Maintaining and taking care of it can be quite tricky, so we have for you some handy skin care tips for oily skin.
Beauty Tips for Oily Skin
Keep Skin Clean
The most important of all the skin care tips to deal with oily skin is to keep the skin clean. Wash your face at least twice a day with a gentle face wash. We recommend Himalaya Neem Face wash, which is meant for oily skin. If you observe oiliness even after washing twice, you can use a wet facial tissue like Origami Soft Wet wipes(Click to buy) on your skin or use a natural cleanser like besan or gram flour to cleanse your skin. This will keep your skin clean and shine free and also prevent the formation of pimples.
Egg Whites Pack
Another effective skin care tip for oily skin is the use of an egg whites pack. It effectively dries skin up the oil on the skin to reduce blemishes and tighten pores. Stiffly whisk together egg whites and apply it on your face in circular motions. Let it rest for ten minutes and then cleanse with water. A mixture of lemon juice and egg whites can alternatively be used in a similar fashion. The lemon juice helps clear out excess oil, while egg whites tighten the skin pores and smoothen out skin surface.
Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera is a highly suggested remedy for oily skin since ancient times. Wash your face thoroughly before applying the gel extracted from fresh leaves. To get a cooling effect, refrigerate the gel before applying it evenly over your face. Let the skin absorb the gel to impart a healthy, beautiful glow. It will not just protect the skin from external impurities but will also help control the amount of oil that is released by the skin.
We recommend the usage of Bio Care’s Aloe gel.
Almond and Honey Scrub
Honey and almonds have always been among the recommended beauty tips for oily skin. To start with, blend a few almonds with honey, and massage the mixture softly on face. The scrub should only gently exfoliate. After ten to fifteen minutes, cleanse first with lukewarm, then cold water. This helps get rid of the extra layer of oil and dirt, and cleansing out the dead cells to reveal rejuvenated and soft skin. Or we suggest that you get Khadi Almond and Honey scrub to do the job.
Banana Face Pack
Consumption and application of bananas are a surefire remedy to oily skin. Take a ripe banana; add a tablespoon of honey and about some drops of lemon juice into it. Mix well and apply over facial and neck area. Repeat the regime once a week to keep the skin’s excess oil and pimples at bay.
Strawberry Face Pack
Strawberries are a great cure to having oily skin since they have an astringent-like effect that tightens the pores and prevents secretion of oil. The strawberries should be mashed to a pulp and a few drops of lemon juice need to be added to form a paste. Cleanse face with water and apply the paste and leave until it dries. Rinse it off with cold water and pat dry. Repeating this a few times in a month will give you a blemish-free and shine-free skin.
