Take tomato juice, cucumber juice and lemon juice; add a little calamine powder or gram flour to it. Make a paste and apply it on the skin. Wash off with lukewarm water when dries. It cleanses the skin and adds glow to it. Tomato has toning agents so it helps in toning the open pores caused with oily skin.

Take two spoonful of gram flour and make a paste with curd or yogurt. Yogurt has bleaching agents so clears the complexion. Add a pinch of turmeric powder to it, which helps in reducing the marks caused by acne and pimples. This pack can be used as a scrubber also. Scrub it off from the skin in adverse direction when half dries. It will remove the dead skin also.

Take a spoonful of calamine powder, one spoonful of sandalwood powder, add few drops of lemon juice to it. If you want, you can add cucumber juice to it. Make a paste and apply it on the skin. Wash it off when dries. It clears the complexion, diminishes the blemishes from the skin and reduces oil.

For oily skin ground oatmeal is a great option. Oatmeal will help take away the excess oils from your face. Oatmeal can be added to fruits, honey and eggs.

Making a natural treatment for Pimple or oily skin shouldn’t have to be a long, complex process. Sure, it can be fun to mix and heat up ingredients in the kitchen, but many people would rather just indulge in a ready-made facial treatment for a few minutes and then get on with the rest of their day, enjoying the look and feel of healthier skin.

Use an egg. Separate the yolk and white, then leave the egg white on your skin for 10 minutes or so. It helps drain some oil and helps with pimples. Rinse it off, then use the egg yolk and massage into your skin for a while to use as a moisturizer and rinse.

Egg Whites:-
High in vitamin A, egg whites can effectively dry out skin blemishes as well as tone and tighten up oily skin.
Whip one egg white until stiff and spread it on your skin. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with warm water. Do this twice a week.
Whip one egg white, add the juice from half a lemon and mix it well. Apply the mixture on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. This will tighten the skin and soak up excess oil.
