I know I have combination skin. My t-zone can get oily. I have white heads only around the bottom edges of my nose, but mainly get pimples on my forehead or the sides by my ears...but my cheeks are dry. For the past few months I've been trying to go natural in an attempt to avoid "bad" ingredients in some of my past products. I, religiously, check every product I'm about to use up against cosmeticdatabase.com. My biggest ingredient concern is petrolatum based on this reason to avoid it: "Petrolatum or petroleum jelly - Highly occlusive, clogs pores and causes acne, a suspected carcinogen. Petroleum by-products can pass through the brain barrier and cause ADD/dyslexia symptoms." The next ingredient I try to avoid is parabens, based on a number of reasons I read to avoid it. In an attempt to go natural for bar soaps I've use/used: 1. Aubrey organic bar soaps, in particular, the Rosa Mosqueta, Meals & Herbs exfoliating (current one in use), and the calaguala treatment bar soaps, all of which dried my skin on both my face and body out. Each bar is $6+ dollars). 2. Dr. Bronners mild baby bar soap (made my nipples sensitive to where it burned when using, so I stopped using this.) 3. Earth mama Angel baby shampoo and body wash (dried both my face and body out.). 4. Shea moisture head to toe baby wash (contains Japanese honeysuckle which is a natural paraben, and that can't be good.) As for moisturizers: 1. Aveeno daily moisture lotion. (Problem it contains petrolatum which clogs the pores especially on my face and back). I'm at my wits end, what do I do? Naturals isn't working. Dove was the only soap that never dried me out, but the ingredients are bad and it clogs my pores, too. After searching and reading: I may use baking soda or a washcloth w. a face wash to exfoliate my face, or a salicylic acid bar soap or face wash to exfoliate, once a week. I'm switching to body washes. I still don't have a a particular face wash, or a moisturizer. I'm so dry.
