Problem: Combination Skin With Oily T-Zone, Acne, Blackheads

I have a very oily t-zone along with frequents bouts of acne. I also have rosacea on both of my cheeks.

My top concerns are getting rid of the oiliness, getting rid of acne, and getting rid of my blackheads. I also have very large pores on my nose that I have blackheads. I cant seem to get rid of the blackheads. I feel like they are always there.

Question submitted by: by Karen (Missouri, USA)

Hi Karen

I am really sorry to hear about your skin challenges! But I’m also really excited that you asked this question because this is one of the conditions that got me hooked on homemade, natural skin care 15 years ago!

When someone has combination AND sensitive skin with acne one of the most important parts of your regimen (at least in the short term) is balancing the oils (aka. sebum) in your face.

What I learned from my own condition is that when you have oily skin on your t-zone and dry skin+ rosacea the main condition is actually too much oil – even in the dry spots! It’s just that it’s trapped and is causing a reaction in those dry, rosacea areas.

The thing that will likely solve your problem is improving circulation in your skin and normalizing the production of sebum. For that, I’m going to recommend 3 ingredients. All of them should be easy-to-find and aren’t overly expensive.

Please follow the process mentioned below for at least 10 days. That’s how long it should take to start noticing results.

Keep in mind that once your skin is closer to normal you will have to modify your treatment.

The Ingredients

1. Jojoba Oil
2. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
3. 1% Yogurt

Jojoba oil is a great oil for people with oily to normal skin. It’s also antiseptic.

I picked this oil for you because it’s one of the only oils that helps decrease the production of sebum (aka. oil in the face).

Try to get past the fact that you’re adding oil to oily skin. If you really can’t stand the effect wipe your skin with a wet cotton pad after applying it. If done properly (outlined below) it shouldn’t feel oily after applying it though.

Over the years I have found that Ylang Ylang is the most effective essential oil for balancing the production of sebum in the skin. An added bonus is the amazing scent!

You can usually only find the grade 3 oil. It’s fine to use, but if you can find grade 1 or 2 (and your budget can handle the price) it would be ideal.

Plain Yogurt is an amazing cleanser, it will also provides a little bit of top-level moisture to your rosacea. It also has antiseptic properties which will be great for your acne.

I suggest 1% yogurt because it’s less oily than the alternatives – which is essential given your oily skin.

Make sure you get a brand with probiotics. And make sure there isn’t any sugar added.

I suggest adding this to your diet as well. Often times, rosacea is a result of an unhealthy gut. Sometimes, simply adding yogurt (or a probiotic pill) to your diet is all that you need to do!

All of these ingredients are extremely gentle. They shouldn’t affect your rosacea at all. And they’ll all help with your oily skin.

The Process

1. (morning only)

a) Add 1 tablespoon of yogurt to your hands
b) Massage it into your skin
c) Rinse with luke warm water and dry with a soft towel

2. (evening only)

a) Boil some water in a pot and remove it from the stove. Let it sit for a couple of minutes.
b) Add 10 drops of ylang ylang essential oil and a teaspoon of jojoba oil
c) Cover your head with a towel and let your skin absorb the steam for a minimum of 2 minutes (and no longer than 4). Any longer would be bad for your rosacea
d) Wipe your face with a cotton pad

This is an excellent way to get rid of blackheads and remove makeup.

Make sure the steam isn’t too hot though. If it is it will affect your Rosacea. Move your head away until the steam cools off a little bit to get the best results.

This should be a pleasant experience – it shouldn’t be painful or feel like work because the steam is so intense. Near the end of the process it should feel like there is barely any steam emanating from the pot.

3. (morning and evening)

a) Apply a drop of Jojoba to your skin
b) Massage it in for a 30-60 seconds. Once the oil is absorbed continue to massage your face for another 30-60 seconds without moving your fingers over your skin.

Reason for Recommendation(s)

I understand that your oily skin, blackheads and large pores are your biggest concerns. My recommendation above is based on addressing this problem to some degree but actually focuses on your rosacea.

Why? I believe that by addressing the Rosacea (trapped oily skin under your cheeks) your addressing all of our other problems as well. This

I am confident that this process will help with your blackheads, open pores, acne, oily skin and rosacea. If however you find you’re still having issues open pores I’d like to offer you a face wash recipe that includes Dead Sea Salt and a facial mask. I’ll also suggest a different essential oil for the steaming process. So please do let me know how it goes!

But for now, please try this for at least 10 days and come back to let me know where you’re at. I’d love to recommend next steps.

I just got pregnant and amid all the excitement I have a few worries. First, I’m not sure of the body changes that I might experience. Secondly, I am afraid I may not be able to sleep at night soon. I watched my sister go through a lot of difficulties to sleep during her pregnancy, and I am scared it will happen to me as well. Will a pregnancy pillow help me sleep better?

Thanks for the something totally new you have disclosed in your post. One thing I’d like to touch upon is that FSBO interactions are built eventually. By bringing out yourself to the owners the first end of the week their FSBO is definitely announced, ahead of the masses get started calling on Friday, you make a good association. By mailing them resources, educational components, free reports, and forms, you become a strong ally. Through a personal affinity for them along with their scenario, you develop a solid network that, on many occasions, pays off if the owners opt with a real estate agent they know and trust – preferably you actually.

I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.
