Try a few other beauty mask recipes by mixing together two tablespoons of mayonnaise, one egg yolk, and one teaspoon of olive oil.

Combine two tablespoons of blueberries, two tablespoons of plain yogurt, one tablespoon of milk, and one teaspoon of honey in a bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are combined and apply to your face for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing off with cool water. If you have very oily skin or want even more benefits from these masks, try leaving them on longer than suggested or applying a thicker layer than you normally would.
Tomato Face Mask
Did you know that tomatoes are not only great for your health, but also for your skin? Tomato face masks are perfect for those with oily skin, as tomatoes help to control excess oil. Plus, they’re packed with antioxidants and vitamins A and C, which are great for your skin. Here’s how to make a tomato face mask:
1) Dice the tomato and add it to boiling water;
2) Let it boil for 10 minutes;
3) Strain the mixture through cheesecloth or strainer into a bowl;
4) Add milk or yogurt to the mixture until it reaches desired consistency;
5) Apply mixture on face in gentle circular motions, being careful not to get too close to eyes;
6) Allow mixture to set for 10 minutes before rinsing off with cool water.
Grape Juice And Lemon Face Mask
This mask is perfect for those with oily skin, as it helps to control excess sebum production. Simply mix together one cup of grape juice and the juice of half a lemon. Apply the mixture to your face using a cotton ball, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry. You should notice a difference in your skin’s texture immediately.
One of our favorite things about grape juice is its antioxidant content. Antioxidants are some of nature’s best skin-care products, and they can help reduce excess sebum production in your skin—the primary cause of breakouts. If you have oily skin and don’t want to make your own grape juice face mask, you can purchase it ready made at any health food store or online. Just be sure to look for a version that includes lemon juice, as that gives it a zingy kick that makes it perfect for oily skin. It should be added just before application so that it mixes in properly with the rest of ingredients.
Potato And Egg White Face Mask
This is a great face mask for those with oily skin. You will need one potato and one egg white. Start by grating the potato, then mix in the egg white. Apply the mixture to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and enjoy your refreshed skin.
Egg whites are a great natural way to remove oil from your skin because they can absorb large amounts of grease. This makes it easier for you to remove excess oil in your skin. Egg whites are also great at tightening pores and reducing acne, making them a healthy option for oily skin. Potato juice is also able to absorb large amounts of oil, making it a great natural method for removing oil from your face and preventing breakouts in oily areas like around your nose and cheeks. In addition, potato juice contains antioxidants that fight free radicals in our bodies, helping us fight against aging.
Aloe Vera And Green Tea Face Mask
Aloe vera and green tea are both great for oily skin. This mask combines the two to create a mask that will help to get rid of excess oil and sebum. Plus, it will also help to reduce inflammation and redness. To make this mask, simply combine one tablespoon of aloe vera gel with one teaspoon of green tea leaves. Apply the mixture to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
The aloe vera and green tea leaves in this mask will help to exfoliate your skin and reduce excess oil. This makes it perfect for using once or twice a week. Plus, it will also leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated. To make sure you can enjoy all of these benefits, store any leftover mixture in an airtight container in a refrigerator. Apply it to clean skin every day until you’ve used up all of it.
