10 Home Remedies for Oily Skin


Oily skin is the result of excessive excretion of sebum sebaceous glands, that are located under the skin’s surface. It leads to numerous skin problems such as acne that result in acne marks, blemishes, pigmentation, etc.

The Cause

Having an excess of sebum may result in a lot of skin issues but at the same time in a controlled proportion, it is also helpful for maintaining skin moisture and hair health. Here are some tips that you must follow to have healthy skin with no excess oil.

1. Wash your Face Twice a Day

If you have oily skin and you do not wash your face at least twice a day, it may lead to clogged pores that store oil within the skin, leading to acne and other skin problems. Hence, remember to wash your face once in the morning and once before you go to bed.

2. Use an Oil Control De-Tan Face Pack at least once a week

Just like using sunscreen is necessary to prevent damage from sunlight, similarly, using a de-tan face pack leads to the removal of suntan, excess oil, pigmentation, etc. It is like a weekly rejuvenation pack that clears the pores and removes dead cells, thereby restoring your natural glow. You can use the Bella Vita Organic De-Tan Face Pack enriched with camphor, basil, kaolin, and lemon to get the best results on your oily skin.

3. Honey

Honey possesses antibacterial and antiseptic properties that can be used raw on your face to prevent acne and other oily skin issues. Apply a thin layer of honey on your face and leave it for 10 minutes. Then wash it with water. Use regularly to see results on your oily skin.

4. Multani Mitti

Multani Mitti takes a clay-like texture and is rich in zinc, silica, oxides, iron, and magnesium which provide goodness to your skin without any side effects. Since it is absorbent, it eradicates excess oil from your skin and hence can be used daily. One of the best ways of receiving the natural benefits of Multani Mitti is through the Bella Vita Organic Ubtan Plus Face Pack which contains both Multani Mitti and Sandalwood and hence works wonders on your skin.

5. Neem

Since the Vedic Age, neem has been known to be a powerful antiseptic that helps heal acne that may result from oily skin. Furthermore, neem helps in repairing scar tissues that reduce acne marks and blemishes. A product with the natural goodness of neem that can be used daily is the Bella Vita Organic Anti Acne Face Cream Gel that helps in controlling excess oil. The gel-based cream also contains tulsi and tea tree oil that help lessen acne and acne marks.

6. Lemons/Natural Vitamin C

Lemons are a natural source of vitamin C which is a healing agent for oily acne-prone skin. It treats damaged skin and improves skin texture. You can use the Bella Vita Organic Vitamin C face wash to get the goodness of vitamin C through an ayurvedic and natural formula.

7. Almond Oil

Almond oil is a great exfoliating agent that removes all dead skin cells and heals the damaged patches on the skin which may be a result of acne, suntan, oily skin, etc. For oily skin, do not use the almond oil directly on your face. Mix it with honey for the best results.

8. Aloe Vera

The benefits of Aloe Vera on the skin are numerous, owing to its herbal remedial properties. The most widely used form of Aloe Vera is from the aloe barbadensis Miller plant species that is said to absorb readily in the skin, thereby reducing excess oil and repairing skin damages.

9. Cucumber

Regular application of cucumber on the face provides relief from puffiness and swelling, hydrates and cleanses the skin, and controls the secretion of oil from the oil glands. It also helps in combating aging, dark circles, and wrinkles.

10. Walnut Scrub

Walnut scrub is known to remove suntan as it is rich in minerals and proteins and the texture of the scrub helps in better exfoliation. It prevents the body pores from being clogged with dirt and oil. You can use the Bella Vita Organic Exfoliate Face and Body Scrub Grit that will help you get rid of many of your skin problems.
