Many often ask me what this term means, well breaking down this word. ‘comedo or comedones, if more than one) is a form of acne and is the result of a clogged pore. Therefore ‘non’ comedogenic means the opposite, unblocking of clogged pore. Or a product that has been tested to be non comedogenic means it is less likely to clog pores and ultimately has a much less chance to cause acne.
Should I care? Yes indeed! If you have a problem like I used to have, wondering why is it that I still suffer from acne even though I use expensive skin care products to cleanse my skin?
The fact is it is likely that you are using the wrong type of skin care products. If you have oily skin and skin which is prone to acne and gets clogged up easily, you need to make sure the products you are using are non-comedogenic. That’s what you should be looking for when you are out looking for your skincare products.
Some general skincare products out there which are not non-comedogenic may be good for other purposes such as moisturizing effect or wrinkle improvement, but if these are not tested for non-comedogenic, these products are highly likely going to clog up your pores even more. So even if you are using the most popular and most expensive cleanser or moisturizer out there, you could actually be doing more damage to your skin by blocking up pores.
