Oily no more
Oily skin has its pros and cons--it's greasy to touch and is prone to blackheads and pimples but it also tends to age slower compared to other skin types, as natural oil protects it from fine lines and wrinkles. The best solution is to manage oily skin and minimize skin break-outs with these home remedies from healthfreetips.com:
Keep a bowl of water in the fridge and splash this cold water on your face three to four times a day. Cold water will not only leave you feeling refreshed but will also tighten the pores.
Neem leaves are excellent for pimples. Crush washed neem leaves to form a paste and apply this to the affected parts. Leave it on for at least an hour. Neem will help the pimples dry up faster.
For marks and blemishes left behind by pimples use calamine lotion. Just dab some lotion on the blemishes at bedtime and they will gradually fade away.
A great pack for oily skin is the chilled cucumber. Finely grate cucumber or blend it in the blender to form a paste. Chill in the fridge. Apply it on the face and relax for 15 minutes. Wash off with cold water. For best results, repeat twice a week on cleansed face.
