Shopping for Acne Products
Water based products have mostly water and only a small amount of oil, if any. This is a good thing if you have acne, as adding more oil to an oily face will only lead to more breakouts.
Just what it sounds like, oil-free products do not contain any oil. Again, these are a great choice for people with oily skin.
These products have been shown not to clog pores, so in theory, they will not cause your skin to breakout.
This term comes from the word "comedone," which is name for whiteheads and blackheads. Since these products are labeled "non" they have been shown not to create comedones and should not break you out more.
When shopping for products, look for these words as a guide for skin type appropriate choices. Remember, this is especially important for products that sit on your skin, such as moisturizer and foundation.
