Face Mask for Oily Skin

face mask for oily skin

Yogurt and Strawberry Mask

Strawberries and yogurt are not just for eating but this combination also works for relieving oily skin because strawberries contain salicylic acid and this acid works well in treating acne that is caused by excess oil production in the skin. Yogurt has strong moisturizing qualities and it reduces aging signs. If you want to lighten the brown spots on the face you can add lemon juice to your facial mask.

Cucumber and Lemon Mask

You can combine baking powder, cucumber juice and lemon juice to create a facial mask because cucumber juice opens the skin’s pores and this means there is less dirt and oil to clog the pores, leading to better looking and refreshed skin. Lemon juice has a drying effect for the skin’s pores and with this facial mask your skin will be less oily.

Oatmeal and Honey Mask

Oatmeal serves as an exfoliator for your skin and this removes all dead skin cells and excess oil and bacteria from the skin’s pores. Honey has antibacterial qualities so this is why it is often used in facial masks.

Facial Mask With Baking Soda

Baking soda serves as an astringent that dries the skin’s pores and this is why it is recommended for those with very oily skin should combine a few teaspoons of baking soda, lemon juice and water and then apply the mask to your face. Let the mixture sit for fifteen minutes before rinsing it off.

Carrot Juice and Baking Powder 

Carrot juice contains vitamin A and this vitamin is important in repairing the skin. Combine carrot juice with baking powder and then apply to your face. After 20 minutes you want to rinse the mixture off your face.


Exfoliation is essential in caring for the skin because it removes dead skin cells so that you will have brighter and cleaner skin for weeks to come. These facial masks can be created with items in your pantry and this is what makes the facial masks inexpensive to make. Before you use a certain remedy for oily skin you should research it and talk with your dermatologist to see if it would work for you. Use the facial mask at least two to three times a week and after using the facial mask you should put on a moisturizer to keep the moisture in your skin.
