Cleansing And Toning
The expert suggested that women with oily skin should use a face wash according to their skin type and then tone their face with chilled water. She shared that one can keep a box of cotton wool pads handy. She shared that after cleansing the face, one should soak the cotton wool pad in chilled rose water and then wipe the skin with it. This hack helps in reducing oil, closing the open pores, and improving blood circulation.
When it comes to taking care of oily skin, this step holds a lot of importance. It involves using a scrub or cleansing grain for deep pore cleansing. The expert suggested using a scrub prepared using rice powder with rose water. She shared one should rub it gently in a circular motion and then wash it with water. This helps in removing dead skin cells, refining pores, and removed hardened oil. She also shared that it helps prevent blackheads. However, she suggested not using scrub or grain on pimples and acne.
A face pack prepared using fuller's earth or multani mitti can help in reducing the oiliness on the face and closing pores. In a bowl, mix multani mitti, rose water, and mix well to make a paste. The expert suggested applying the paste three times a week.
She also shared that a face pack prepared using besan or gram flour and oatmeal can also help in removing oiliness from the face.
Another face pack, she suggested, could be prepared using besan, curd, and a pinch of turmeric. Mix all the ingredients well and apply to your face. Keep for 20 minutes and wash off.
Applying a face pack using curd, oats, and egg white can also be helpful, the expert suggested. She shared that this helps in closing open pores and can be applied thrice a week. (bridal ubtans)
