Homemade Beauty Products For Oily Skin

It's summer time, most of us might get the same problem - unwanted oily skin!! So, do you have oily skin?

Oily skin needs special care to ensure the skin is moisturised without becoming too oily. Oily skin is also prone to break outs. I've found some useful tips to share and you don't have to spend a lot of money to have a clean, fresh skin!! So the ingredients in these home made beauty products are designed to soothe and purify troubled complexions.

Acne Facial Mask

1/4 grapefruit (seeded and peeled)
1/4 lemon
1/4 apple(cored, do not peel)
20 green seedless grapes
3 tablespoons chopped watercress
1 egg white

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender on medium speed for 2 minutes or until turns puree. Apply gently to the face and leave on for 20 minutes to 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and gently pat dry with a soft towel.


2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
8 sage leaves
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
2 stalks fresh bok-Choy (with leaves)
6 tablespoons witch hazel
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup water

In a saucepan boil 1 cup of water together with some sage, parsley and thyme. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and leave it to cool slightly. While still warm, pour the liquid into a blender with the bok-choy, witch hazel and lemon juice. Blend all of the ingredients on medium speed for 2 minutes. Strain mixture through a coffee filter or paper towel and pour liquid into a small cosmetic bottle. Apply to face with a cotton wool ensuring you blot all over.


1 tablespoon lemon extract
1 tablespoon orange extract
1 tablespoon lime extract

Combine all ingredients in a small cosmetic bottle and shake vigorously. Using a pipette put 3 drops of mixture onto fingertip and gently apply to face using a blotting action. Use less on T-zone area.
