Sheet Masks for Oily and Blemished Skin

You have an oily T-Zone and tend to skin blemishes? Then, these three sheet masks are perfect for you!

Many women struggle with pimples and excess sebum production not only during adolescence. Hormonal imbalances like when stopping to take the pill for example, or before/after the pregnancy, are excreted through the skin. Detox treatments or a change in diet may also be a reason for strong reactions of the skin which is our largest detox organ. Our beauty expert Alexia of @dadiva has tested 70 facial masks and shows you her top 3 for oily and blemished skin.

 

Missha 3 Step Purifying Mask

The use of the mask consists of three easy steps: a delicate peeling first, to smooth the skin and to remove excess sebum. Second is a serum with witch hazel extract, to prevent harmful environmental influences and to refine the pores. The mask is applied after these two steps.

 

Tony Moly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet

Makgeolli is the Korean national drink made of fermented rice. And the rice wine which in the form of an extract is the benefit of this sheet mask. The extract contains vitamins, proteins and fibres that absorb excess sebum and skin blemishes and, at the same time, balance the pH-value.

Sephora Algae Face Mask 

Algae are the natural cleaning mechanism of the sea for they bind toxins. This sheet mask by Sephora is a detox skin treatment that refines the complexion visibly. Its effect lasts 2 to 3 days. Pores and blackheads get smaller, residues due to environmental influences come to the surface and get absorbed by the sheet. What remains is a detoxified skin that glows.
