About two years ago I switched to oil cleansing for my face. First I tried argan oil which was too drying, then I switched to castor oil with sweet
almond, also too drying, then jojoba which I really liked but is a bit expensive and hard to find where I live, then I switched to coconut and it
works perfectly for me. I switched to oil cleansing after doing a lot of research about natural ways to help my problem skin, which is acne prone,
super oily but also dry, and has a bit of redness. Oil cleansing seems to have been the remedy for the acne, sebum overproduction and dryness, but
the redness in my skin persists. I've tried sea buckthorn oil, which felt wonderful on my skin, but after about 5 months use didn't alleviate any
redness, and that's about it.
I don't necessarily want to buy drugstore products (don't ask me why, as I'm no organic hippy-esque lady, I've just always had an aversion to
them), but if anyone has any recommendations about products that have worked for them to alleviate redness in their skin I'd like to try them! I have
very pale skin, always wear sunscreen, can't get a tan to save my life, have a dairy intolerance which I don't take seriously enough (could be the
cause of skin issues?). The redness is only apparent on my face and sometimes my hands, which are very pink.
