Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin’s surface.

Sebum is an oily substance made of fats and it isn’t all bad since it helps protect and moisturize your skin and keep your hair shiny and healthy.

However, too much sebum can lead to oily skin, clogged pores, and acne. Managing oily skin can be quite stressful and requires adequate attention.

Here are a few ways to manage oily skin without products;

1. Wash Your Face Regularly

Washing regularly can reduce the amount of oil on the skin. Wash with a gentle soap and warm water and avoid soaps with fragrances, added moisturizers, or harsh chemicals, which can irritate or dry out the skin, making it respond by creating more sebum.

2. Use A Toner

Astringent toners that contain alcohol tend to dry out the skin. However, natural astringents, such as witch hazel, can have skin soothing properties.

Witch hazel has a high tannin content that makes it a natural astringent and anti-inflammatory.

3. Honey

Honey is one of nature’s most potent skin remedies. Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic abilities, it is beneficial to oily and acne-prone skin.

Honey is also a natural humectant, so it helps keep the skin moist but not oily. This is because humectants draw moisture from the skin without replacing it.

4. Oatmeal Mask

Oatmeal helps calm inflamed skin and absorb excess oil. It also helps exfoliate dead skin. When used in facial masks, oatmeal is usually ground. It can be combined with yogurt, honey, or mashed fruit such as bananas or papaya.

For optimum results, massage the oatmeal mixture into your face for about three minutes and rinse with warm water.
