1. Wash your face with lukewarm or cold water
Warm water is the simplest remedy to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin. It will reduce sebum (sebum is an an oily secretion of the sebaceous glands) production. Wash your face with lukewarm water and pat it dry. And then, splash a little cold water on your face to close the open skin pores immediately. Follow this routine at least twice a day to see effective results.
2. Use salt spray
This is one of the most unique methods to get rid of oily skin. All you need is a spray bottle to mix a teaspoon of salt with water. Shake the bottle well so that the salt completely dissolves in water. Now, spray this mixture on your face, at least once a day and pat it dry. You will notice a visible difference on your skin.
3. Toner and cleanser
It is important to keep away the excess oil from your skin, so use blotting paper or face tissues to clean off that excess oil during the day. A mixture of vinegar and rose water works as a wonderful toner for oily skin. Green tea and rose water toners also work quite effectively. Cleansing your face with milk is also an effective way of getting rid of oil. It is important to remember that all skin types need moisture, so always keep your face moisturised.
4. Scrub your face
Oily skin attracts more dirt and dust as compared to the other skin types. In this case, exfoliation not only helps in removing dead cells but also cleans pores. Almond and honey scrub is best for such skin. Just add small amount of almond powder with honey to form a paste. Almonds are also effective for removing blemishes from the skin as they have natural skin whitening property.
5. Aloe vera
Another effective face scrub can be made using aloe vera gel. Aloe vera is also very helpful in getting rid of excess oil. Grind 2 tsp of oatmeal coarsely and mix it with aloe vera gel. Massage your face with the paste for few minutes and rinse with cold water. You will notice that oiliness has reduced remarkably.
6. Egg white
Egg whites also make an excellent face mask for oily skin. It can either be applied directly on the skin or can be mixed with other face masks. Mix 1 tsp of honey in the egg white along with flour to make a paste. Apply this mask on the face and leave it for about 10 minutes. Once the mask dries, wash it with water. The egg white masks will not only soak the oil but will also tighten the skin.
