You don't find that Dr. Bronner's is slightly drying? I've been having problems with my oily skin as well, and although I switched back to Proactiv for a little while, I really don't want to get back into that cycle.. (really dries out the skin, which can only be compensated by more lotion..no good.) I had a sample of Burt's Bees facial cleanser which was really refreshing and didn't leave my face tight or dry, you might want to try that? I also ordered another "natural" gel cleanser (they say those are better for oily types,) so I'll give you a heads up if that works for me... I eat a lot of nuts too, but I doubt the O-6 in them is causing a flare-up, especially since you're balancing it with O-3..
