My skin is oily. How can I get clear skin?

     Oily skin can be a real issue for some people. The redness and irritation from acne issues can be uncomfortable at times. Leaving you with a lower self esteem and becoming self conscience in social settings. Natural soaps can be beneficial for oily skin, but it depends on the specific ingredients used in the soap. Some natural ingredients that can help control oil production and reduce the appearance of oily skin include some of the following ingredients:

Tea tree oil: This essential oil has antibacterial properties that can help reduce the number of acne-causing bacteria on the skin.


Neem: Neem has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that can help reduce the appearance of oily skin.

Charcoal: Activated charcoal can help draw impurities and excess oil from the skin.

Aloe vera: Aloe vera can help soothe irritated skin and has a light, non-greasy texture.

Clay: Clay masks can absorb excess oil and unclog pores.

         It's important to make sure that the soap is free of any added oils or heavy moisturizers, as these can contribute to oily skin. It's also important to do a patch test before using any new product on your face. If you are not sure about the ingredients, it's better to consult a dermatologist before using it.It's also important to remember that soap alone may not be enough to completely clear oily skin and it should be combined with a good skincare routine. Skincare begins in the shower. Or bath. Your soap should nourish, not irritate, your skin.
