Over the Winter, my skin was looking it's best. I had a great routine for it, and things were looking and feeling smooth. However, because of my combination skin type, when the season changes, my skin also changes. I like to call my skin high maintenance because it does take a bit of extra care and attention to get it looking healthy. With the warmer season, my skin becomes more prone to breakouts. Because of all of the time I am spending outside enjoying the weather, I also have to be ware that I am exposing my face to more dirt particles and sweat.
After messing around with a few brands getting ready for summer skin, I have discovered that Laneige has been a savior. The Laneige Power Essential Skin Toner has been such a great solution for my skin. I picked up the formula for combination to oily skin, but they also have one formulated for dry to normal skin types.
The toner is a refresher to the skin, providing and keeping all of the moisture locked in. When used with an exfoliating cotton pad, it wipes away any dead skin cells or residue, leaving a protective layer on the skin that does not feel greasy.
I love using this right after a shower or bath, and I also keep it handy in my beach bag as a quick cleanser/refresher. It dries down nicely and works as a great base for makeup. Definitely a summer must have for my skin care routine!
