5 Best Face Masks for Oily Skin

Hello peeps,
This is my very first post on my blog and I’m super excited ☺
Okay now, coming to the post, if you are reading this, then you have an oily skin and want to get rid of it.
Oily skin is the result of excess oil secretion and it’s accumulation on the outer layer of the skin which leads to whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and many other skin woes.It surely is a pain to deal😫
The excess oil is the result of the sebaceous gland producing excess sebum. People with oily skin have large pores and have shiny skin. Oily skin is difficult to manage with the outbreak of acne playing havoc or the blackheads causing stress.


And guess what? You do not need to buy expensive products which promise you of so many things but have little to comfort your skin woes. You could use these simple home remedies which are easily available and are very effective.

Here are top 5 home remedies for oily skin.

1. Banana Face Mask- 
In a bowl take 1 ripe banana, 1tbsp honey.Mix these two ingredients well.Make sure the bananas are mashed properly.Add into it a few drops of lemon juice or orange juice and mix well.Apply this mask on your face for about 20 minutes and then rinse it off. This mask works best on oily skin. Follow with your toner or simply apply rosewater.


2. Gram flour face mask-
Mix 2tbsp gram flour, 2tbsp of milk or rosewater, 1/2 tsp lemon juice and 1/2 tsp turmeric.(add only a pinch of turmeric.You do not want to end up with a stained face instead of a glowing one)
Apply this mask on your face and rinse off with cold water after 15-20minutes.

3. Fuller’s Earth(multani mitti)-
This probably is the best face mask for oily skin.It acts as a natural cleanser and is very effective in curing acne breakout. It basically soaks the excess oil present in the skin.
In a bowl mix 2tbsp fuller’s  earth,1tbsp rosewater and a few drops of lemon. Mix these well and apply it on your face for 15minutes and then wash it off. Apply a good oil-free moisturiser to prevent over dryness.


4. Tomato juice-
Simply cut a piece of tomato and rub it on your face and let it sit for 15minutes and then wash it off. Do this thrice a week to make your skin healthy, even-toned and flawless. Tomato juice is known to diminish the blemishes.Tomato juice has natural astringent that is best for oily skin.

5. Orange peel face mask-
For this face mask take some orange peels and let it dry in shade. When they have dried grind them into powder form. You can store this for a long time. Now take 1tbsp of this powder and mix it with rosewater or yogurt.Apply this on your face to get a radiant skin. This mask helps to clean the clogged pores which  is the main problem of people with oily skin. This too like tomato has natural astringent which removes extra oil from the skin.


Random Tips-
1. If you have sensitive skin dilute the lemon juice and orange juice
with water.
2. Wash your face at least 3 times a day.
3. Cleanse your face thoroughly  with facial cleansers and use a toner after that. If you are out of toner you could simply apply rosewater.
