Face masks for oily, greasy skin


These masks are very tingly and drying and hence suitable only for greasy and oily skin. Avoid these on dry skins, though.

Peppermint mask

Ingredients:
1/4th teaspoon peppermint extract
1 egg white
1 teaspoon multani mitti (fuller’s earth)

Method:
Mix the egg white and multani mitti together into a paste and add the peppermint extract. Apply it to the face and wash off after 15 minutes. This mask tightens and stimulates the skin.

 
Citrus mask

Ingredients:
1/4th grapefruit
juice of 1/4th lemon
1/4th apple (cored)
1 egg-white
10 seedless grapes

Method:
Mix the ingredients in a blender. Apply on your face and leave for 15 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water. Grapefruit opens clogged pores and lemon is an excellent astringent and cleanser, while egg-whites tighten the skin.

    Oily skin is like a bratty child, it needs constant attention. First, if you feel your makeup is causing the build up then start by making sure you're using oil free makeup. Neutrogena has a lot of great products for this, I personaly opt to use bare essentials because it's light and airy and I don't like the feeling of wearing makeup. Second, if you don't already, use oil controling products as a part of your beauty regimen. Use an oil control cleanser, followed by a toner, and then lastly by your favorite oil free moisturizer. I like Clinique's Dratmatically Different moisturizer, it's perfect for oily skin. Next, you should be washing your face, at least twice a day (AM and PM) and after workouts to keep your pores clean and shine free. Lastly, keep oil blotting sheets in your purse at all times. It's way more effective blotting your face with these sheets than trying to cover up the shine wtih more makeup/power (which can actually make it worse.) Hope this helps! Good luck!

  4. oat meal reduces the oil problem and since its all natural it will probably be good...
    The only facial mask I use is st. ives mineral clay(the blue one)... Kaolin clay is the best for sensitive skin and the general formulation of the product suits all skin types...

    The linoleic acid in primrose oil is one of the most effective treatments for skin disorders including oily skin. Make sure you get at least 500mg of primrose oil every day, and you’ll go a long way in eliminating oily skin.

    After washing your face with warm water and drying it wait a couple of seconds and rinse your face again with COLD water. This will close the pores and should reduce the oil output.

    Only use this face mask if your skin responds well to it. Don't use the face mask if you find your skin is too dry after or you have an allergic reaction.

    Use a good medicated wash as oily skins sometimes develop acne.Follow it up with a scrub thrice a week. Keep your skin protected with a layer of sunblock and Shabase.Apply a little Shaglow as a dail moisturizer For a home remedy you use a scrub of oatmeal and skimmed milk as a srub. Thrice a week use a pack of one egg white a few drops of lemon and mint juice

    Mash half a banana with a fork, mix and add 1 tsp of honey, lemon juice, cut one capsule of vitamin A, then apply it for 20 minutes. This mask clean pores, heals the skin. Mask wash off with warm water, better is to use broth with calendula, sage.
