What is the best face mask for oily skin?

Oily skin is characterised by a shiny or greasy appearance, enlarged pores, and thick skin prone to congestion and breakouts.

The best face mask for oily skin does a few key things: absorbs excess oil, detoxifies by removing toxins and clears pores to prevent them from becoming clogged.

This is why clay and activated charcoal face masks are an excellent choice for oily skin.

Clay works to absorb excess oil from the skin’s surface to reduce shine and prevent blocked pores. It absorbs impurities, including acne-forming bacteria from deep within the pores too.

Charcoal also works to detoxify the skin by drawing out toxins and impurities.
