Is an Oil Control Mask Right for You?

Would you like to know if an oil control mask is a good fit for you?   Because there are so many masks on the market, it can be hard to know which is best for your skin type.  So, let’s explore this version and see if it’s good for you.

Pro Tip:  You don’t have to use the mask on your entire face.

The first thing to know about using any mask, is that you don’t have to use it on your entire face.  For example, I have combination skin (some dry, some normal, and some oily).  So for me, I only use an oil control mask where I need it, which is typically in the T-Zone area.

The T-Zone is the part of your face that is made up of the forehead, nose, chin, and area circling the mouth.   And, because it shaped like the letter T, it is called the T-Zone.  Most times, the T-Zone is oiler than the rest of the face because it has a higher amount of oil glands.  Thefore, most people tend to get more oily in this area.


So, how do you know if it’s right for you?   If you have oily spots of your face, you could use an oil control mask.  Remember, you don’t have to use it all over your face, thus giving you the treatment only where you need it.  An oil control mask will deliver healthier-looking skin with less oil, smaller-looking pores, diminished appearance of redness, and fewer imperfections.

Easy tips for applying a mask:

  1. Cleanse skin. With Applicator or fingertips, apply a thin layer evenly all over face, careful to avoid the eye area.
  2. Let mask remain on skin for five to seven minutes.
  3. Remove with warm water.
  4. Follow with normal moisturizing routine.
*Please note, these are general application tips.  Your specific mask may have different instructions.  Follow the directions for your mask.*

Using an oil control mask is easy and can be done 1 – 3 times per week, depending on your skin.  Be sure to read all instructions for your particular mask, and only use it on the area where it’s needed.
