I have got really sensitive skin, so many cleansers irritate it. Has anyone tried any DIY cleansers that have helped their acne? I have made lots of natural face masks, with ingredients such as honey, oats, natural yogurt avocado banana etc, but Im not sure what would efficiently clean my skin twice a day. ideas for moisturizers would be helpful too!

Those other things can be good things to apply once in a while, but aren't needed for cleansing.

its good to use a wash clothe with as well or if you dont atleast rub your hands in your face hard enough to get it worked in

Make sure the oil is cold pressed, organic and 100% pure. Unrefined if possible. Check the comedigenic ratings of the ingredients in your face products, you'll be surprised how many "non-comedegenic" labels are lying.
You can also use your carrier oil (not the castor oil) as a moisturizer. Works great, prevents excess oiliness and 4 drops is all you need. I use Emu oil and Hemp seed oil. LOVE IT. The less ingredients the better.
Bar soaps are bad because the fillers needed to make the soap a solid. Chemicals will irritate. With sensitive, acne prone skin, less is more.
You can also use plain, raw organic honey (unfiltered) as a cleanser. Works great, hydrates and tastes awesome! LOL Its about $5 a jar at any grocery store, and lasts a looooong time.
