ok so ive had pretty normal skin throughout my life. (no dryness,oil, or acne) for about the past 2 weeks i've been getting oily around my forehead and down the bridge of my nose. I exfoliate with the aspirin mask 1x every other week.
My makeup application consists of primer and foundation/and or powder. Im starting to think the the aspirin mask is counter acting, making my skin oily, what do you guys think? I really havent changed anything in my rountine so im kind of stumped...

i tried aspirin mask for my break out,, i thought it make my skin dry rather than oily. maybe you should try clay mask! i use the body shop seaweed ionic clay mask. the smells not so great but it works for me! get rid of extra oil ^^ also i use baking soda with cream cleanser for exfoliate! hope it works for you <3
Maybe the mask is drying your skin too much causing it to produce oil. You may want to stop any mask if you keep having the problem and see if that helps. Also try using blotting paper girl, I love it.
I agree with Tina. As much as oil is annoying, when your skin is overworked (frequent masks/exfoliating) it will produce even more.. which leads to a crazy cycle. I'd dial back the mask (maybe once every 3-4 weeks) and see how it goes.
Also, just wanted to add that the seaweed mask Romee mentioned is fabulous.. <3
OK i figured thats what was happening! thank you ladies and im going to check out the seaweed mask this weekend.

Also, don't forget to moisturize! I have super oily skin and I've noticed a world of a difference once I started moisturizing every night (not in the morning). :)

its probly the mask thats drying out your skin and causing it to produce more oil than usual. u shud also review whatever you use to cleanse and moisturize.
