FRUIT MASSAGE FOR OILY SKIN- DIY

                       Oily skin needs regular cleansing and care. Most massage creams are oil based and make the oilier. So it is difficult to find a suitable massage cream for oily skin. So thought I, why not prepare a natural and fruity massage cream/lotion at home itself. And also we (1s with oily skin) cannot massage while we have a breakout. We have to wait patiently for all the pimples/acne to go and only then can we go for a massage. I can swear by a facial massage because its so relaxing and good for the skin. But do take caution not to massage often because it would make the skin oilier. So with the correct massage cream and right frequency you will benefit from a facial massage even if you have oily skin.

                    Coming to the massage cream, take a tbspn of pureed cucumber, 1 tspn orange juice, 1 drop peppermint oil and 1/4th tspn honey and mix very well. Cucumber is good for oily skin we all know that, it cuts off that dull dull; honey is a powerful moisturiser; orange juice is good for reducing oiliness and contains Vitamin C and Peppermint oil is good for pimples.

                    Now massage your face, neck and nape with this massage cream for 10-15 mins. Wash off and apply a suitable moisturiser. Or you can go a step ahead and put on a face pack. This has been in my skin care routine for quite a while now and I have been much benefited from it. Hope the 1s with oily skin like it and benefit from this recipe. Thanks girls :D

indeed oily skin needs more care and attention because the greasy oil keeps coming back from time to time. Leaving your skin oily and greasy and can also be the cause of dirt and pimples.
