I Have Oily Skin And Can’t Use Toner As It Burns My Skin.

Question

I have oily skin and can’t use toner as it burns my skin. Have tried lots of products but still have to dab my skin with tissue during the day because of this. Any product you can suggest to help?

Answer

Thank-you so much for your enquiry. I’m sorry to hear that you’re having this issue. It is not always necessary for you to use toners. There are many people who have this problem with toners, especially if their skin is very sensitive. Remember also, that many toners contain alcohols and ingredients that will tingle and sting. Many of the ranges that I recommend don’t have toners as part of their ranges at all, as they put all their actives into their topical products. I can highly recommend the Lamelle Clarity range for this problem, as this range has an oral supplement that goes along with the products (called Acnevelle), which deals with the actual sebaceous secretion (ie it actually helps to slow down the oil from being secreted in the first place), rather than having to deal with the oil when it’s already been secreted all over your skin. The topical products are also excellent for normalising and balancing out your skin. If you’d like to know more about the products or if you’d like us to get them for you, please feel free to contact any of our Skin Renewal Branches, and we’ll gladly assist you.

Good day Dr. I developed dark marks around my mouth in December and tried using everything but they wouldn’t go away,I then went to the pharmacy where the gentleman there mixed persivate with aqueous cream and told me to use it,I used it and they went away however I’m worried about the effect it will have on my skin,I haven’t stopped using it. Is it going to damage my skin and have negative consequences later in life?
