1. Clay or Mud Masks
These are the deep cleansing masks that are specially meant for oily skin. If you have a chronic problem of blackheads and frequent breakouts, then we suggest that you use a clay mask once or twice a week. These masks absorb the excess oil from the face and clean the pores deeply. This mask is essential for detoxifying your skin from dirt, grime, pollutants, etc.
