I have had sensitive skin since many years. Recently my cheeks and chin had become dry. So im using coconut oil on face at night since 7-8 days. It helps smooth my skin reduce the dryness. But along with it I tried washing my face with besan and milk twice a day since a week.
Now there are few red spots on my cheeks which feel dry and are visible only when I apply coconut oil.
Can anyone tell me what do I continue using? Or stop?

Stop using oil or milk on face as it may induce pimples on your face. Red spots could be due eczema caused by very dry skin. You may apply cetaphil DAM moisturising cream on face 2-3 times daily. Consult a dermatologist for red spots which may need prescription based treatment after examining you.
