Natural facemasks for oily skin

Natural facemasks for oily skin

If you have oily skin, look on the bright side, oily skin tends to age better and develop fewer wrinkles than dry or normal skin.

But it does require more attention, since you need to keep cleansing those over productive pores. Your sebaceous glands are pumping out an overabundance of sebum, the waxy substance that protects your skin. When there’s too much, skin looks oily, and that overabundance of sebum may contribute to acne.
