Steer clear of products that promise a deep clean, since that usually means they strip oil from your skin. "Toner is the first thing you should give up," says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, founder of Marmur Medical in New York City. "Also stay away from face washes that contain benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, or strong detergents. They're too harsh and they really dry out your skin." An oil-based or creamy cleanser is a better bet right now.
