Many people think that if they suffer with acne, breakouts and clogged pores, that putting oil on their skin would make it worse and whilst not all people get on well with certain oils – and everyone’s skin is different, there are many benefits of Safflower Oil that can help to clear and heal acne prone skin.
Safflower Oil comes from a thistle-like plant and its nourishing oils are extracted from the seeds. With a high content of linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid). It provides many benefits to the skin.
Rich in Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids are ‘essential’ for skin health. They nourish the skin, increase its moisture content and improve its general condition. The fatty acids in safflower oil stimulate skin cell regeneration and help skin to feel smoother and more supple. As a result the elasticity of the skin is also improved. Safflower oil can enhance the skin’s barrier function or help to improve a skin barrier function that is impaired. It helps to lock moisture into skin and also improves dry skin conditions – giving life to a lacklustre complexion.
Beneficial For Acne Prone Skin
Safflower Oil is helpful in clearing, preventing and healing acne. Blocked pores are cleared as the oil blends with and breaks down the sebum and dead skin cells that are trapped. It purges out impurities, dirt and bacteria. Anti-inflammatory properties help to calm and heal the skin and the safflower oil also boosts skin cell regeneration. As a consequence, blemishes and marks left by acne or breakouts heal and can also fade more quickly.
Using Inappropriate Harsh Skincare Products
Harsh skincare products are often mistakenly used in trying to clear acne and breakouts. However, they can have the opposite effect and damage the skin’s barrier function. Leaving the skin more open to bacterial infection and inflammation. Harsh products strip the skin of moisture and as a result make it very dry and also irritated. Another, more gentle approach is much kinder to the skin and can be much more successful.
