View Full Version : Oil Cleansing/Rosacea/Sensitive Skin
05-11-2009, 03:56 PM
I've read so much about the benefits of this cleansing method. I don't know that I have full blown rosacea but I do have very sensitive skin prone to redness. I can't use very hot water on my skin at all. Is there anyone here who has used this with sensitive skin issues and been successful....am trying to get rid of every chemical thing I can...thanks in advance~

Sounds like my skin type. I'm sensitive, prone to redness, oily skin with occasional breakouts, even at 55. The oil cleansing method was a complete disaster for me. It brought on problems I never had before and it was not as some like to say, "your skin cleansing itself". It brought out rosacea on my checks and weird bumps all over my forehead. It took months to get rid of it.
I use an organic product line called Bella di Terra. I found it at the Farmer's Market during my oil cleansing disaster. The woman that make it suggested I use her Lavandin Face Soap and Face Potion #19 for combination skin. She specifically said no scrubbing with sponges and no hot water. Wash gently with lukewarm water and pat dry. Apply the potion while your face is still damp. I've been doing that for a year now and swear by it. I will never experiment with my complexion again.

what oil cleasning method? i don't see any info.
i don't have an answer for your question... but i have rosacea and seb derm. i use prosacea on my face. rids most redness and takes the p&p's away within a couple days...depending how often i put it on. it's main ingrediant is sulfer and no meds nor animal testing.
what works for me may not work for others because we're all different and have different triggers.
since i've cut back on high lactose foods i am able to tolerate heat factors much better and/or may not got affected. lactose is was brought on this disease for me.
it's very important to discover what your triggers are. keeps notes of things you eat etc. stop eating some things for awhile then reintroduce it..see what happens. if you do this... you will likely prevent going into further stages. i wish i knew everything i now know about rosacea when i reached the beginning stage. rosacea is a digestive disorder. and once you've got it.. you can count on it there's been much damage inside.
for broken blood vessels on face.. oregano oil has really helped ridding! and taking some redness out. a few drops in water, drink, chug something afterwards because it's harsh... do this 2X a day.

I am wary of Prosacea as it has a bunch of junk in it. But I did try it and it did seem to help at first. Then I got some powdered sulfur and put that on like a mask ---sometimes it helps. Now my most recent thing is I'm going to be faithful to using water soluble ionic sulfur on my face and adding it internally.
Another current experiment is zeolite to clear up heavy metals in my system. And I still have some mercury amalgum fillings, which I'm slowly getting rid of....so this all may be moot until all the old fillings are out.....LOL
But I do agree with you on the digestive problems ---and things from within that cause rosacea. The sulfur on the skin may only be helping the symptoms. 12 yrs ago I had a digestive stool analysis done - which was right about the time I started with the rosacea,which showed I was low o dig enzymes and HCL, and although HCL and Dig enzymes have helped.....I still have flare ups......sigh. quite mysterious.....
I hope others with rosacea will post their findings here as well.
