If you have oily or dry skin that isn't very sensitive, do-it-yourself skin care remedies can be really good to try so you get to know whatsuits your skin type. Who wouldn't want to improve their appearance by shelling out just a minimal and not hitting the salon? Here are some methods you can try by yourself:

1. Are you someone with greasy/oily skin type, and can't deal with the same. Here's what you can do:

Take either the juice of a whole grapefruit, a lemon or an orange. Mix this with dry oatmeal and make it into a paste. Apply this to the oily areas of your skin. Let the paste dry, and then wash it off.

You can also use a mixture of lemon juice and water (in equal quantity) and pour it in a spray bottle. Spray this all over your face, whenever your skin feels greasy. What better, you can also carry this around while travelling, it refreshes the skin gently.

2. If you have extremely dry skin, here's what you can do:

Mash about half an avocado. Mix this with half a cup of honey and smear this mask onto the dry areas of your face. Let this mask stay on the face for about ten minutes and then wash it off with water.
