In Topic: Is Argan Oil Comedogenic?

18 January 2013 - 06:51 AM

Tim, I've been supplementing with specific vitamins/supplements, a cleaner diet, and meditating. The only thing I can't seem to give up is diary ;__; I love it too much! But I might try for a month if I have the willpower. I'm making a lot of changes in my lifestyle but I also want to use more natural products on my face than I do now, because they might be too harsh and stripping. I'm not sure, I just think natural will probably be better (and healthier, and much better for the environment! Which are the reasons for my decision)

I've had some success starting these methods, but I still have inflamed acne, and scars left behind from what has started to clear...and I read argan oil was good for both inflamed acne AND scars, which is why I thought it might be good to give it a go!

In Topic: Vitamin D Deficiency And Sun Exposure, Is It Good For Acne?

They say to get 10-15 minutes a day of sun exposure (if it's the summer, never from 11-4 pm) without sunscreen a day. The rest of the day, wear sunscreen to protect your skin. I'm not sure how that translates to acne, but absorbing vitamin d from the sun is good for your overall health. Chances are you're going to me moving around/walking and getting that anyway. Just make sure to wear a protecting sunscreen that won't break you out! La roche possay has a mattifying one and it is the best one I've found for acne.
