Oily skin can occur as a result of genetics, medications, the pill, poor diet, stress, or hormonal changes; often these triggers actually cause the skin to dry out and the skin responds by producing too much oil to compensate.

This reaction is most common as a result of using the wrong type of skin products for your skin type, or the overuse of skin products and tools - using chemically laden products too often for example, or vigorously and excessively scrubbing your face with cloths, loofahs or mits.

Here are some natural beauty tips to help combat oil skin:

Apply some fresh lemon juice to a cotton wool ball and use as a toner on your face - be sure to moisturise afterwards, and if you have sensitive skin you'll need to wash the lemon juice off before moisturising. Adding some calendula or witch hazel to the lemon juice will have an even more powerful and gentle cleansing effect.

Try a homemade clay face mask - clay gently exfoliates and draws impurities out of the skin.

Make a face mask by whisking one egg white, half a teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of lemon juice.

Try taking a break from all products for a week or more and simply wash your face daily with warm water - it will help your skin restore its natural oil balance.

Cucumber is brilliant for oily skin - make a face mask by pureeing some fresh cucumber with some milk of your choice.

When you do wash your face - with our without products - be gentle with your skin or you will over-stimulate the sebaceous glands which produce oil.

The best healing happens from the inside out - drink plenty of clean water, herbal teas, and eat a balanced diet of whole foods including daily fresh fruit and vegetables. Avoid foods that are processed, refined, fried and greasy - eat moderate amounts of healthy fats from avocado, olive oil, flax seed oil, coconut oil, fatty fish and full fat dairy from ethical dairy producers.
