After a long day, you carefully wash your face with a cleanser and get ready to sleep. You never go to sleep without cleaning your face. That is your simple beauty routine until you learned that facial masks are important to keep your skin hydrated, smooth and clean. Good thing there are many benefits that come with combination skin remedies, like homemade face masks for acne prone skin or face masks for oily skin and black heads.
Face masks are usually applied after facial cleaning or exfoliating. Masks help remove impurities especially for oily skin. There are many types of masks that you can buy from beauty shops but you can also do your own homemade face mask for combination skin types.
Safe, Natural and Money-Saving
Fresh, natural and wholesome ingredients are ideal to make your organic face masks. If you made the choice of eating healthy and organic food, it also follows that you only want safe and clean substances applied on your skin. You don’t want unfamiliar chemicals found in commercial face masks to touch and penetrate your skin as this does get absorbed into your body.
Natural ingredients, free from harsh chemicals, are the main benefits that you get from using organic face masks for your oily skin. No harmful chemicals and preservatives make organic face masks safe to use. They are free form chemicals such as parabens that can cause serious illness and damage to our organs such as the lungs and kidneys.
Homemade face masks are also money-saving because you are spared from frequent visits to skin clinics where facial services are expensive.
Examples of Homemade Face Masks for Oily Skin and Acne
- Honey face masks can be used to treat oily skin and acne. Honey is usually combined with other ingredients like banana, strawberry or lemon to get the best results. This type of organic face mask can also help remove facial marks and other skin blemishes. Honey has anti-bacterial properties that help cure acne and prevent it from coming back.
- Oatmeal face masks absorb the extra oil from your face and lessen facial acne. Use natural oatmeal and combine it with honey and lemon juice. Apply it on your face and leave it there for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
- Yogurt contains natural lactic acid that helps skin stay smooth and clean. It also contains zinc that helps lessen facial scars and spots. Yogurt can be combined with grounded oatmeal and a few drops of honey to make the organic fresh face mask.
- Avocado mixed with lemon and egg white can yield a face mask that is perfect for oily skin. Use ripe and organic avocados to get maximum results. This type of face mask helps hydrate your skin and reduces acne. This homemade face mask works not only for oily and dry skin but for combination skin types as well.
Always remember to check the freshness of the organic ingredients that you use in making your face masks. These natural ingredients spoil easily. Choose your ingredients well and make sure that they are safe and pesticide-free.
