Best Skin Care for Oily Skin

My skin is oily and I have a difficult time taking care of it. Any tips you can recommend?

Oily skin needs to be cleaned frequently. This is because the overactive sebaceous glands secrete excess oil. So, you must try to take a shower as often as you can. You can also make use of light face scrubs that wash off the excess oil. One such face scrub consists of almond and honey. Mix both these ingredients well and apply the resulting paste all over the face. Wash it off after around 10 to 15 minutes. Another popular face scrub for oily skin is that which contains aloe vera and oatmeal. Prepare the scrub and rub it gently onto the skin. You may then wash it off after 20 minutes.

If you feel the need to moisturize your skin, remember to choose a natural moisturizer that is bereft of oil. You can also use cucumber and lime juice to clean the skin. Apply the mixture on the skin just 20 minutes before you decide to step into the shower. Clay or mud masks are also known to help deal with the excess of oil. A commonly recommended face mask consists of clay powder and honey. It must be applied all over the face and washed 15 minutes after it is applied. This face mask must be repeated at least thrice a week.
