Skin Type: Combination Oily
Oily skin can be really bothersome, I’m sure no one with oily skin would disagree on this one. Be it any regular day or an occasion that requires us to wear makeup, oily skinned people always find it difficult to keep the shine away. We become too desperate to resort to any product that screams matte. No product is spared when it comes to oil-control, while there are thousands of products ranging from face washes to face packs or creams and lotions, all these can prove to be temporary solutions. So, today I have an article filled with loads of home remedies targeted at getting rid of oily skin. Yes, you read it right! These face masks help in getting rid of oily skin to a great extent provided you follow these religiously. I always say this, consistency is the key!! There is no miracle bound to happen overnight right. So, promise yourself to a skin care routine and the change is bound to happen for sure. Now let’s get started.
1. Wheat Flour Mask:
Mix two teaspoons of wheat flour with two teaspoons of curd and one teaspoon of honey. Mix well and massage your face for a few minutes, leave it on to dry and wash off with cold water. For best results use this recipe daily.
2. Multani Mitti and Vinegar Mask:
Mix two teaspoons of multani mitti with equal amounts of vinegar and milk to make a fine paste. Apply it over your face and let it dry. Wash off with cold water and pat dry. Do this twice a week to see quick results.
3. Orange Peel Powder Mask:
Mix two teaspoons of orange peel powder with required quantity of raw milk to make a fine paste and apply all over the skin, leave it on to dry and wash off with cold water. Do this as frequently as you can, to reduce the oiliness of your skin as orange peel powder absorbs and removes oil from pores very effectively.
4. Egg White Mask:
Take one egg white, add a few drops of any essential oil to make the egg smell a little bearable. Now whip this until it becomes stiff and apply it as a mask all over your face. Let it dry and wash off with warm water. Do this twice a week for best results.
5. Cucumber and Lemon Mask:
Grate about 1/4th cucumber and extract the juice, add half teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and add a few drops of rose water to this mixture. Apply a generous layer of this mixture over the face and leave it on for a good 30 minutes and wash it off. This remedy not only helps in reducing the oil production but also helps in removing sun tan.
6. Lemon and Honey Mask:
Mix equal quantities of freshly squeezed lemon juice and honey, apply a generous layer over face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash off with cold water. Do this twice a day to see impressive results as lemon is known to get rid of oil effectively.
7. Milk and Gram Flour Scrub:
Milk is an effective agent in removing oil, without making skin rough or dry. Apply a layer of raw milk over your face and massage for a few minutes and leave it on to dry. Now scrub this off with gram flour to get rid of all the excess oil and dead skin. Wash clean with warm water. Do this as frequently as you can.
8. Honey and Multani Mitti:
Multani mitti is an excellent remedy to get rid of oil but a lot of time it can leave your skin dry, to fix this add a teaspoon of honey in your mask, mix well and apply it all over your face. Leave the mask on to dry and wash off with cold water. Do this once in two days for best results.
9. Lemon Massage:
Cut a lemon into half and add a few drops of rose water to the lemon slice, now massage your skin well using the lemon slice, leave the juice on for 20 minutes and wipe off with a cotton ball once dry, follow up with cold water wash.
10. Tomato Massage:
Take one half of a tomato and rub it over your skin gently for ten minutes, leave the juice onto dry and wash off with cold water. Doing this daily will not only get rid of the oil but will also add instant glow to your skin.
So, these were a few home remedies to effectively combat that oily skin. Go on girls, try these to fight and keep the oil at bay.
