 Oily skin  is due to genetic reasons and age. This problem is caused due to excessive secretion of sebum oil from the oil glands of the skin.

Most people use a wet cloth, wipes or tissues to remove the shine from the face .  Home remedies are cheap and without any side effects. Some of the home remedies for treating hair fall are:

1. Use grated apple to treat oily skin.
Take 1/2 an apple and grate it to a pulp ,if you like you can mash it up further to a paste and apply as a face mask or you could cut up round apple slices and place them on face . This helps in reducing the oily sheen on face

2. Do not use alcohol on your face to control oil since harsh products  can trigger more oil production on face .

Instead use a good oil  control face wash , Neutrogena (oil control face wash ) or the more gentle cetaphil face wash. The tea tree oil face wash from body shop can also be used. A non alcoholic toner can be used.

Use face blotting tissues to remove excess oil from  the T zone and around your nose is where you get very oily patches.

3. Avoid food items with oil and fats. Avoid processed, junk and sugary food, as they affect oily skin adversely.

4.  Frequently wash the face with cold water and apply Rose water as this will help to reduce the oil on your face.


5. Drink cucumber and karela (bitter gourd ) juice daily in the morning on an empty stomach for controlling oily skin.
