Best mask for oily skin

As much as i love living in karachi,I HATE the hot weather which continues for the better part of the year.Its a nightmare if you have oily combo skin like mine.My T zone starts resembling the oil fields in middle east :( Pimples, uneven skin tone, you name it,i get it.
Over the years i have tried a lot of stuff (& spent a bundle of money which could have been used for something more constructive).This mask works the best for my skin.You 'll need
Saeed Ghani ubtan:1tsp

Saeed Ghani Sandal powder:1tsp

Rose water spray
Add it all together.Mix well.

Wash your face with face wash/cleanser (whatever you prefer).Apply the mask all over face.Let it dry.Now wash it off with water , dry you face and apply an oil free moisturizer.
I apply this mask every second day.It keeps the oil under control.Gives my skin a hydrated and soft texture.
For people who have excessively oily skin , a tea spoon of "Saeed Ghani multani mutti" can also be added. Milk can be replaced with rose water as well.
As always, this is what works for me.I am not an expert on oily skin. Also people with serious skin conditions  should not use any thing other than medication prescribed by a dermatologist :)
Till next time......................
