4. The refreshing pick
Apart from fighting shine and blemishes, this toner hydrates oily skin. Unknown to many, moisturizing oil skin is key in controlling oil production. When the skin is dehydrated, it signals the oil glands to produce more oil, so if you want shine-free skin, never neglect to hydrate your pores.
