Ingredients Used & Their Benefits
- Argan oil – I choose argan oil because it is one of the best oils for acne since it has a comedogenic rating of zero (doesn’t clog pores). It also helps with skin lightening for evening out discolored and blemished skin.
- Rosehip seed oil – Rosehip seed oil is great for anti-aging but it’s a miracle worker for getting rid of acne scars and blemishes!
- Black seed oil – This is one of my favorite oils for combating acne internally and externally. I love to add it to my beauty products because it is a powerful fighter of acne and has a high linoleic acid content which is good for those with oily and acne prone skin. See Carrier Oils Rich in Linoleic Acid for more details.
