Please help me!

I don't know what to do with my skin anymore, I have tried so many products and nothing seems to work like it should...

My skin is dry on the top but greasy underneath and I got told that the best way is to clean it with a mild cleasing milk and avoid any harsh products like Clearasil.

I do that, but there are still a lot of clogged pores in my nose and chin area.

My skin is very sensitive so I use a toner without alcohol.

It moistures my skin a little bit, but that's it, it feels like there's still all the rubbish locked in my skin.

Because my skin is so dry I need a lot of moisture, but avoid anything that makes my skin greasy.

I have tried a lot of creams out there, but they all make my skin even more worse.

I have light rosacea under my nose and around my mouth, as well as pimples.

What can I do? Should I try out natural/homemade stuff like sheabutter and oil cleansing?

I would like to stick to as few products as possible.

Thanks for letting me have a moan everyone!
