OCM/Facial Care

I recently started using the oil cleansing method and so far I really like it. I'm using 3 parts almond oil to 1 part castor oil. I've also been massaging vitamin e around my eyes, forehead, neck, and laugh lines. I'm not sure that I'm using the best combination for my skin and I'd love some tips on how you care for your face. I feel like I'm still needing more moisture after I wipe the oil off. I've read that coconut oil can clog pores... I'm using that as a body moisturizer but I'm worried about using it on my face. My problem areas are blackheads in my t-zone. I don't really have any pimples or major issues but I do have some minor sun damage, my skin has been looking dull lately, and I'm noticing more and more fine lines and wrinkles. I exfoliate with a baking soda paste but I don't do that every day because it seems too harsh.

What can I use that's already in my kitchen to correct these issues. I have sensitive skin but it tends to be dry. Traditional cleansers and moisturizers seem to enlarge my pores and make my blackheads look way worse.
