How Organic Oils Work to Control Acne

  1. If I told you to treat your oily, acne-prone skin by using oil, would you believe me?

I’m serious when I say that this actually works, but unfortunately, the beauty industry has brain-washed everyone into believing that oil is bad.R Devine Skin Care Treats Acne

I am here to tell you that it’s not. The most effective way of treating acne is with oil.

Back in 2002 when I was in Aesthetics school, I was taught to get rid of the oil in the skin by using harsh products

After graduating, skin care became a huge passion for me. I wanted to know exactly how the skin worked, and why, so I continuously took advanced courses. When started learning about holistic skin care, I fell in love with the beauty of organic skin care.

Why Conventional Beauty Has It All Wrong

The skin naturally produces oil because it needs oil in order to function. If we use conventional products that strip our skin of oil, what do you think might happen? Excess oil production. If you strip away the oil that the skin needs to function, your skin will start over-producing oil in order to compensate. The more you strip the oils, the harder your skin will work to produce more oil.

The result? Skin addiction! If you stop using conventional products, your skin will take a few days or even a few weeks to realize that you’re no longer stripping away the essential oil. For the first several days, your skin will be extra oily. The problem is, most people see this excess oil and immediately jump back into using these nasty chemical-based products, and this creates the skin addiction. However, if you stop using these products and let your skin take its course, it will begin to balance out within a week or two and the over production of oil will start to decrease.

How Does Using Organic Oil Benefit Oily Skin?

If you think back to high school science, you should remember the whole theory of how like dissolves like. You see, conventional beauty products are all made of mostly water (it’s always the first ingredient on the label). What happens to the oil in a drying pan if you just wash it with water and no soap? Nothing! That’s why the huge beauty companies all put cheap drying chemicals into their water-based products – because water alone won’t control oil.

Now if like dissolves like, what do you think would dissolve oil? When you start using oil-based skin care products, your skin will be fed a sufficient amount of oil, so it will no longer need to produce excess oil. In turn, your skin will stop producing excess oil. Hello balanced skin!

Which Oil is Best for Oily Skin?

It is important to keep in mind that not all oils are created equal in skin care. Coconut oil has been a huge trend over the past few years. While coconut oil is great for the body and for people with dry, mature skin, it’s not a good choice for oily skin because it is comedogenic, meaning it will clog your pores. However, there are many oils out there that do not clog pores and very closely mimic our skins natural oil. Oils that work best for oily skin are Hazelnut oil, grape seed oil, and jojoba oil, to name a few.

The R Devine Skin Care products that work for oily skin are the products that took me the most time to create when I was working on developing the organic skin care line. I played around with several formulations to find the perfect mixture of oils that would work to detoxify, balance and heal acne-prone skin. Sacred Balance is the best facial serum for combination, oily, and acne-prime skin. It’s made up of nourishing, healing, moisturizing and astringent oils that all work together to balance the skin.  I spent months perfecting this beautiful organic skin care serum.

And Remember…

While reading this information, it’s important to remember that not all acne is caused from using the wrong products. It would be wonderful if acne was that simple but sadly, it’s not. Over production of oil in the skin can also be caused from hormones, stress, dietary problems, and more. But the first step to treating acne is to rid your cupboards of conventional products that strip your skins oils, and switch over to natural, organic skin care. Your skin will love you for it!
