Oily skin is a common problem for women. It can cause breakouts, clogged pores, and even acne. If you have oily skin, you might want to consider using a mask to lighten your complexion.
Masks are a popular way to treat oily skin because they can remove excess oil without drying out the skin. They also contain ingredients that can help reduce redness and inflammation.
Here are some masks to try if you have oily skin.
1. Honey Mask
Honey has natural antibacterial properties which make it an effective treatment for pimples. This honey mask will cleanse your face while soothing irritated skin. Mix one tablespoon of raw organic honey with two tablespoons of water in a bowl or jar. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it undisturbed for about 15 minutes before rinsing off thoroughly. You may repeat this process once every week.
2. Egg White Mask Egg whites are rich in protein and vitamin B-12. These nutrients work together to keep your skin healthy by keeping it hydrated. To prepare this egg white mask, mix three eggs into a blender along with 1/4 cup of milk. Blend until smooth. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the blended mixture and blend again. Spread this paste onto your face and let it dry completely. Rinse well after 10 minutes. Repeat twice weekly as needed.
3. Banana Mask Bananas are packed full of vitamins A, C, E, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, phosphorus, calcium, sodium, chloride, and fiber. All these minerals play important roles in maintaining good health. The banana peel contains enzymes that promote cell renewal and prevent premature aging. For best results use ripe bananas instead of unripe ones. Mash them up and apply them directly to your face. Leave it alone for 20 minutes then rinse away. Do not wash your face immediately afterward; allow it to air dry naturally. Use this mask at least 3 times per month.
4. Milk Mask
Milk is very hydrating and moisturizing. It helps soften rough patches on your skin caused by sun damage. Combine equal parts of whole milk and yogurt in a small container. Stir gently so that no lumps form. Let sit overnight. In the morning, strain through cheesecloth or paper towels. Store leftover liquid in the refrigerator. When ready to use, stir the strained mixture back into its original state. Gently massage your entire body including your face. Wash off when done.
5. Almond Oil Mask
Almonds are high in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds. Because almonds are rich in omega-6 fats, they’re great for treating sensitive skin. Try mixing almond oil with rosewater to create a nourishing facial scrub.
