No need to tolerate the oily sheen when you have these easy ways to get rid of that oily look.

Having an oily skin have many skin benefits as well, though! But for now, it is only bringing your radiant face down. These oily skin woes have often left us splurging on so many anti-shine and ‘matte-based’ products to get that enviable oil free look. But do any of them work? No, cause mother nature is way too stronger than the world of synthetics!

So let’s wage war against this ‘naturally’ oily skin of ours with something even natural-er! Here are quick and easy ways to get rid of oily face skin
1. Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner
Haven’t you bought your bottle of ACV yet? If not, then what are you waiting for. This magical tonic works in ways more than you can ever imagine. You just need to mix one portion of ACV with three portions of water. Soak a cotton ball and swipe this solution on your face like a toner. Do these two times daily for visible results.
2. Cornstarch to rescue
This might seem a bit weird to you. But this trick actually works. Some beauty vloggers even suggest people to use it as an oil absorbing powder. Mix 2-3 tbsp of cornstarch in some lukewarm water. Make a paste and apply it on your face. Leave it until it dries off. Rinse it off using lukewarm water. You will get the soft, clear and oil-free skin if you do this once daily.
3. Use a DIY Witch Hazel Toner
Witch hazel is a boon for oily skin people. You can get distilled witch hazel toner easily online or at any drug store. Soak a cotton pad in few drops of witch hazel and swipe it all over your face like you would do with any normal skin toner. It tightens up the pore thereby reducing the sebum production of the skin.
4. Use a face wash containing salicylic acid or alpha-hydroxy acids
These ingredients are said to be the best friend for those having acne problem with oily skin. If you’re having an acne-prone skin, then you can go for an OTC salicylic acid face wash or an alpha-hydroxy acid face wash. Both of these are excellent defoliants. They help skin to get rid of the dead cells from the face and reduce the oil production.
5. Use Papaya Face Mask daily
This is the easiest trick to load your skin with antioxidants and get rid of oily skin simultaneously. Mash a papaya pulp. You can add honey if you want. Apply this pulp after washing your face. Leave it as such for 5-10 minutes. Rinse it off with normal water. Do this daily for a radiant and younger looking skin.
