Oily skin accumulates dirt and dead cells that clog pores. The appearances of wide, dark pores paired with oily skin are blackheads. Oily skin must be kept clean and treated with a mask once a week. Grapefruit juice is a natural astringent. The citric acid found in grapefruits cuts oil and tightens pores. Grapefruit mixed with gelatin purges the skin of impurities and allows pores to close. When used on a regular basis, it clears and refines skin.
