If you have an oily skin then the abundant sebaceous glands on your face must be driving you nuts! But the excess sebaceous glands are not really that bad. They are also a blessing in disguise because the oils they produce prevent your skin from drying and keep the skin aglow and young. Common problems with oily skin are pimples, blemishes, open pores, blackheads and whiteheads. At an early stage the problem is easier to control but at an advanced stage consulting a dermatologist is a better idea. What helps the most in this condition is a well-defined cleansing regimen. Washing your face regularly and drinking eight glasses of water daily prevents oil from building up and rids your nightmarish skin ailments. And pampering your skin on weekends with homemade facials works wonders in taming the sebum flow. Homemade facials are easy to make, are cheap and, the best part, are completely natural. Browse through the article to get a few recipes for facials intended for an oily skin.
