OILS FOR OIL CLEANSING – ALL SUITABLE FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Hempseed oil – very rich in linoleic acid, it balances the sebum production, reduces excessive oiliness, and prevents clogged pores and comedones. This is my top recommendation for oily, acne-prone skin that has active acne and breakouts. Keep it in the fridge!
Sunflower seed oil – this oil is silky smooth and deeply nourishing for the skin. Being very rich in vitamin E, it will soften your skin and treat dryness and flakiness. Best for dry, acne-prone skin.
Jojoba oil – very beneficial for all skin types, especially with the oil cleansing method. It sinks deep into your skin and gently cleanses it. Being a natural emollient, it leaves the skin smooth and soft. Use it ONLY when your skin is already used to oils, as it might cause purging in some cases.
Pumpkin seed oil – very nourishing to the skin and rich in zinc (great for acne!). A wonderful choice for acne-prone skin that is a bit dryish.
Rosehip seed oil – this is a great oil for reducing comedonal acne and breakouts, and fading hyperpigmentation. Best for normal to combination skin.
Grapeseed oil – this oil was my first love when oils just started to cure my acne. It is very light, absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy residue. I recommend it to those with very reactive and sensitive skin dried out by conventional acne treatments.
Living Libations Best Skin Ever – If you would like a more luxurious oil for cleansing that performs well, I highly recommend Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever for normal, combination, or acne-prone skin.
SOFT MICROFIBER CLOTHS FOR OIL CLEANSING
GroVia Reusable Terry Cloth Wipes – these are very soft! Suitable for extra sensitive skin, and it comes in a pack of 12, so you can always have one clean on hand.
Makeup Eraser – this thing works so well for removing makeup! I use it either just with water or with my double oil cleanse (oil cleansing 2-x in a row).
Rose water – this is a completely natural product, a leftover from a distillation process. It is incredibly soothing for the skin. I use it morning and evening and spray whenever my skin needs a boost.
NATURAL MINERAL SUNSCREENS – ALL NON-COMEDOGENIC (ACNE-SAFE)
Marie Veronique Everyday Coverage Tinted Sunscreen SPF30 – this is my current favorite! It is perfect for oily, acne-prone skin because it is so lightweight, yet offers a light coverage and mattifies. Perfect for under the foundation and everyday use. Green tea extract helps to prevent sebum oxidation, and hence clogging of your pores! Rated #1 in EWG’s 2014, 2015 & 2016 Sunscreen Guide.
Badger Damascus Rose SPF 25 Sheer Tint Face Sunscreen Lotion – Badger sunscreens are truly great natural sunscreens. However, some may be formulated with comedogenic ingredients like beeswax, but not this one. It is certified non-nano & non-comedogenic, formulated with aloe vera and sunflower oil, it also offers a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It does leave a bit of a residue, but it definitely does its job well if you are a lot in the sun.
Suntegrity – “5 in 1” Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen – Tinted -This sunscreen is, hands down, one of the best around. It effectively hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin with antioxidants, provides light coverage, and offers UV damage protection. It gives a natural looking coverage with a light, non-greasy feel.
Kiss My Face Sunscreen SPF 30 Sunblock for Face and Neck– Truly a great product by the Kiss My Face line! This in-part zinc oxide sunscreen for normal to dry skin contains a very good array of antioxidants, soothing agents, emollients, and it’s fragrance-free, too. This formula should be suitable for those struggling with dry skin and occasional breakouts as it isn’t as emollient as some of the other formulas in the Kiss My Face line.The amount of zinc oxide does not leave a white residue on the skin, and the formula is also water-resistant for up to 40 minutes.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals Sun Shield Unscented SPF 28 – This is an unscented, mineral-based sunscreen with Aloe and Vitamin E to soothe and protect. The formula is lightweight and absorbs quickly. Definitely a good mineral sunscreen that won’t clog your pores, especially in this price range.
