There are many useful recipes for making face masks designed to help treat oily, pimpled skin, such as using a mixture of a tablespoon of cucumber juice, an egg white, a few drops of lemon juice and a teaspoon of clay. These ingredients must be mixed until they become a smooth, evenly textured paste that can then be applied to the skin.
The paste must be applied forcefully, avoiding the eye areas. Once this is done, the paste must be left on for around 10 to 20 minutes. To remove the face mask, the face should be rinsed thoroughly with warm water. This type of face mask should be applied once a week to help treat oily skin. It should also be applied at night as well because the lemon juice is known to make skin more sensitive to direct sunlight.
Another useful face mask recipe for oily skin uses an apricot with a tablespoon of yogurt and a half a teaspoon of clay. The apricot should be peeled and then put through a blender. The yogurt and clay can then be added and mixed together until the ingredients combine into a paste. This mask should then be applied, avoiding the eye area, for around 20 minutes up to once or twice a week. This recipe helps clean oily skin, treat acne breakouts and keep the skin nourished and healthy.
