These and beauty care productts used for the final step in your cleansing routine, are all basically similar. They differ mainly in the amount of alcohol they contain – those for dry skins having little or none, whilst those formulated for oily skins will have a higher proportion. What do they do?

Pat all over your face and throat -everywhere your cleanser has been. It isn't essential to use a freshener, toner or astringent after cleansing with soap, a cleansing bar or a wash-off cleanser, as the water you use will remove these products from your skin. But if you are using an astringent to help control oiliness, then you should reapply it after any type of cleansing. All these products can be used as quick cleansers when make-up isn't worn – first thing in the morning, for instance; or to refresh your skin in hot weather – when it helps to keep them in the 'fridge!
