Gather up your kitchen ingredients and brush up on your DIY skills because we have another roundup of make-at-home face masks. We already covered DIY dry skin face masks, so oily skin ladies, this one’s for you! Check out the best DIY face masks for oily skin that you can make in minutes.

DIY face masks give you cheaper, chemical-free alternatives to store-bought masks that are much gentler on your skin. At-home face masks for oily skin usually involve bananas or oatmeal, so hit the grocery store beforehand and stock up on ingredients. You can always add your own ingredient variations of you’re an avid DIY face mask creator. And, you should always test out products before applying them all over your skin. Once you make your own mask, put it on a small patch of your face for a few minutes to see how it reacts.

Oatmeal, Honey, and Yogurt:

According to DIY Remedies, oatmeal actually makes the perfect face mask ingredient because it exfoliates your skin and can help remove dirt and grime that clogs your pores. The yogurt can work wonders for your face, too. Its lactic acid helps soothe your skin. Last but not least, honey has way more benefits than you can believe. It gives your skin an extra kick of moisture and can help protect your skin from infections, among many other things. Stir these ingredients into a paste, and lather it on your face. You can even make a snack out of it. You might also want to lie down after you apply it to prevent oatmeal chunks from falling around your house. Get the full recipe here.

Turmeric Powder and Honey:

Bright yellow turmeric powder might seem super intimidating, especially to put on your face, but there’s a method to the madness. You get tons of benefits from eating the spice, so it makes sense that using it externally will have its perks on your body, too. According to The Indian Spot, turmeric powder can help clear you pores, remove dead skin, and has antioxidants that prevent aging. Be warned, though—the obnoxiously bright color of the mask might stain, so wear old clothes if you test this one out. The Indian Spot recommends buying a specific kind called kasturi turmeric.

Banana, Honey, and Lemon:

According to Bellatory, bananas have helpful antioxidants and essential nutrients, can moisturize your skin, and have oil-fighting powers to prevent breakouts. Bananas in face masks have the ability to get rid of excess oil on the surface of your skin, so grab a handful the next time you’re in the produce section. You can treat yourself to a bite to eat and clear skin in one quick trip to the store. Mix a ripe banana, honey, and a dash of lemon for less oily skin in no time. Get the full recipe here.

Oatmeal, Green Tea, and Honey:

Brace yourself for another funny-looking oatmeal mask! According to Holistic Health Herbalist, ground oatmeal can also help reduce redness and irritation, and oatmeal in skin care dates back hundred of years. Throw in some green tea, raw honey, and your choice of essential oil to help your skin produce less acne-inducing oil. Get the full recipe here.
