Oily Skin Remedy - Home remedy for oily skin

Homemade Face mask for Oily Skin

Make a puree of fresh tomatoes, apply to the skin.

For oily skin, apply a thin layer of toothpaste and leave until dry. Once dry gently wash face with warm water. This temporarily dries out oily skin.

Mix the apricot oil (1 tsp) and the palmarosa (2 drops) together in small dish. Put the green clay (1 tb sp) in a small bowl. Add the apricot oil mixture and stir. Add just enough warm water to make a spreadable paste, and work the mixture thoroughly to incorporate all the ingredients. Immediately apply the mask to a cleansed face and rest for ten to fifteen mintues. The mask will tighten slightly as the water evaporates and may feel a little strange. Don't worry; it's just the mask doing it's work. Finally, wash off the mask with warm water and apply a toner ans moisturizer.
Benefits: Green clay is also known as betonite, and is the most commonly used clay in the face masks. It has a slippery feel and can absorb large quantites of the water. This mask is used to draw out titties of water. This mask is used to draw out execess sebum, toxins, and dirt from deep down the skin and is best suited to oily skin. Green clay stabilizes the production of sebum and deeply cleanses the skin.

Beat together 1 egg white, 1 tsp spirits of camphor, 1 heaping Tbsp skim milk powder and a scant drop of essential oil of mint. First apply a thin film of odorless castor oil to the skin , then apply a thick layer of the egg white mask. Lie back for about 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water, then rinse with an apple cider vinegar and water solution or witch hazel.

When mixing your own Oily skin remedies, there is a good selection of essential oils to choose from:

  • Cedarwood - good for acne conditions and oily skin
  • Clary Sage - aids excessive sebum (skins oil) production and helps reduce inflammation
  • Geranium - balancing effect on sebaceous (oil) glands
  • Lavender - powerful regenerative oil, antibiotic, antiseptic, and promote the prevention of scarring
  • Sandalwood - a very soothing and strengthening oil, contains antiseptic properties to help control bacteria, is excellent for acne, and works to reduce excessive sebum production
  • Tea Tree - powerful antibacterial and antiseptic, good for acne conditions
  • Ylang Ylang - helps balance sebum secretion, good for toning excessively oily skin.

Other oils to blend with that are beneficial to oily skin are: bergamot, chamomile (for its anti-inflammatory properties), grapefruit (beneficial to congested skin), lemon, lemongrass, mandarin, petitgrain (good for oily hair too), and violet (will be more expensive, but good for oily skin).

Grapeseed oil is an excellent base oil, which is great for oily skin.
Try mixing in some carrot oil, which has properties that aid scarring reduction, inflammation, and is rich in vitamins beneficial to the skin: A, B, C, D and E. You only need a small amount of carrot oil, so add it as part of your carrier oil (using too much over a long period can cause skin discoloration due to its natural carroty orange pigment:)
Jojoba oil works wonders for oily skin - protects and moisturizes oily skin while it helps to balance sebum; it makes a good base oil for combination skins too.
