An oily skin can be identified with its shine and greasy feeling. Those who have this skin type keep complaining about the disadvantages associated with it. The oily feeling comes because of excess of sebum released by the oil glands. This attracts lots of dirt and grime, and keeping the skin clean is a big challenge.
Moreover, the oil often clogs up the skin pores and results in the formation of blackheads, acne, and other skin blemishes. When this skin type is not taken care of, the pores become more visible and the skin looks dull.
To keep the radiant look of your facial skin intact, you must use some homemade face masks regularly. The best part of using such products is that they can be used without any fear of side effects. Here are a few recipes of easy homemade masks for oily skin:
Mash the piece of avocado so that you get a soft pulp. Then put the beaten egg, lemon juice, and mashed avocado in a blender and mix well. Apply on your face after you cleanse and tone your skin.
Blend 1 teaspoon of finely grounded cinnamon powder, 2 teaspoons of honey, and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg powder in a blender. This is one of the best face masks for acne prone skin. Here cinnamon acts as skin exfoliating agent, and honey reduces skin inflammation caused by pimples. It is good for acne scar removal too.
Prepare a thick paste by mixing up 3 tablespoons of baking soda and water. Massage this paste gently all over the facial skin for few minutes to get rid of the blackheads. After that, keep it for 10 minutes before you wash it off.
Before you use any of these masks, you must cleanse your face thoroughly. You should keep the facial mask for about 10-15 minutes. After you rinse it, you must apply a good quality oil free moisturizer on your face using a just the tip of your fingers to improve blood circulation.
