Purifying masks for oily skin

Categories : Skincare

This hot Manila weather makes oily skin worse! Try these purifying masks that clean out your pores and control oil. Oil’s well that ends well!

Skin Genie Exfoliating Detox Mask

P300, BeautyMNL

Is there anything this mask doesn’t do? It unclogs pores, tightens skin, helps control oil, and instantly brightens the skin. And it’s really cheap too! Beauty reviews say “this mask is just as good as the more expensive brands” and “leaves a really pretty pinkish glow.” Another fan says she’s gotten less blackheads and breakouts.

Apply this at night and wake up to radiant, softer skin!


Mario Badescu Cucumber Tonic Mask

P1005, Sephora Philippines  and Rustan’s 

This refreshing and soothing mask is one of the best ways to treat yourself after a long day! It’s a big beauty must if you’re using very aggressive acne or whitening treatments.  Your skin is extra sensitive because of the acids in your skincare routine. The cucumber and chamomile help calm your skin and reduce redness. If you want a pore-tightening mask but get a reaction from kaolin clay, this is a good alternative.


Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

P1657, Sephora Philippines

Bring life back to dull, tired skin! This detoxifying mask  draws out accumulated toxins from clogged pores to revitalize and invigorate the complexion. Antioxidants also help reverse the damage from exposure to pollution and the sun. Definitely a great mask for oily skin, especially if you’re always outdoors.


The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask

P1,195, The SM Store

Thisis made from bamboo charcoal, Japanese green tea leaves and tea tree oil. It’s perfect mask for oily skin. If you like The Body Shop’s tea tree oil (a cult favorite that’s been around for decades, and is still one of the best in the market) complete the regimen with this weekly  treat.

We also like how it’s free of parabens, silicons, paraffin, and mineral oil. There’s nothing in this mask that can irritate the skin!
