Oily skin that tends to shine needs gentle care: anything else just aggravates it. 

What oily skin needs:
A purifying, strengthening mask. This will brighten and revive skin, stop excess sebum production, prevent blackheads from forming, tighten your pores and get rid of unsightly shine.

What you need: 
A bowl
A pot of Greek honey
200ml rosewater (this has astringent proprties)
5 drops of essential lavender oil (this regulates sebum)

Method:

Mix 3 tbsp honey with 1 tbsp rosewater and 6 drops of essential lavender oil. Apply in a thick layer over the face, paying particular attention to the T-zone (chin, nose and forehead). Leave for 15 minutes. Massage gently, making small movements with your fingertips. Rinse. 

Use this mask once a week on clean, dry skin.
