Who should use non-acnegenic beauty products?

If you suffer from acne, you should always look out for non-acnegenic products, such as day creams, face masks and foundations. They're also great if you have sensitive or oily skin as they keep your face free from inflammation and oil build-up.

Are there any drawbacks to using non-acnegenic beauty products?

None at all. If you're suffering from a big breakout then be gentle to your skin – use wholesome, non-acnegenic products with no oils and don't overdo it with the cosmetics.

Is non-acnegenic the same as oil free?

Yes. All non-acnegenic products will be free from oil as oil is the most common cause of acne.

What's the difference between non-acnegenic and non-comedogenic?

There isn't much of a difference, to be honest. Non-acnegenic is free from oil and won't cause breakouts. Non-comedogenic is also free from ingredients that cause blackheads and whiteheads, but it isn't always oil free. Be sure to check the ingredients of your products beforehand.
