Oily skin is the most common type of complexion. Masks for this type of skin can be done at home, from natural ingredients that have an astringent effect, absorb the excess sebum, and also regulate sebum secretion. You just need to know which ones are right for you. So, if you constantly apply masks and specific care products, you can successfully control the unpleasant shine of the face. Here are the best oily skin masks you need to try!

homemade face masks

Egg White Mask

Egg White is indicated for oily skin as it tightens the skin and reduces the pores. Leave the skin firm, beautiful and healthy. To prepare the mask you need an egg and a few drops of lemon juice. Separate the yolk from the whites. Put the whites in a bowl and add a few drops of lemon juice. Mix well, apply on face and wait for action for 15-20 minutes. When the mask has hardened, rinse with warm water.

Plums and yogurt mask

Plums contain antioxidants that are often used in oily skin products. Antioxidants fight free radicals, increase the elasticity of the skin and improve its appearance and texture. For this mask, you need two plums, a yogurt, sweet almond oil (fights against acne, another problem of oily skin). You smash the plums and mix them with the other ingredients. Apply on the face and wait for about 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Oatmeal flakes for oily skin

Oatmeal flakes exfoliate the skin, absorbs excess oil, and help you get a smooth skin. Honey is antibacterial, cleans pores and removes dead cells. For this mask, you need half boiled apple, one tablespoon of honey and two tablespoons of oatmeal. Mix well all the ingredients, apply on the face and wait for action for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

Banana mask for oily skin

Banana eliminates impurities and helps the skin to be smoother. To prepare this mask you need a banana, two tablespoons of honey, an orange or a lemon. Put the banana in a bowl and add honey and juice from a lemon or an orange. Apply the mask on the face and let it act for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Clay Oil Clay Mask

Clay is used in cosmetics for both body treatments and face treatments. Clay is very good for oily skin because it has excellent cleaning, purification and toning properties. The clay mask is prepared as follows: In 200 ml of water put two tablespoons of clay powder. Mix well and apply on face. Let the mask act for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. It is recommended to repeat the procedure once every 2-3 days to see results on a fatty skin.

Cucumber mask for oily skin

Cucumber is ideal for the oily or mixed skin. It has a strong astringent effect and cleans effectively. For the mask, you need half a cucumber, an egg white, a spoon of lemon juice, a teaspoon of mint. Mix all the ingredients in a blender, then apply the mask to the face and let it work for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and finally with cold water. Oily skin looks are prone to pimples and are unpleasant to touch.
