5 Ayurvedic Fuller’s Earth Face Packs For Oily Skin

Oily skin is sometimes both a blessing and a curse. While on one hand you’ll age slower and your skin won’t become flaky, oily skin also means you break out far more often. Plus, having your face resemble a shiny disco ball isn’t the best look for anyone. Fuller’s Earth is one of the best weapons you can have against oily skin. It absorbs excess oil from the skin, but it won’t dry it out completely. Fuller’s Earth also lightens acne scars, which many people who have oily skin also suffer from. Here are five face packs you can make with Fuller’s Earth that will help re-balance your skin.
