Natural Treatment For Oily Skin

Many of us have the annoying condition of oily skin owing to different factors such as hot and humid weather, improper diet or hereditary causes. But sometimes in order to cure our skin we fall prey to various cosmetics and skin moisturizers which worsen the condition. Anyone would prefer a healthy, natural remedy instead of an artificial product loaded with harmful additives but the problem is we use only what we see in advertisements. We hardly see any adverisements on natural treatment for oily skin. We keep getting a lot of questions to our dermatologist asking for natural treatment for oily skin and to help our visitors here is a quick guide to get rid of your oily skin natural way.

When we said natural treatment for oily skin, we would like you to start with the most common items which are available in every household. Take half a teaspoon each of lime and cucumber juice and mix them together. Apply this mixture before you go for a bath.
Due to excessive oiliness, sometimes your make-up might also become patchy. You can apply cucumber juice to avoid this.
Facial mask is another good way to remove oil from the skin and an excellent way to make a natural clay mask is to mix 1 teaspoon each of green clay powder and raw honey. Apply this mixture smoothly all over your face, apart from the eyes. After fifteen minutes or so, rinse your face well with warm water. Repeat for atleast 3 days a week. You can also wash your face daily with a mixture of lime juice and cool water. This is an excellent way to keep the oiliness of your skin at bay. 
Natural treatment for oily skin does not not only mean applying household products on you oily skin. This being  a natural treatment of your oily skin, we have to include your diet too. Avoid taking junk food full of oils and fats. Fried snacks, alcoholic drinks all contribute to your oily skin condition. Instead start taking a diet rich in Vitamin b2 and proteins. Fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables are an excellent source for the same and one of the best natural remedy. And remember to drink lots and lots of pure water to keep those harmful toxins in your skin away.
Certain natural herbs, normally available at natural skin care stores, like Aloe Vera, Burdock root, Horsetai , Oat straw , thyme , etc also act as excellent natural treatment for oily skin.  Aloe vera has excellent healing properties while the rest nourish the skin and prevent oiliness. An excellent facial sauna can be made using lemongrass, licorice root and rosebuds. A natural herb called Witch hazel is an excellent oil absorber.
