We all have must heard a lot about the term "dadi maa and naani maa k nuskhe". They always had some tips in their magical minds for all kinds of ailments, problems and issues. The biggest tension of every young girl is oily skin mainly because it is more prone to acne and pimples. They hate it the most when people call them miss Chip Chip. So here are some tips from my granny’s diary which can help to get rid of oily skin.

  • EGG WHITES: Whip one egg white, add the juice from half a lemon and mix it well. Apply the mixture on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. This will tighten the skin and soak up excess oil. Egg whites are high in vitamin a and can be very effective in tightening and toning up of the oily skin.
  • LEMON JUICE: Mix 1 tbsp of lime juice to 2 tbsp of water and apply this on your face and let it dry for 5-10 minutes before using warm water to wash it off. Lemon juice work as an astringent as it is a good source of citric acid and restores skin’s pH balance.
  • APPLES: Apples work as a great exfoliating agent and they have mild antiseptic, astringent, and soothing properties that make them a great home remedy for oily skin. The malic acid in apples helps exfoliate dead skin cells and absorbs excess oil from the skin’s surface. So we should say “an apple a day keeps the oil away!”
  • CUCUMBERS: Cucumbers are known for their cooling and soothing properties. The high vitamin and mineral content they have, including vitamins A and E, magnesium, and potassium, are good for oily skin. Cut a fresh organic cucumber into thick slices, and rub them thoroughly on your face. Leave it on overnight and rinse with warm water in the morning. Do this daily before going to bed.

Use these remedies and get rid of oily skin.

Don't be disheartened with oily skin and curse it yet, for oily skin has been found to age better and have lesser wrinkles than people with dry or normal skin.
