The weather has been pretty hot lately and it's really discomforting getting all sweaty. Not only does body feels stuffy, but our skin too feels a bit suffocated when too much products are layered. This is what I have been doing lately: skip moisturizer, instead apply hydrating toner 1-3 layers and straight to sunscreen. (p:s, I have oily skin)
Hydrating ingredients in this toner along with the emollients in sunscreen is able to minimise the production of sebum. Here are top picks of hydrating toners to use in hot weather:
