Using the wrong products cause many skin problems. You should be using non pore clogging moisturizer for all types of skin - oily or dry.

If your pores get clogged your skin won't breathe properly. Toxins in our body are partly removed through our skin, and if pores are closed the toxins won't be able to escape. This will cause many skin problems, including acne and blackheads.

If the facial moisturizer you are using has mineral oil on the label it is not a non pore clogging moisturizer. Mineral oil coats the skin to keep in moisture, but this is not a good thing, because it also

builds up under the skin and prevents nourishing vitamins and minerals from helping us have the healthy skin we desire. Read the labels and stay from mineral oil in products.

Liquid paraffin or paraffin wax is another ingredient often listed on labels of skin care moisturizers. These can strip the natural oils from the skin, which causes chapping, dryness and other early signs of aging.

My mother is in a nursing home and has a lot of problems with dry skin. I noticed the other day one of the products the home had for her to hydrate her skin contained petrolatum. This is a petroleum-based product that should not be used on the skin. It will interfere with the skin's ability to eliminate toxins just like mineral oil does. I quickly removed this from her room, and exchanged it for a healthy product for her to use.

Product ingredients that are safer and more useful if you are looking for a non pore clogging moisturizer are:

· Macadamia Oil - This oil absorbs into the skin without being greasy. It will restore any moisture your skin loses as you do your day-to-day activities.

· Active Manuka Honey - You might argue that this can't possible be a non pore clogging moisturizer when you think of this sticky substance. But honey used in skin care products is dried and then added to creams or lotions. You'll find active manuka honey a great moisturizer leaving your skin soft and smooth.

· CynergyTK - A wonderful moisturizer that won't clog your pores. It also has the ability to stimulate your body to produce more collagen and elastin, which is needed to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. Along with hydrating all layers of your skin it will also solve the wrinkle problem we get as we age.
