Pore Clogging Ingredients

Remember: “Natural” and “organic” do not mean “acne-safe.” Organic coconut oil will just give you organic pimples. There is also a major difference between things that are good to put in your body vs. on your skin.

The following list is your new skin bible: check all hair, makeup, lotions, and facial products to make certain they don’t contain these ingredients so you can avoid future breakouts!
