Do you have oily skin? Besides promoting acne, it can be very irritating as it can cause your make-up to melt.
Oily skin also contains lots of sebum and tends to accumulate more dust and dirt than other skin types.
Apart from using astringents and toners for oily skin, it is essential to use natural facial masks to prevent acne and other skin problems. Try these home-made natural face mask recipes:
Strawberry and yogurt facial mask
Place 4 fresh, ripe, clean strawberries in a bowl. Smash strawberries using a fork. Add one teaspoon of plain yogurt. Stir well until the mixture turns smooth. Apply the mixture to every inch of your face.
Leave on for 10-15 minutes and then remove the mask by rinsing your face with lukewarm water. Yogurt will naturally exfoliate your oily skin and eliminates excess sebum from the pores.
Apple and honey mask
Grate one fresh apple finely. Add 4 tablespoons of honey.
Mix the mixture well and apply to your entire face. After 10 minutes, rinse it with lukewarm water.
Avocado facial mask
Separate yolk from one egg. Add one teaspoon of lemon juice to the egg white, and mash with half an avocado until a soft pulp is formed. Place all these ingredients in a blender until it forms thick mixture. Apply the paste to your face and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry your face with a towel.
Remember, before applying any kind of face mask, wash your face thoroughly. Don’t leave the mask on for longer than instructed. When applying the mask, take time to relax to achieve better results. Generally, using face masks twice a month will keep your skin glowing.
