Extra oil accumulated on your face will ultimately ruin all your beauty. This is what I made understand in early 20â€™s of my life when I needed to visit a dermatologist for my bad skin condition. So nostalgic were the days when I had to deal with this problem. I never realized the value of a healthy and oil free skin in true sense since my doctor explained it to me and how it can result in more serious health concerns. That day I came to know that women are more prone to oily skin issues during pregnancy, menopause, menstrual cycles, and also when they take birth control pills.
Oil produced from human body keeps the skin healthy but its overdose can have drastic effects. But in surplus amount, the same oil may lead to blackheads, blemishes, blind pimples and skin acne etc. A lot many young girls and even boys are its victims today and number is ever increasing. Key reasons are eating junk food, living in a polluted environment and not giving enough time to skin care etc.

All these ways are equally applicable to oily skin care but why to spend extra cash when you can use natural ingredients present in your kitchen.
