Our facial skin plays an important role in the overall appearance. Maintaining its beauty and health is one of the primary tasks for us. Having an oily skin can get really annoying at times. To get rid of this problem, it is essential to keep your skin clean.
Using a good cleanser regularly helps one get rid of the oil. You might be opting for expensive cleansers available in the market promising an oil free skin. However, you can use some homemade facial cleansers like the following instead, that are equally effective and don't contain any harsh chemicals.


Milk is an easy to use and effective facial cleanser for oily face. You can simply apply milk over your face using a cotton ball. It is best to use raw milk. Let it dry before you wash it off with lukewarm water. You can also make cubes of milk and rub them over your face to get a fresh look.
After this, pour milk in an ice tray and let it freeze to form milk cubes. You can also make a paste using milk and orange peel, and apply it over your face. Rub it in circular directions for a few minutes and then wash it off.


Squeeze half a lemon and use this fresh lemon juice as one of the best natural cleansers. The citric acid in lemon helps in cleansing the oil and dirt from the skin pores, and gives a bright look to your skin. It is also a natural bleaching agent. You can also use equal amount of lemon juice mixed with hot water.


Make a paste of 2 teaspoons honey, 2 teaspoons almond powder, and ½ teaspoon lemon juice. Apply it on your face, and rub in circular directions for 2 minutes. Now, wash off with lukewarm water to have a clean, oil-free, and dirt-free face. You can also make a paste of 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon egg white, and ½ teaspoon lemon juice and apply it over your facial skin. Wash off after 10 minutes to get a fresh look.


Yogurt is an effective ingredient for cleansing oily face. Apply it on your face and wash off after 10 minutes. You can also make a paste of yogurt and mashed strawberries and apply it over your facial skin. Wash it off with lukewarm water after 10 minutes to get a perfectly cleansed skin.

Fuller's Earth

Fuller's earth is very beneficial for skin, especially for cleansing oily skin. Make a paste using fuller's earth and rose water, and apply it over your face to rightly cleanse your skin. Wash off with cold water. You can also add a small mashed tomato to fuller's earth. Mix well and apply the paste on your face. Wash off with cold water once it dries off. Regular use of fuller's earth will help improve your skin texture as well.
Using one of the aforementioned cleansers twice daily is essential to get the desired results. A clean skin is the most important way to reduce the 'oily' factor. Moreover, a clean skin will ensure that the skin pores are not clogged which might result into acne. Finish by applying a toner and a good moisturizer.
