When you have oily skin, you know that it can be challenging to maintain the appearance of a shine-free complexion. In fact, you’ve likely experienced the frustration of your makeup sliding around your face or your skin looking greasy by midday if you have oily skin. So, what’s a girl to do? Well, you may want to consider switching up the skin care products you use in your skin care routine. When you have oily skin, looking for skin care products that are mattifying, such as a facial cleanser, face moisturizer, and face mask, can help minimize the appearance of excess shine. Today, we’re here to talk to you about face masks for oily skin in particular. Keep reading to learn about our best face mask for oily skin and how to update your skin care routine for oily skin.
Oily skin deserves special care. That’s because day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask is formulated with three types of clay (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava) and enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract. It helps draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine.
Using our face mask for oily skin is simple—very simple. Just apply an even layer of our face mask to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use three times a week for best results. (Get all the details on our charcoal mask by reading our article, Our Best Charcoal Mask: It’s Time to Brighten Up!)
How you care for oily skin is definitely important. From cleansing to moisturizing to masking, the below skin care routine for oily skin is easy to follow!
Step 1: Wash your skin morning and night. It’s important to cleanse your oily skin when you wake up and before you go to bed. As far as your nighttime skin care routine goes, it’s a skin care no-no to snooze in your makeup. That’s because it can mix with the dirt and oils that have built up on the surface of your complexion, and that can lead to clogged pores—which can lead to breakouts and blackheads. Reach for a clay-to-mousse facial cleanser that can help mattify the appearance of your skin, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify and Mattify Cleanser. To use, squeeze a nickel-sized dollop of the facial cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Massage it onto your skin, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Step 2: Apply moisturizer post-cleansing. Nope, you shouldn’t skip moisturizer if you have oily skin—we’re serious! For normal and oily skin types, external factors like pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production—resulting in an overly shiny-looking complexion. So, what kind of moisturizer should you use if you have oily skin then? Consider reaching for a water-based moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, which is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water for long-lasting hydration and has a matte finish.
Step 3: Use a face mask three times a week. Sometimes, oily skin needs a little extra attention, and that’s where a face mask can come in handy. Plus, isn’t it totally relaxing to sit back and chill while a face mask does its work? Now that you know all about our best face mask for oily skin, the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, add it to your skin care routine three times a week for best results.
