The 5 Best Face Masks For Oily Skin


Are you shining a little too bright these days? A weekly face mask can be a great way to prevent and treat blemishes and reduce the mid-day shine that often comes with oily skin. It’s also a great way to practice some self-care at home without breaking the bank. Adding a weekly face mask can do wonders for those with oily skin, but it’s important to know exactly which type of face mask works best to combat and reduce shine.

Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask

This peel-off mask has a cult following and rightly so! Skin is left looking luminous, pore-less, and oil-free after activated charcoal and montmorillonite clay clear out congested pores. Boscia’s products use willowherb, a calming botanical that alleviates inflammation and redness – in this case, irritation commonly associated with acne and blemishes. It’s been dermatologist tested and the brand’s research states that 100% of users reported their skin felt cleaner and less oily after use. Bottom line: If you have acne-prone or oily skin, you need this mask.

Pai Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask

Pai is an incredible clean beauty brand made for people with sensitive skin, by people with sensitive skin using ultra-pure certified organic ingredients. This deep cleansing mask has natural anti-bacterial properties to help de-grease skin and heal blemishes. Copaiba – a key ingredient from the Amazon – helps draw out impurities and reduce future breakouts while fruit Alpha Hydroxy Acids brighten and smooth skin by removing dead skin cells. It’s perfect for combination or oily skin that is also sensitive, managing to deep clean without irritation. Plus it comes with a reusable muslin cloth to use with your mask!

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

This might be one of the most affordable options if you’re looking for a mask that doesn’t break the bank. The mask is made with bentonite clay from Death Valley, California, where it is sun-dried for up to six months. You can use it anywhere on your face or body for deep pore cleansing, oil reduction, and acne and other blemish treatment. It’s also 100% natural, and free of fragrance, additives, and animal products.

Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask

Slick skin issues? This quick mask is the perfect fix. Zinc oxide and sulfur soak up excess oil, remove dead skin cells, and clean out clogged pores while another key ingredient, camphor, helps calm skin. Origins’ mission is to “create safe, high-performance products that deliver visible results powered by nature and proven by science” while caring for both people and the planet.

GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment

This clarifying mask helps exfoliate the skin, using activated charcoal to attract and extract dirt, toxins, impurities, and debris from pores. The formula’s “Super Six Acid Blend” – including lactic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, mandelic acid, tartaric acid, and pyruvic acid – unclogs pores and minimizes their appearance. Kaolin clay helps treat breakouts caused by oily skin, extracting impurities and absorbing oil without causing inflammation. Together, these ingredients leave skin visibly clearer and calmer, making this a great face mask for oily skin.
