Homemade Face Masks for Oily Skin

If you have oily skin it can be hard to find a decent face mask that will not leave your skin too oily, but at the same time won’t take away too much of the oil.

If you have tried all of the ones that are on the market, and none work there are quite a few good combinations that can be made using the things you have at home.

For example, you can use honey, lemon juice and flour. Grated cucumber and lemon can be used, and also Aloe Vera gel mixed with tomato pulp.

Once you choose which of these packs you want to use, making sure you take into consideration the smells, mix the ingredients together until you get a slightly thick consistency but not too thick, and not too runny.

You have to make it the right consistency for it to set on your face and work properly. You can use normal flour, chickpea flour, or whole wheat flour if you have it available in your kitchen.

Once you put it on, lie down and do nothing for about 20-30 minutes, or until the mask naturally is absorbed, or hardens up. The Aloe Vera one, for example, is quickly absorbed, and you can layer a bit more on top.

There are quite a few pro’s to a do-it-yourself face mask. It will make your skin glow and give you a radiant look. It will hydrate your skin, and will make your skin soft without robbing it of the natural oils it needs.

You can also make this whenever you feel you need it and you don’t have to go off to the store once you are out of the product, like you would for a packaged one, as most of the ingredients are available at home. And the best part is that it’s really healthy for your skin! It’s also pocket friendly.
