Oil Cleansing (yes, even acne prone skin)

I do not like sudsy facial cleansers. I learned a long time ago that those bubbles would strip my skin and leave my face parched and flaky. I’ve battled acne for as long as I can remember so I try to stay on top of what will and won’t cause a flare up. Oil has often had a pretty bad rap, especially for those of us with acne. The idea of cleansing with it would have traumatized a sixteen year old me, but in more recent years I’ve added oils to my daily routine with great results.

Oils are ranked from 0-5:

0 – won’t clog pores at all 1 – very low likelihood of clogging pores 2 – moderately low likelihood 3 – moderate likelihood 4 – fairly high likelihood 5 – high likelihood of clogging pores
