It removes the makeup residue and excess oil as well. For oily skin types, you should use an excess oil removing cleanser to keep your face fresh and oil free. Keep in mind, you should use a cleanser that removes excess oil not remove all the oil as it needed for a soft moisturized skin. A non lathering good branded cleanser is better or you can prepare your own natural cleanser at home. There is nothing hard in it, all you have to do is paste a scoop of oats with yogurt until it’s smooth. Spread this smooth cream all over your face and neck.

Give light strokes in circular motion with your finger tips and wipe with soft cotton or tissue. After wiping the cleanser, wash off your face and neck with warm water. Pat dry.

2. Steaming:

steaming face Facial Steam is an ancient skincare treatment which works effectively in removing dirt, oilness and in opening up facial pores. It is very essential to steam your face before using a face mask as steaming softens the skin and open up pores. So that the nutrients of the mask penetrates deeper into your skin which results in glowing soft skin. Steaming is a very simple process and oily skin types can use dried herbs like lavender, rosemary and thyme while steaming your face. Take a sauce pan and fill it up with water. Add some dried herbs to the water, bring it to a boil and switch off the stove. Now by covering head with a towel,
allow the steam to penetrate and work on your skin for 5-8 minutes. Close your eyes and relax. This process opens up the pores and makes your face ready for the mask.

3. Clarifying Facial Mask:

Take a small bowl and add two spoons of fullers earth, two spoons of tomato puree and a teaspoon of fresh yogurt to it. Now mix few drops of lemon juice to this mixture and blend well until it becomes smooth. You can also add some water if the consistency is too thick. The consistency of this mask should be neither too thick nor too thin, it should be smooth and moderately thick. Now using a brush apply this smooth mask evenly over your face and neck avoiding the eye areas. Dip two cotton pads in rose water or cucumber juice and place it over your eyes. Now relax and wait for 15 minutes until the mask dries.

After fifteen minutes, gently wipe off the mask using wet cotton pads and wash your face with cold water. Pat dry. As this face mask contains fullers earth, it effectively removes excess oil. The yogurt, lemon juice and tomato extracts works well on clarifying acne scars, uneven skin tones and improves skin complexion.
