Oils you can use

So I heard that if you use apple cider oil and stuff like that it helps heal open sores on your face. I dont own apple cider oil, and I don't know if I can use another type of oil. Would sunflower oil work?

The only oil i've tried is jojoba oil, its non comedogenic and its really hydrating. it may seem pricey but it lasts forever because a couple of drops are more than enough, and i feel like my skin heals faster. i use it to cleanse and as a moisturizer. I've read some people use coconut oil but they say it doesn't work for everyone, i might give that one a try sometime.

Lemon oil , tea tree oil and neem oil work well

Tea tree oil is amazing for any stage of healing or even using before you pick on a bump or blemish because it can heal and kill the bacteria or pimple we are often trying to eliminate or "fix" by picking. Jojoba is a nice light moisturizer that shouldn't clog your pores! I have never heard of apple cider oil but I have used apple cider vinegar in the past diluted with some water and it's a nice toner. I stopped using because I found washing my face with a gentle cleanser and using a simple moisturizer and tea tree oil either mixed in or as a spot treatment not only simplified my skin care but also did the trick to keep my skin healthy. The rest was up to me...self control not to pick!
