I started on the oil cleansing about a week ago. I suffer from really I mean really dry red sensitive skin. I ofcourse have an appointment with a derm, but I needed some relief until then. I had pretty good skin until I started using a new product by clinique and ever since then my skin has looked horrible and the redness and dryness won't go away. I had no idea I could do this to myself by trying a new product but it really screwed my skin up. I guess my first question is, why was my skin in really good condition until I used a new product for a few weeks and ever since then the problem won't go away. Do you think it can be solved by a derm?
Second question is the only relief I get is from oil cleansing. The results are slow but I can def tell my skin is healing because it doesn't burn anymore and its not as dry. Right now I use sunflower seed oil because it seems to work better than olive oil, at least for me. It even gets my makeup off without needing castor oil. I would like to try some new oils to speed up the damage I must have caused by using that new product. Any suggestions on oils that might hydrate a bit better? Thanks for reading my long questions:)
