For those of you who are sick of feeling and looking like someone smeared something greasy on your face here are some ideas for you. Instead of spending a fortune on going to a spa there are simple solutions right in your own kitchen. Plus you still get that pampered treatment without feeling the huge dent in your wallet. Here are a couple of options you have to help treat your oily skin. The first option you can use is making your own facial masks at home. From masks consisting of yogurt, oatmeal, and even tomatoes, there is sure to be one that works for you. Here are a few recipes that can help control your oily skin.
1 cup of (plain) yogurt
1 teaspoon of honey
Mix well together and apply to face for 15 minutes. Rinse off with water.
You can decide the amount of oatmeal you want and then add water. Mix well enough until creamy paste and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
½ cup of cooked oatmeal
½ of a mashed apple
1 egg white
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Mix well together until a paste forms and leave on for 10-15 minutes (depending on how it dries). Rinse off with lukewarm water.
If making your own facial masks isn’t your cup of tea, then here are a few suggestions of masks you can buy at a store and/or online.
Beyond Belief ABH Pore Refining Clay Mask (Sally’s Beauty Supply Stores and online) Deep Down Detox Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask (Ulta Stores and Ulta.com) Yes to Tomatoes Total Treatment Facial Mask (Target Stores and Target.com) Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque (Sally’s Beauty Supply Stores and online) Remember that these are not the only recipes or products that can help your skin. There are hundreds to possibly thousands of different combinations of homemade recipes you can use. Plus with just as many facial products your options are limitless. Some directions will call for a moisturizer after using the mask while others do not call for one at all. Make sure your face is cleansed before applying the mask and check if you are allergic to any of the ingredients whether the mask is homemade or not. I know it can be overwhelming finding products that work or don’t work for you, but luckily with so many options, it is more than likely there is a solution to your skin problem. Despite what direction you may or may not take, the point is to sit back, relax and get ready to have more beautiful skin!
