Ask an oily skin beauty about her nightmare and she would say her acne prone skin. Oily skin is the most welcoming skin, for acne, zits and breakouts and no matter what you do, acne just don't stop popping up in your face. Every skin type has natural oils which are actually good for the skin, but when excess sebum oil surface the skin, then they get prone to acne. Even your lifestyle, food habits are equally responsible for acne breakout and the best way to deal with it is to maintain a good skin care regime and healthy diet. In order to maintain good skin care regime, we request you to involve the four major steps that would keep acne at bay. Cleansing, toning, exfoliation and moisturising. Many of us skip the exfoliation step, but when you exfoliate you stimulate blood circulation, shed dead skin cells, get rid of blackheads and turn your skin soft and healthy. With so many benefits of exfoliation, we share quick homemade scrubs that would help all the oily skin beauties.

1. Strawberry, oats, and honey scrub:

This scrub has three powerful ingredients that would help in reducing the oiliness as well as remove the dead skin cells, dirt, and grime. Strawberry are a good source of Vitamin C that reduces excess sebum in the skin, destroys collagen, fights free radical and makes the skin healthy. Whereas honey has Vitamin B3 that hydrates the skin and keeps acne at bay and oatmeal is a natural exfoliant that will clean the deep pores, make your skin soft, smooth and radiant.

2. Tomato and sugar scrub:

Tomatoes help in reducing the size of the pores and indirectly reduce the excessive oiliness on your face. Along with removing the pimple scars, marks it has antioxidants that make your skin youthful. Sugar retains the moisture content and removes excess oils from the pores.

Banana is an excellent exfoliator that is used for oil control and destroys acne causing bacteria. The presence of Vitamin E, K helps in a glowing skin that is a must needed for a dull, greasy face. Raw milk will take out excess oil from your face, tighten the pores, remove dead skin cells, also oats act as a good oil pullover from  the pores and honey protects the skin from acne and pimples.
