oily skin usually feels very greasy. the texture is often very thick and coarse and there are large, visible pores on your facee. after a wash it feels fine but by midday it looks shiny. here are some home remedies to try and rid your oily skin.
almonds and honey;
the luscious combination of succulent almonds and sweet honey works well as a gentle facial scrub for removing oils and dead skin cells. mix a small amount of ground almonds with honey to make a paste. gently massage the paste into your skin with a comfortably hot washcloth. rinse with cool water.
be abrasive, but in a mild way. liquid soap users can add one half of a teaspoon of baking soda into the mixture. rub gently onto oily areas such as the nose and chin. this gentle abrasive works well in getting rid of blackheads as well as oil. rinse with cool water.
cornstarch dries up oily patches. mix one to three tablespoons of cornstarch with enough warm water to make a paste. rub on your face, let dry, and then shower or rinse off with lukewarm water in the sink. try this once a day for best results.
this gift from the sea is nature's best desiccant. place tepid water into a small spray bottle and add one teaspoon of salt. close your eyes, and pretend you're at the seashore. then squirt some of this salt spray on your face once during the day. blot dry.
a good way to exfoliate the skin is with white or apple cider vinegar. apply using a cotton ball before bedtime. leave it on for five to ten minutes and then rinse with cool water. you'll need to use this remedy for three weeks to see improvements. if your skin is super-sensitive, dilute the vinegar with four parts water. for a summertime treat, chill the vinegar or freeze it into ice cubes and apply as a cooling facial.
if you're willing to do some creative cooking, your effort will be rewarded with this homemade, oil-ridding facial. mix half of a cup of mashed apple, half of a cup of cooked oatmeal, one slightly beaten egg white, and one tablespoon of lemon juice into a smooth paste. apply to your face for fifteen minutes, then rinse with cool water.
a fast fix for removing oil shine requires one of the simplest foods; the egg. an egg yolk mask dries out the skin. apply the egg yolk with a cotton ball to oily spots. leave on for fifteen minutes, then rinse with cool water.
