Beat The Grease - Sheet Masks For Oily Skin
Oily skin is caused by an overactive sebaceous gland that produces excess sebum. Even though sebum protects and moisturises your skin and is essential to maintain the overall health of your skin, excess sebum on your face can make you look like a shiny disco ball. And that’s not all, all the extra oil on your face easily traps dirt and impurities and clogs your pores. This, in turn, causes breakouts, making oily skin extremely prone to acne.
It is not easy to manage oily skin, especially oily skin that is also acne-prone. But by making just a few changes to your skincare routine, you can keep the excess oil at bay. If you have already tried all the clay face masks and toners for oily skin out there and nothing seems to control your oil, maybe it is time you try a sheet mask!
When it comes to selecting a sheet mask, the process of finding one that can address your oily skin woes might seem difficult at first. It is a common misconception that since a sheet mask primarily hydrates and moisturizes your skin, it is only beneficial for people with normal to dry skin. But that’s not true at all! Sheet masks that are designed to clear your clogged pores and minimize their appearance, work great for oily skin. Some sheet masks are formulated with ingredients that help control the excess oil production and can help mattify your face. Use these sheet masks two to three times a week and you will notice a visible transformation in your skin.
Always apply your sheet mask to a clean face. People with oily skin tend to over-wash their face as they believe this will help them keep the excess sebum in check. Washing your face excessively will, in fact, strip all the natural oil and moisture from your skin, sending your sebaceous gland into overdrive. This will cause your glands to produce even more oil to compensate. So remember to only wash your face two or three times a day at most. Once your face is all nice and clean, it is time to apply your sheet mask. You can start your week with a detoxifying sheet mask like the Pure Charcoal Black Serum Sheet Mask by Garnier. The charcoal in the sheet mask draws out all the impurities from your pores and helps unclog them. This helps reduce the size of your pores and also detoxifies your skin.
Now that your pores are unclogged and ready to absorb all the goodness from another sheet mask, beat your mid-weak blues by treating your skin to the purifying Garnier Hydra Bomb Green Tea Serum Sheet Mask. This serum sheet mask is great for oily and acne prone skin as green tea extracts in the sheet mask help control and reduce the oiliness in your skin. In just 15 minutes, your skin feels fresh and hydrated with a natural matte finish and none of the oiliness from before!
Using multiple sheet masks during the week is a great way to let your skin benefit from the different properties of each sheet mask. Taking care of oily and acne-prone skin is challenging, but with the right products, you can help control the excess shine on your face and reduce breakouts.
