The secret to a clean face is taking care of it daily. Your skin is the most delicate part of your body. If we have self-love and confidence, we would take good care of our skin. The majority of people want to feel good about their skin but many don’t know what to use in order to have good skin. One of the trickiest things to take care of is oily skin. It requires a lot of balancing in order to have clear skin. If you have oily skin you know that blackheads can be a pain in the butt which is why I try to find things as solutions for clean skin.

Here are 5 home remedies for treating your skin:


1. Honey and Sugar

Simply mix however much honey and sugar you think you’ll need in a small container. Once you have the honey and sugar mixed together, you can use it to create a mask. You apply the honey and sugar to your face and gently scrub with your index and middle finger in a circular motion. Afterwards, you remove the substance with warm water. You will notice a softer and fresher skin.
