Tips & Tricks: Oily skin

Oil’s great for the hair, but a shiny face is so not in – here are some oil busters for you!

Oil is good for the skin, the natural sebum the skin produces that is – it forms a defensive layer on the skin and locks in the hydration to keep your face looking supple and youthful. But oily skin is really a pain to maintain – here are some super home remedies.

Raid your kitchen

  • Aloe Vera: Dubbed a wonder plant, aloe vera has many medicinal properties – and for oily skin – it’s just a super thing to have around. Just split open a leaf and scoop out the gel in a clean jar and store in the fridge – would last you about 8-10 days. Just smear on some gel, keep on for 5 minutes and then wash off for crystal clear, supple skin – free of oil!
  • Egg Yolk: Smelly but effective. The next time you are on a whites-only diet, don’t throw away that yolk. Beat it well with a fork. Dip a cotton ball and smear all over face (pinch your nose if you have to!) Keep on for 10 minutes and then rinse off – use a good face wash to keep the eggy smell at bay.
  • Luxe almonds: So yes, a little expensive but totally worth it – pulverise almonds together with honey for a sticky paste. Apply all over face and neck and then scrub off using a hot washcloth. Rinse off with cool water for a complete face lift – and freedom from oil!
  • Lime-n-lemony: Bursting with antioxidants and brightening properties, lemon is also an excellent oil absorber. Combine equal parts of lemon juice and rose water and apply it all over the face with a cotton pad. Wait 2-3 minutes and then wash off.
  • Baking Soda: Sounds completely anti-beauty and more kitchen cleansing but adding a pinch of baking soda to your facewash can work wonders – but restrict yourself to doing this just 1-2 times week lest you dry out your skin. Pour facewash onto your palm and then sprinkle baking soda – now gently rub all over face – avoiding eye and lip contour – keep on for a minute and then wash off  for an oil free face all day – this will also help in removing those blackheads!
