Combination and oily skins produce excess sebum that can lead to irregular skin texture, enlarged pores, and a shiny T-zone. Choose a face mask for oily skin that has cleansing and purifying properties and that are rich in absorbing ingredients that remove impurities, dead cells, and traces of pollution. According to our face mask guide, you can opt for an 'earth-based' mask to absorb excess sebum and close the pores. For example, try the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refine Pores
which is a great face mask for combination skin. It helps to unclog pores and reveal a polished, pore-minimized, and smooth complexion. The Exfoliate and Refine Pores Pure Clay Mask removes dead cells and excess oil from the skin and leaves skin feeling refined and smooth.
An ingredient that really helps with oily & combination skin is Salicylic Acid!
But, what is Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic acid gently exfoliates your skin and brightens it up for a youthful glow. BHA products are targeted for oily skin and also boost brightening. Using a face mask with salicylic acid can be a great way to incorporate BHA’s into your skincare. The uses of salicylic acid include helping you combat breakouts, oily skin and also boost the glow of your skin.
After using a clay mask, it is important to hydrate your skin to revive the moisture into your skin. You can use the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence
formulated with the goodness of salicylic acid. It penetrates up to 10 layers deep* into your skin making it brighter and adding glow to it! This salicylic acid product helps in adding a glow and hydration to your skin.
If you are in doubt about how to use salicylic acid, let us help you out. It is best to apply Crystal Micro Essence after using the Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refine Pores face mask, on a clean skin to prevent oily skin and keeping it hydrated at the same time.
Simply take a few drops of the Micro Essence on your palm, which contains this game-changing ingredient. Gently pat it into your skin. The lightweight texture of this product will help it sink into your skin easily and add an instant glow to your skin – and that’s the benefit of salicylic acid for you!
