3 Best Homemade Face Mask for Oily Skin and Blackheads :

Now that we have talked about the ten best face masks for oily skin available in India, I am going to list 3 face masks for oily skin DIY which can help you get a clean and radiant skin at home. I love using natural ingredients for skincare and using a DIY face mask on weekends is my idea of pampering my skin on a weekend.


Take fresh yogurt in a bowl. Mix 1 tablespoon of gram flour/besan and a few drops of lemon juice to the mixture. Add a pinch of turmeric. Mix it well and then apply to clean skin for a radiant skin. This is one of the best DIY face masks for oily skin and is used by Indian brides before the wedding to get that bridal glow.


Oatmeal is not only a superfood for the body but is also a great ingredient for the skin. It absorbs excess oil and exfoliates the skin naturally. Apple and honey hydrate the skin and give it an AHA boost for reducing signs of premature aging. Soak some oatmeal in water and then grind it to a fine paste. Mix apple and honey in it to use it as a face mask. You can use apple juice or grate the apple for this face masks for oily skin DIY recipe. It is a great homemade face mask for oily skin and acne also.


Banana is another wonder ingredient for skincare and replenishes the hydration levels of the skin. Mash a ripe banana with some honey and lemon juice and apply it on clean skin. Let it stay for 15-20 minutes and then wash the face with plain water. Using this face mask for oily skin DIY recipe regularly will give you a clear and soft skin in no time.

So these are three of the best face masks for oily skin DIY which work equally well as the store-bought masks if you are in a hurry. You can also use tomato juice as a face toner to get rid of excess oil as tomato is one of the most common ingredients for creating DIY face masks for oily skin.

Which is your favorite face mask for your skin type?? Any face masks for oily skin DIY you love?
