Product of the Day: Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone
The Goods: This quartet of potions deep cleans like toners, but provides problem-specific solutions to skin-care concerns, like a serum would. Packed with AHA's and antioxidants, each blend is formulated to remedy its own skin woe, without irritating your mug. ($38; sephora.com)
Why It Works: Most toners contain alcohol or witch hazel bases which can strip skin of its natural oils. These 'activators' (you apply them to clean skin, after washing) only serve to prep your skin to better receive the active ingredients it needs most. Choose from Green Apple (for acne), Melon (to brighten), Chia (to hydrate), or Red Algae (fight wrinkles).
Insider Tip: The change of seasons often calls for a skin-care overhaul, that includes new cleanser, moisturizer, and serum. Cut corners with time and money by picking up the activator that best fits your skin's need.
