10 Best Face Masks for Oily Skin, According to Dermatologists
There’s the Instagram “glow,” and then there’s real-life glow. If you’ve got oily skin, you’re likely reaching for blotting sheets and mattifying powders to contain regular breakouts versus highlighters and creams.
While it’s normal for these sebaceous glands to produce a small amount of oil for a healthy moisture barrier, they’re working overtime if you’re oily. “Signals can be generated in times of stress or from hormonal fluctuations,” says Rachel Nazarian, M.D., board-certified dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group and assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.
Whatever the case, a good face mask can help. “Face masks can help treat and decrease oily skin by absorbing and cleansing the oils from our skin’s surface,” Dr. Nazarian says. “Or by improving the baseline level of moisture and hydration of our skin” so that it doesn’t feel the need to overproduce.
