A weekly face mask can help to revive oily skin. Use one that is clay or mud-based as these materials help to draw out and absorb the oil in your skin. Masks containing natural ingredients --- such as oatmeal, lemon or cucumber --- are also great for oily skin types and can help to dry the skin just a little. The key to controlling oily skin is to dry it out just enough, without overdoing it and pushing your skin into the dry skin category. Oily skin is a common problem between both men and women, so many companies that specialize in treatment for oily skin offer a cache of products that cater to this skin type.
