Pore Clogging Ingredients to Avoid

You read many articles and hear of countless beauty professionals and dermatologist advising to use products that are non-comedogenic or non pore clogging if you are prone to acne.

So when choosing your facial cleanser or skin moisturiser, is it as simple as just grabbing a product that claims “non-comdedogenic” on the labels?

The answer is NO.

Sadly, I’ve come across products which claim to be non-comedogenic but in fact contain pore clogging ingredients. If you’re a product label fanatic like me, which likes to go through and study each ingredient on a product list, then you’ll want to know exactly what pore clogging ingredients to avoid when selecting your skin care or makeup for your skin (especially for those with oily skin).

When it comes to finding the right product for your skin, you simply cannot trust the claims of companies and brands. 9 out of every 10 anti-aging product will claim to reduce your fine lines. But how many of these so called anti-aging products out there actually remove or reduce your wrinkles…..

To know your product is to know the ingredients. The following pore clogging ingredients list was provided by the Face Reality Acne Clinic. You can find them at http://www.facerealityacneclinic.com. It will help you eliminate those products which will clog your pores from those that won’t.
