Oily skin that tends to shine needs gentle care: anything else just aggravates it.
What oily skin needs:
A purifying, strengthening mask. This will brighten and revive skin, stop excess sebum production, prevent blackheads from forming, tighten your pores and get rid of unsightly shine.
What you need:
A pot of Greek honey
200ml rosewater (this has astringent proprties)
5 drops of essential lavender oil (this regulates sebum)
Mix 3 tbsp honey with 1 tbsp rosewater and 6 drops of essential lavender oil. Apply in a thick layer over the face, paying particular attention to the T-zone (chin, nose and forehead). Leave for 15 minutes. Massage gently, making small movements with your fingertips. Rinse.
Use this mask once a week on clean, dry skin.
