My skin breaks out easily so I use the following morning and before bed:
- Toner to neutralise skin ph (I'm using Burt's Bee toner)
- Light moisturiser for oil skin (I use Aesop)
- Sunscreen when I go out because I live in Australia and the UV here is like wtf (Korean sunscreens are really good!)

Boys. Sit. Down. I got dis  Cheers Cheers  Cheesy

I've always had combination skin. Too oily on the T-zone, but somehow breaking out in pebble beach patch of white-heads whenever I use anything to control the oil.

After years of trying everything out (All the major brands + the so-called acne-focused brands. Did you know even burtsbees has some questionable ingredients?) without success, as a last resort, I tried the hippy-dippy shit: all natural.

And my goodness. It worked. Now my friends refer to me as someone having exemplary clear skin...
The only "chemical" that I've kept is Benzoyl Peroxide in the morning, and a tiny tab of salicylic-acid-containing moisturizer at night.

My daily routine looks like this.

Morning:
-Benzoyl Peroxide cleanser, applied using finger and hands
-Witch Hazel and cold-pressed Aloe Vera, alcohol-free "toner." Spritz
-Burts Bees SPF 30 daily moisturizer (although not perfect, when it comes to sunscreen ingredients, they use the mildest)

Night:
-Tea Tree Oil and various essential oils with natural ingredients, applied and scrubbed using terry cloth
-Witch Hazel and Aloe Shit I mentioned above. Spritz
-Then I mix in my palm: a bit of cold-pressed 100% aloe vera juice which has grapefruit seed extract as the preservative, 1 small pump of cold-pressed argan oil, 3-4 drops of 100% Lavender Essential Oil, tiny dab of Neutrogena moisturizer with salicylic acid.

Of course everyone has different skin types.. But with most other conventional products, I noticed that it swings the "pendulum" too much because it works too quickly/strong on my sensitive skin. Rather, going the hippy route took longer, but actually managed to balance my skin.

I have always had a mixed type skin, with well demarcated skin zones. For many years I simply neglected it because it was too much trouble to care for it, and I hate all skin care routines. Ended up with skin like orange peel = white heads, blackheads, bumps etc. I also developed a skin condition called roseacia, with all its attendant redness and hyperpastic bumps.

About two years ago, my sister suggested that I try using coconut oil on it and it worked beautifully. I simply spread a thin layer of organic coconut oil on after I wash my face - in the morning and just before going to bed. Also, immediately after taking a shower. It took about two months, but it resolved all my skin issues. Ive recieved many complements on my skin recently, especially after a 54th birthday party that my colleagues threw for me at my new job. Most people had assumed I was in my early 40s rather than 54.

I buy everything in bulk, so these links might not be the best deals currently available, fyi. These are what I bought during my last batch purchase. Also, I did do a lot of research into each of these products before actually settling on em. Been on this routine for a year or so now.

Appreciate your links. But I found it's not the same as your routine described above. For example you didn't include grape seed extract in your links. I wonder is it modified?

Oh, those are the ingredients already listed in the products!
I did make one mistake though: It's not neutrogena brand moisturizer, it's Aveeno.
