Emu Oil helps in the treatment of clogged pores and acne for the following reasons:
- Its chemical make-up is very similar to our own skin’s natural oil. The oil deeply penetrates human skin when applied. This moisturizes the skin, shrinks the appearance of large pores, and loosens the blackheads making them easier to dislodge.
- It is non-comedogenic which means it does not clog the pores of our skin. This is one of the oil’s remarkable features.
- It is bacteriostatic which means it does not support the growth or reproduction of bacteria so, when applied, it does not agitate any current acne condition.
- It is highly concentrated with natural anti-inflammatory compounds to make it effective in soothing the feel and look of acne infection.
Pure emu oil can be applied directly onto the skin, at least twice daily, to any area where there are clogged pores or onto any other skin infections or inflammation. It is suggested that for best results treatment be carried out between two and four weeks and then at least once a day as required. Emu oil is 100% safe to use.
Many blackheads will dislodge by themselves, but this can be assisted with a gentle skin scrub. Whiteheads can be exposed to the air with a gentle skin exfoliator. Specialized products may also help with the removal of blackheads. Such products are available from your drug store.
Apart from helping to treat blackheads, whiteheads and acne, emu oil is also useful in helping to treat the following skin conditions:
- Razor Burn
For these reasons, emu oil has been used by Australian Aborigines for thousands of years as an “Elixir of Life” and is now well known around the world as a First Aid Kit in a bottle.
