6 non-comedogenic skincare products for spot-prone skin
If your skincare is causing you to breakout, it could be time to go non-comedogenic. Try these six products to rebalance your skin!
Generally, non-comedogenic products will be water-based and oil-free, so typically natural cleansers, lightweight creams and serums will be your go-to for everyday skincare. Work in a toner to balance the skin's pH levels and avoid anything that feels over-drying or gives the skin an uncomfortable tightness.
It's also worth investing in a purifying face mask which can be used once a week. Search for detoxing ingredients like charcoal which will draw out deep dwelling impurities.
Finally, every skincare routine requires a SPF. Yes, some can be overbearing on the skin and cause pores to be blocked quickly, but mineral sunscreens are less likely to exacerbate acne.
Without further ado, here are some noncomedogenic approved heroes that you can add to your routine to replenish your skin without clogging the pores.
1. Cleansing oil
