Oily skin can be the hardest skin type to treat. You have to avoid using cleansers that are too harsh or the oils will build up and cause a major acne breakout. Luckily for you, there are several safe and effective cleansing masks that you can make right at home. The ingredients that are used will level out the oil production in your face while removing black heads and giving your skin just enough moisturizer to give your smooth and silky skin.
Egg Whites And Oats
An egg white and oats mask works in a variety of ways. The egg whites will tighten your skin. When your skin tighten, the pores begin to close which means that your oil production will start to minimize. Oats remove the pore-clogging dead skin from your face while absorbing excess oils.
Combine one egg white with one-half cup of ground oats until the mixture is blended well and creates a thick paste. Massage the mask to your face using small, circular motions. Let the mask sit for five to ten minutes before removing it with a wash cloth and warm water. To give your face a healthy glow, add a teaspoon of honey.
Apple And Lemon
These two fruits are both packed with acids that clean out your pores and remove the excess oils, so both of them together will do wonders for your skin. Apples and lemons will also work as a natural exfoliant, removing dead skin cells. You can also add a few drops of peppermint oil to help tighten your skin and close your pores.
Mix one tablespoon of applesauce, one teaspoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of peppermint together in a small bowl. Apply the mixture to your face for ten minutes before removing with warm water and a wash cloth.
Milk And Lemon
When you have oily skin, you can't use too much moisturizer. Using too much moisturizer will stimulate your oil production, making your face break out in acne. Milk and lemons is the perfect combination for oily skin. While the lemons are removing the excess oils, the milk will nourish your skin and give it the right about of moisture that it needs so that it doesn't dry out.
Combine one-half cup of milk with two tablespoons of lemon juice. When your face is dry, gently massage the mixture onto your face. Gently wash it away with warm water.
Having oily skin can be the pits if you don't know how to take care of it properly. By using one of the natural and effective homemade facial masks listed above, you will cut down on your skin's oil production, making your skin look healthier in no time.
