This is the best face mask for oily skin and blackheads. When it comes to oily skin, essential oils can be very helpful.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are naturally occurring aromatic compounds which are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants.
Undiluted, they can be very strong and even burn your skin, so always check the manufacturer’s instructions, to see how you need to apply it. Most oils need to be mixed with a carrier oil first and then applied to your skin.
If you’ve never used essentials oils before – it’s probably best to do a quick skin patch test before you use them. Just place a drop of the diluted oil on your inner arm/wrist area. If you feel your skin getting warm and irritated, immediately wash the area with a mild soap and water. It could mean that you have a sensitivity to that oil, and it is not recommended that you use it. If there is no irritation, it should be safe to apply.
Here is an amazing DIY face mask for oily skin which you can make using just a few essential oils:

Well, Bentonite clay is a wonderful thing. It draws out toxins, chemicals and even heavy metals. It is rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium and silica. It boosts the oxygen carrying capability of cells and it is very alkalizing. Bentonite clay is also said to unblock pores and shrink them, as well as helping to control the production of sebum.
So here is a wonderfully quick and easy homemade face mask for oily skin using Bentonite. It is especially good for helping combat acne prone skins.
JUST A SIDE NOTE:
Don’t use metal utensils or bowls when using Bentonite clay. It absorbs the metals and becomes less effective.
