    Hi Sameera, yes red clay mask can be applied to the oily skin. The only precaution you need to take are, ensure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients mentioned to make the mask and secondly, if you are applying this mask for the first time then go for a patch test. If you do not find anything usually then go for it.

    Hi Keerthi, anything done in excess may cause harm than do any good. Thus, give a gap of couple of days between the packs. This will also give the ingredients some time to work on the skin and show benefits.

    Hi Habiba, for a combination skin, tomatoes or oats would be great!
