7 Face Masks To Help Your Skin Look Less Oily This Summer

ELLE Logo By Chloe Hall of ELLE | Slide 1 of 8: If you've got oily skin, finding the perfect face mask can be daunting. You don't want something harsh that will completely dry your skin out, but you need to find something to counteract overactive sebaceous glands. And somehow, summer seems to exasperate it all! But don't fret, Dr. Sobel, a New York-based dermatologist, is here to help. He recommended a few key ingredients to look for in an oil fighting face mask: "Look for Kaolin and Bentonite Clay varieties, which are highly absorbent, and help draw out impurities from the skin and clear pores," says Dr. Sobel. "Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid reduce excess oil and prevent pores from clogging that lead to breakouts." Additionally, sulfur is another great ingredient for those with oily skin because it absorbs excess oil and has antibacterial properties as well. Ahead, shop seven face masks to help keep your oil production in check.
