  1. Oatmeal mixed with enough water to make a half dry consistency and place on face as a mask and allow to dry they wash off. Removes the oil and allows the face to stay soft and supple.

  2. i like to use honey masks, and exfoliate with aspirin pills or baking soda.

    u can mix milk or lemon juice into honey, and u can add the softened uncoated aspirin pills or baking soda for texture, rub onto face, and leave on for a bit. rinse w/ warm water and apply moisturizer

  3. Half an hour before taking your bath apply on your face half teaspoon each of lime and cucumber juice mixed together.

    If your skin is excessively oily, mix in a few drops of eau de cologne. This not only helps keep oiliness away but also helps in refining the pores of the skin by acting as astringent, thereby preventing acne.

    To prevent the problem of your makeup becoming patchy either on the forehead, chin or nose due to excessive oiliness in these areas, apply a little cucumber juice on the excessively oily parts of your face, dry thoroughly and then apply your makeup.

    If your whole face turns patchy after makeup is applied on it, then apply equal parts of lime juice and witch-hazel. Dry well before putting on your makeup.

    Choose an astringent that contains acetone, which is known for dissolving oil. Strong astringents will do more harm than good, stimulating an overproduction of oil.

    To clear away excess oil, use a clay or mud mask. Blend together well 1 teaspoon green clay powder and 1 teaspoon raw honey. Apply the mixture to your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave it on for fifteen minutes, then rinse well with lukewarm water. Do this at least three times a week–or more.

    Once or twice daily, mix equal parts of lemon juice and water together. Pat mixture on your face and allow it to dry, then rinse with warm water. Follow with a cool-water rinse.

  4. Not a homeopathic remedy but will work at any rate.

    Oily skin can be alleviated by increasing your intake of vitamin B12 rich foods.

    ie:- liver, beef, pork, fish, eggs, milk and cheese.

    Because B12 is not absorbed well through the stomach go get yourself some multivitamin B complex supplements from the chemist. Just ask the pharmacist for advice on which brand is a good quality brand to buy. Avoid synthetic supplements as they are very hard to digest.

    If you are a vegetarian and have excluded eggs and dairy products from your diet, then you need B12 supplementatio

    Recommended daily intake for adults is 2mcg.
