The main troubles of oily skin are increased fat content, due to which pores are clogged and acne and blackheads appear. Such skin needs to be well cleaned, but not always regular washing will be able to cope with this. Cosmetic clay masks will come to the rescue.
1. Masks made of clay with oils
No need to be intimidated by the oil in the composition. If you choose the right cosmetic oil, the benefits of it will be much greater than harm.
Add a quarter of a teaspoon of grape seed oil to a teaspoon of clay powder, mix, dilute with water until the consistency of thick sour cream.
The mask should be applied immediately to the face and neck along the massage lines and left to dry.
After the mask is dry, you may notice that its entire surface is covered with strange dots - fear not, this is how the mask pulls impurities out of the pores.
You can wash off the mask with a special sponge with warm water. After that, apply a moisturizer - cosmetic clay masks dry the skin.
2. Clay masks with natural juice
In place of the oil, you can add a little lemon juice or aloe juice to the clay. Lemon will enhance the cleansing effect of the mask and whiten the skin, while aloe juice will moisturize and disinfect.
Rinse off such a mask with warm water. Don't forget the cream. Dehydrated skin is more difficult to deal with than oily skin.
3. Clay masks with other cosmetics
If you add a little coarse salt or ground coffee to the clay, and then dilute the dry mass with water to a state of thin sour cream, you will get a scrub mask. First, gently massage your face and then leave the mask on your face until it dries.
If desired, you can dilute the clay not with water, but with tonic or lotion. Look for products that are alcohol-free - oily skin is prone to dehydration just like other skin types.
