Sandalwood and Fuller’s Earth Face pack for Oily skin

Overactive Sebaceous glands makes skin oily. Oily skin asks for a lot more care and attention as compared with other skin types as it tends to get skin problems like acne, blemishes, comedones like whiteheads and blackheads which are directly or indirectly related to over secretion of oils by those glands.

Skin oil is not bad at all as it is produced in order to keep the skin hydrated and protects its outer layer but the problem arises when that oil gets trapped in the pores and pores gets blocked followed by bacterial infection that can cause the skin problems.

It becomes very important to keep oily skin clean. There are a lot of products available in the market from foaming face wash to face packs that can help cleaning oily skin.
You can easily make oil absorbing Clay pack for oily skin very easily at home, without spending much. I am taking about a sandalwood and Fuller’s earth face pack.
For that either you can take a sandalwood and make a paste out of it by rubbing it on a stone used specially for that purpose or if you don’t have one, You can buy sandalwood powder and some Fuller’s earth which is also known as Multani Mitti commonly here.

You have to make a paste out of the two in either Rose water or just plain water in the ration that sandal wood should be a bit less than the clay.

Mix it will and apply directly on the face. Wait for it to get completely dry which will take 10-15 minutes. Rinse your face with plain water and pat dry.

Fuller’s earth is very easily available and is cheap too. It absorbs all the oil from the skin and cleans the pores as well but when over absorption of oil happens then our skin tends to produce more oil to combat the loss, for that sandalwood is used that hydrates the skin and also makes sure that the clay should not dry out the skin and should not suck even the essential amount of oil present on the skin.

Sandalwood also soothes and calms the irritated and acne prone skin, an added bonus of this wonderful product.
If you have oily skin, do give it a try!
