if u know water-based moisturizers, it's better for us oily-skins.. not lots, just the right amount that u wont look too oily. it's not really necessary coz we already have oils in the face.

A homemade facial mask for oily skin can help clean your pores, cut down on break outs, and make your complexion look less shiny and oily. Here are some tips to keep in mind before you use a homemade facial for your oily skin. 1. It’s best to use a homemade facial mask soon after you make it. However, if you have extra, you can keep most of these masks in the refrigerator for up to a week. 2. You shouldn’t leave a mask on any longer than instructed. 3. Those with oily skin should use a mask at least twice a month. 4. While you’re waiting to remove your facial mask, take the time to relax. Lie down and close your eyes. Read a chapter of that book you’ve been meaning to get to. Whatever you find restful. 5. Those with oily skin should wash their faces two or three times a day with oil-free cleanser. 6. A good toner for oily skin is fresh lemon juice. Use a cotton ball to apply the juice to your entire face. 7. If you have oily skin, you should use an oil-free moisturizer. Cucumber and Yogurt Facial Mask for Oily skin Not only is cucumber soothing to your skin, it is purported to reduce wrinkles. Clean and peel one cucumber. Put half of it in a food processor or blender. Add about 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt. Blend the mixture until smooth. Apply the cucumber yogurt mask to your entire face, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for ten to fifteen minutes, then remove mask with lukewarm water. Strawberry and Yogurt Facial Mask for Oily Skin The yogurt will naturally exfoliate your oily skin. Place four ripe, clean strawberries in a bowl. Use a fork to smash the strawberries. Add a teaspoon of plain yogurt and stir until the mixture is smooth. Apply the mixture to your face, and leave on for ten to fifteen minutes. Remove mask with lukewarm water. Lemon and Oatmeal Facial Mask for Oily Skin Lemon will help tighten and tone your oily skin. In a blender or food processor, blend one cup of oatmeal, one teaspoon lemon juice, and one tablespoon plain yogurt. Apply the mixture to your face, leaving on for ten to fifteen. Then rinse off with warm water. Apple and Honey Facial Mask for Oily Skin Honey is a natural astringent that will also help to tighten your oily skin. Add one apple (peeled, seeded, and cut into slices) into a blender or food processor. Add three tablespoons of honey. Blend the mixture well. Apply to face and leave on for ten to fifteen minutes. Then, rinse with warm water. To Deal With Blackheads Blackheads are common in those with oily skin. To help deal with them, mix two or three tablespoons of baking soda with an equal amount of water in a bowl. Apply the mixture to your face, and gently massage it into your skin for about three minutes. Then, rinse face with warm water.

You should just make sure to wash your face in the morning and at night. Drink lots of water and don't sleep late at night. Some powders may help but get the kind that doesn't clog pores.
