Does your skin feel greasy from the inside but yet looks dehydrated, flaky and inflamed on the surface? Here’s why.

Toners of the past were marketed as being astringents to remove excess oil.
The key is to regulate oil production and not to superficially remove oil like an astringent toner does.
Doing so leads to a dehydrated-oily skin phenomenon.

Dermatologist Skincare Tips:
Use a facial essence or an emulsion
K-beauty inspired facial essences are water-based. Water itself is a fantastic astringent/cleanser on its own—without stripping skin dry. This is why our skin feels cleansed after a bath. For the same reason dermatologists advise applying water compresses to wounds to gently cleanse and remove exudates. Use oil in water emulsions to moisturise oily skin. Don't use creams or skip moisturiser.

Face mist hack
I completely eliminate toners in my skincare regimen. Instead my facial mist is multi-purposed as an on-the-go cleanser, toner and moisturiser. I choose one that is free of potentially irritating skincare actives like AHA, BHAs and retinol. The formulation should include a mix of different hydrating ingredients such as glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, polyglutamic acid and also antioxidants. In this case, especially in summer climates, I simply spray on my face mist right after cleansing and I’m done!

The following is excerpted from my book—Skincare Bible: Dermatologist’s Tips on Cosmeceutical Skincare.I also include free video workshops and tutorials on DIY home facials for public education.

What Is My Skin Type?
Skin Types
Dry: skin that produces less sebum than normal skin, individuals with inherited DNA defects in filaggrin gene causing eczema, previous skin irritation with cleansers/skincare
Oily: skin that produces more sebum than normal skin (an overproduction of sebum is known as seborrhea)
Normal (scientifically known as ‘eudermic’): well-balanced and healthy skin, with good production of ceramide as part of the skin barrier
Combination: a mix of skin types in the T-zone and cheeks
How Do You Determine Your Skin Type?
The best way to do this is simple and you can even do it at home with the following steps:
Wash your face and let dry for 30 to 60 minutes.
Dab a tissue on the T-zone (nose, forehead) and cheeks.

If you feel that only your nose is oily, that means you have combination skin. If you are oily on your nose and cheeks, you have oily skin. If both your T-zone and cheeks are dry, it means you have dry skin.
