I have oily skin both in the summer and the winter. Because of this, I have a lot of problems with acne, specifically blackheads. While I wash my skin daily, it is not helping clear the acne up. Does anyone have any home remedies to help with this problem?

I've had oily skin my whole life, though mine is worse in the summer. I regularly visit a restroom and splash water on my face (which I then blot dry with a towel). Sometimes, instead of splashing water on my face, I wet a paper towel in the sink and gently rub that over my face to wet it, and then I blot it dry with another towel.

I do this several times throughout the day, whenever I feel as though my face is getting a little shiny.


I have been trying to find a solution to this problem since ages. I have particularly very oily scalp and forehead. One home remedy that has worked for me since some time now is CURD & lemon juice. I know sounds so simple.

I apply curd with or without lemon juice for 10-15 minutes before I take a shower. Once the curd dries out it takes away complete oil from my scalp and leaves a very soothing effect.
