Face Packs for Oily Skin

Face Packs for Oily Skin

When it comes to taking care of oily acne prone skin, natural face packs works wonders. Homemade face packs are not just effective but also low-cost and have no side-effects. Oily skin requires regular maintenance and special care otherwise acne, pimples, whiteheads and blackheads steal the beauty of the face. There are many creams, lotions and face packs available in the market to combat oily skin problems but these products are overloaded with harsh chemicals. Natural face packs not only give better results but they are gentle on skin, with no side-effects and are cost-effective. 

Few important things to keep in mind before we start-  
  • Always moisturise your face after removing the face pack.
  • If possible, exfoliate your skin a little using a mild scrub before applying a face pack. It helps in the better absorption of natural ingredients.
