clog pores as we only use high quality plant extracts that are never overly rich or fatty.

Face oils are a popular skincare product, often used to nourish and hydrate the skin. However, there is a common misconception that face oils can clog pores, leading some people to avoid using them altogether. The truth is that face oils can be beneficial for many skin types, as long as they are chosen carefully.

Nakin’s Revitalising Face Oil is specially formulated with a combination of natural plant oils to help improve skin moisture balance and hydration, without clogging pores. Our unique oil blend contains argan, jojoba and sweet almond oil which have been carefully chosen for their ability to nourish the skin and support healthy collagen production.

The structure of these multi-molecular weight oils is similar to the natural sebum that our bodies produce in order to keep our skin healthy. This makes them much less likely to block pores than some of the other oils on the market which are ‘heavier’ in texture. The small molecular size also allows them to reach deeply into the skin tissue for maximum benefit, leaving your complexion looking and feeling plumper, firmer and more youthful.

Nakin’s Revitalising Face Oil is also enriched with Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant which helps to protect the skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause inflammation and lead to premature ageing of the skin. By using a product like Nakin’s Revitalising Face Oil which contains natural ingredients that help to combat free radicals, you can help keep your skin looking its best for longer.

The main culprit behind clogged pores is comedogenic ingredients such as coconut oil and cocoa butter. These ingredients are more likely to sit on top of the skin rather than absorb in, resulting in blocked pores. Non-comedogenic products contain lighter weight oils which can penetrate deep into the skin without causing congestion or irritation.

It is important to note that even non-comedogenic oils can be too heavy for some skin types. If your skin is prone to breakouts, look for products with lighter oils such as jojoba or grapeseed oil instead. Additionally, aim to select a face oil like ours that contains anti-inflammatory ingredients such as baobab and peach oil, which can help reduce redness and irritation.

To further ensure that our face oil does not clog pores, we keep it free from synthetic moisturising agents such as dimethicone. Instead of these the plant oils that we use create a barrier on the surface of the skin without blocking pores.

Overall, face oils can be beneficial to many skin types as long as they are chosen carefully. It's all about using the right products with the right ingredients. Find out more about our anti-ageing face products online at www.nakinskincare.com
