Effective Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Oily Face

Wash It Regularly

Washing Face

Every girl with oily skin knows, the oilier the skin, the dirtier it looks and feels. So it is important to keep your face clean by washing several times a day, there is no definitive number of times though. Every person’s skin needs are different.

Start by washing your face twice a day and depending on the reaction on your face you can increase. Washing it too often may rip your face off essential oils. So be careful with that.

Say No To Moisturizers

Say No To Moisturizers

You require absolutely no moisturizer for your face; your skin is already doing it for you by producing enough oil to keep your face moisturized and free from dryness. In extreme cases you can use water-based light moisturizers.

Scrubs And Masks

Scrubbing Face

Like all other skin types your oily face too needs to be exfoliated regularly using scrubs made for oily skin. You can also use homemade scrubs. Scrubbing removes extra oil deposition from the face and rubbing in areas like nose and chin removes blackheads too.

Be careful not to overdo, as it may stimulate pores for more oil production.After scrubbing you can apply a mask such as a clay mask or mud mask which soothes your skin and reduces any greasiness from the face. Leave the mask for 10minutes or until it is dry and rinse it off.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera works wonders for all skin types with its rejuvenating properties. Its anti microbial properties are ideal to treat the acne and pimple prone oily face. It contains beneficial compounds like polysaccharides, lectins and mannans etc.

Prepare an aloe vera mask by boiling and grinding aloe vera leaves. Add honey to the paste and apply onto the face for 20 minutes and rinse it off with cold water.
