If you’re someone with oily skin, you’ll know the struggle of dealing with greasy skin, breakouts and a rebellious T-zone. Having an oily skin type is very tedious, mostly because it’s a mammoth task to figure out what works for your skin. Especially with a ton of contradicting information out there. As someone with an oily skin type, I can safely say that adding this step in my skincare routine really helped—mud masks. Here’s why they work:

  • They draw out the impurities and toxins from the skin.
  • They deep cleanse your pores and remove any excess sebum and dirt.
  • Mud masks are also very good exfoliators. They remove any dead skin cells and leave the skin fresh and firm.

I had my doubts first, I thought that they would be extremely drying and that they would irritate my skin. But after a lot of trial and error, I found these potent mud masks that not only helped me control my oily skin but also made the overall appearance of my skin much better. Here are the 5 mud masks that worked wonders:

1. Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment

Trust me when I say this, this supermud mask from Glamglow is an absolute blessing for oily and acne-prone skin. Just in a few uses, you’ll be able to see the difference it makes on your skin. It smoothens the texture of your skin and cleanses and shrinks your pores. After using this mask, your skin will be significantly less oily.

This mask contains bamboo charcoal from the foothills of the Himalayas and Japanese green tea leaves. These two superb ingredients help purify and detoxify the skin. The charcoal helps control the oil production of your skin and the bits of green tea leaves exfoliate your skin, hence leaving your skin smooth, clear and fresh.
