Which oils should be used for blemished skin?

Spots, blackheads, scars, inflammations... Each skin type can face various imperfections. The causes are diverse, which is why it can sometimes be difficult to precisely determine their origin. Imperfections mainly stem from excessive sebum production leading to pore blockage. Let's focus on vegetable oils suitable for skin with imperfections.

Characteristics of blemished skin.

Skins prone to blemishes often have a tendency to be combination to oily. They are characterised by an overactivity of the sebaceous glands, which begin to produce sebum excessively, giving the face a shiny and glossy appearance. In response to this imbalance, the pores dilate even more, allowing sebum to accumulate. Indeed, the skin is not capable of absorbing beyond its needs. Thus, the excess sebum ends up clogging the pores, which leads to the appearance of blemishes such as pimples or blackheads.

However, combination to oily skin types are not the only ones that can be prone to blemishes. The dry skin, dehydrated skin, etc... can also be affected. Nevertheless, many other factors can also be the cause of blemished skin: unbalanced diet, unsuitable beauty routine, comedogenic or overly abrasive, hormonal disorders (puberty, menopause, change in contraception, menstrual cycle, etc...), smoking, alcohol, pollution, lack of sleep and other excesses... Therefore, it is fundamental to choose gentle, purifying and balancing care, adapted to one's skin problems, to regain a healthy epidermis.

The vegetable oils recommended for blemished skin.

To regain their balance, blemished skin requires gentleness. It is therefore appropriate to favour light, non-comedogenic vegetable oils, which are penetrating, with healing, purifying, anti-bacterial and regulating properties to treat this type of skin. The best vegetable oils for blemished skin are the jojoba vegetable oils and hazelnut oils. They will notably regulate excess sebum, combat blemishes, tighten pores, rebalance the skin, hydrate and nourish it:

The vegetable oil of hazelnut.

Thehazelnut vegetable oil is a valuable ally for skin prone to oiliness and blemishes. It notably performs hydrating, protective, purifying, softening, and nourishing actions. Being very rich in unsaturated fatty acids, hazelnut oil helps to rebalance the hydrolipidic film, tighten the pores to prevent infection, and regulate sebum secretion. This allows it to soften and protect the skin against external aggressions, as well as to correct the harmful effects of excess sebum.

Containing phytosterols, thehazelnut oil also has a healing effect on the skin. Non-comedogenic and non-greasy, this oil penetrates quickly and easily into the epidermis thanks to linoleic acid, without leaving a greasy film. It is also suitable for mature skin due to its content of vitamins A and E. Indeed, it helps to delay the appearance of wrinkles. However, hazelnut oil is not recommended for people allergic to oilseeds.

Note : Our purifying botanical blend also contains hazelnut oil. This night serum helps to purify the skin through the sebum-regulating and anti-inflammatory actions of 7 botanical extracts.

The vegetable oil of jojoba.

Rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acid, jojoba oil has a composition very similar to sebum, which allows it to have a strong affinity with the skin. Indeed, it blends with the sebum to form a light film on the skin, thereby strengthening the hydrolipidic film. The skin is then protected from external aggressions and dehydration. This oil also has the ability to rebalance the seborrheic activity and the pH of the skin, and thus to reduce the appearance of imperfections (spots, blackheads, etc...).

Non-comedogenic, the oil penetrates deeply and rapidly into the epidermis to regulate sebum production and aid in cellular regeneration, without clogging the pores and without leaving a greasy sensation after application. It also promotes improved healing of the epidermis.
