If you have oily skin, there is a good chance that you are always looking for ways to reduce the shiny, oily look. However, this skin type is very common and has several advantages, such as the fact that it ages very well and wrinkles take longer to appear. What’s more, oily skin is often stronger and more ‘robust’. However, its appearance doesn’t always work in its favour, and the oil can stick to dead skin cells, which your skin could well do without. 

To fight against excess oil, people with oily skin can follow several simple steps, such as thorough cleaning (without scrubbing to aggressively), and avoiding mass produced products that contain perfumes. Don’t forget to hydrate with creams that are adapted to your skin type, and don’t hesitate to exfoliate from time to time (but not every day). For the rest, try out this effective mask which fights against excess oils and the greasy appearance of oily skin.

What you need:

  • 1 dessertspoon of flour
  • 1 dessertspoon of honey
  • 1 egg yolk or a dessertspoon of sweet almond oil

Steps:

1) Mix all of the ingredients in a container.

2) Apply the mask to your face with clean hands or a clean brush.

3) Leave it to work for 10 to 15 minutes and rinse it off with cold water.
