However, you skins' natural ability to lubricate the surface layer is determined by the moisture level within. Stripping the face of oil will have the reverse effect, tricking the skin into believing that it is dry and forcing it to produce more oil to maintain hydration. So avoid products which contain high levels of alcohol. Anthony Logistics Alcohol-free Toner is the perfect solution. Essential oils help lift residual oil from the surface whilst maintaining the skin's natural moisture. Pores appear tighter and smoother, preventing any dirt/oil from settling within.

  • Use a scrub twice weekly,
  • Avoid products with a high alcohol concentration
  • Use a mask once weekly
