If you grapple with oily skin on the reg, adding a satiating face pack to your skincare mix is integral. Whipped to perfection, this cream-like formulation deep cleanses the pores and curbs sebum production while granting the skin a healthy glow. Often the perfect alternative to a salon treatment, a face pack also plays a pivotal role in perking up your appearance! That’s right – albeit it only sits on the face for anywhere between 15 to 20 minutes. A potent face pack percolates deep into the dermis to remove any traces of dullness, leaving the skin refreshed and rejuvenated.

If you have exceptionally greasy skin, here are the 10 best face packs for your consideration. Gentle like the natural brews that still reign supreme in many Indian households, these formulations contain humble yet efficacious kitchen/botanical ingredients. But before you whip out this jar of creamy perfection, here are some pointers you should bear in mind when buying a face mask.

Things To Consider Before Buying

1. Type:

Considering your skin type is key when picking a face mask. Water-based gel masks are ideal for people with oily skin, and they should avoid creamy ones that have oils and emollients. Gel masks can also soothe sun-damaged skin. Clay masks are also a good choice as they tighten the pores and remove excess oil. Sheet masks are great if you want a quick boost of hydration.

2. Ingredients:

The ingredients list will give you the best look at what a face mask can accomplish. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid that are hydrating will be best for people with oily skin, while people with pigmentation concerns can try brightening ingredients like Vitamin C. If you also have sensitive skin, avoid face masks with fragrances.

3. Time:

While some masks need to be left on for 3-5 minutes and basically act like moisturisers, some others require you to prep your skin with cleansers or scrubs and then leave it on for a while. It is best to consider how long you will have to apply masks and make your decision based on your preferences.

4. Check for allergens:

Like most skincare products, masks have a combination of oils and active ingredients for the ultimate benefits. It is important to check all these ingredients and ensure they don’t contain allergens. It is also recommended to do a patch test before a new product.

How To Apply Face Pack

1. Cleanse Your Skin Meticulously: Before you slather the pack onto your skin, make sure it’s squeaky clean – devoid of dust, grime, or pollution. Applying the face pack to unclean skin can lead to bacterial growth and negate all your efforts to combat acne.

2. Use a Soft Towel to Dry Your Face: Once your face is clean, use a soft towel to pat your skin dry. Remember not to be vigorous or harsh during this process, as it may prove abrasive to your skin.

3. Even Application of Face Pack: Now that your face is dry, take a spatula and apply a thin, even layer of the face pack. Avoid areas under the eyes, lips, and nose to prevent episodes of inflammation. Leave the face pack on for 15–20 minutes. Leaving the formulation on for prolonged periods may lead to dryness, flakiness, or uncomfy tightness.

4. Rinse Gently: Use lukewarm water to rinse the pack off. Ensure that once you are through, there is no trace of product left on the face.

Benefits Of Face Mask For Oily Skin

Face masks tighten the pores, which reduces oil production in the sebaceous glands and improves the appearance of your skin. They also reduce the signs of ageing and are known to revitalise sun-damaged and dull skin with their soothing effects. Along with the deep cleansing effects, face masks are also calming and a must-have for self-care days. So, let’s dive in and explore the 10 best masks you can buy.

FAQs

1. Can you use face packs daily?

Too much of a good thing can turn bad! Using face masks every day can lead to dryness and it may also cause irritation. It is ideal to use them 2-3 times a week.

2. Which face pack is best for skin brightening?

Detanning packs and masks with Vitamin C will help you achieve a from-within glow. We recommend the O3+ D-TAN Packthat nourishes and lightens the skin. The Khadi Natural Rose & Orange Face Pack is also great for oily skin as it gives a healthy glow while treating acne.

3. Which is better – face packs or scrubs?

Face scrubs exfoliate and take away dead skin, while packs provide hydration and moisture. They perform different functions and you can consider using them one after the other. However, many face packs have exfoliating ingredients like salicylic acid and give your skin a smooth feel without the abrasive texture of some scrubs.

4. Difference between face masks, face packs, and sheets

Face masks and packs are usually used interchangeably and often refer to creamy bottled formulas that have a thick texture and tighten the pores. Face mask sheets, on the other hand, are made with fine fibres or cloth that are pre-cut according to the contours of your face and drenched in serums and oils for a quick boost of hydration.
