Safflower Oil for Acne
If you have been diagnosed with acne, we always recommend you follow your GPs advice when it comes to skincare. At Florena, each of our products has been tested on all skin types, however they are not specifically formulated to treat acne.
If you do suffer from acne though, or just the occasional outbreak of spots, you would be forgiven for thinking that putting additional oil on your skin will worsen its condition. However, safflower oil is non comedogenic which means it should not clog your pores. The anti-inflammatory properties it possesses means it also has the potential to reduce redness, pimples and spots.
It is also worth noting that many cases of acne are linked to hormones and that safflower oil contains unsaturated fatty acids which have the potential to help regulate the body's hormones. Using safflower oil for acne prone skin may also help to unclog pores and lead to a smoother complexion.
