Facial Mask Recipes For Oily Skin


Facial Mask Recipes For Oily Skin

Oily skin is quite troublesome when it comes to taking proper care of it and dealing with it on everyday basis. I remember my mom had oily skin and how she washed her face and cleansed it after every 2-3 hours to get rid of the shiny face due to excess oil production. Oily skin also has visible large skin pores and it becomes yet another thing to take care of. I have a normal skin throughout the winters but as the summers approach and temperature tends rise my face abnormally becomes oily and I long for the shine-free face I have throughout the year.

Importance of face masks

Well, since summers are like a 3-4 months affair I do make sure to engage in few face mask recipes every now and then to make sure that my skin remains clean and free from oil.

I would gladly be happy to share some facial mask recipes with you all which are suitable for all those oily skin beauties!

Since oily skin needs less of moisturization and more of the oil cleansing kind of face masks, I mostly prefer to use powder based face masks during the summers when my skin is oily.
