Is it OK to use BIO OIL on acne prone skin?

I have very oily skin and just bought a bottle of BIO OIL to get rid of the scars.Do you think that it will cause my skin to have another breakout? 67 mths ago

Best Answer

I would give my face or other affected area's a good wash before applying any oil containing medication for the fact your skin has its own oils. Just remember, it may take some time before you see any results......I would really try, please give us feedback.

It might. I would honestly recommend using a small amount on a small area of skin before going the full hog. See what that does. Good luck and do give us feedback

I don't think that is a good idea as your skin may break out again. My daughter's dermatologist told her never to put any oil based product on her skin - even the moisturiser is oil free.

I have no idea.

Just apply it to the scars with a ear bud. Don't cover you whole skin with it.

I did - great for scars, but bad for acne and oil control. Try C'est la V's suggestion.

No no no!! Absolutely not! Don't do that to yourself- it'll only make your skin break out even more. Trust me on this one- I'm talking from experience here.

You should first get the acne under control before starting any treatment to reduce scarring. I have a 18 year old son who had really bad acne and the doctor prescribed Purbac (the same stuff I was giving my horses when they were sick). I was skeptic at first but after a week his acne was starting to clear up. One thing you shouldn't do to deal with acne scars is load up your face with masks or fancy lotions, it may irritate your skin further, making the scars red and even more noticeable. If you have a red or brownish mark on your face that you got from a bad zit, have no fear — it will eventually fade. For bad acne scars you might need a chemical peel or laser treatment.

When our daughter went through puberty acne struck and a plaas recipe that WORKED was apple cider vinegar, tastes awfull ,1 table spoon a day works.

It may work. Remember that washing your face too often makes acne worse because your skin is making more oil to compensate. Quite often acne is also hormonal (in women).

Yes you can. Put it on at night and sleep with it. Bio Oil is the best!

67 mths ago

no I would not do it

67 mths ago

I agree with C'est la V.

No it's not ok. I use Bio-oil, and it says not to use on open or infected areas. You must always follow the instructions on the label or pamphlet, they are put there for a reason. And especially not with acne.

I would say that acne will break out but it will be part of the process of your sken cleaning itsself. Wash your body part first to get rid of the dirt and oils

I would not advise the use of any oil based product as it wil only clog up the pores and aggravate the situation. The best thing for acne prone skin is to keep it clean and free of unnecessary creams, powders etc. maybe you should I thnk even applying it with an earbud will be a problem cos im sure u dont have just one spot thats a problem.
