The Innovative Hybrid Textures That Should Be in Your Skin Care Routine

If you wish your toner was just a little more hydrating, or your face oil was a little bit lighter, keep reading to discover three hybrid skin care trends that give you the best of both worlds. 

Who doesn’t want to get the most out of a single product? With the rise of two-in-one products, that’s become an achievable reality.
In particular, there are a few types of hybrid texture products that we’ve seen cropping up recently, like cream skin toners and oil serums. Intrigued? Get to know and shop these innovative product categories below! 

Cream Skin Toners

Last summer, cream toners became the new must-have moisturizing product amongst Korean skin care aficionados. Unlike traditional toner formulas, cream toners have a milky consistency, but they’re still lightweight.
One of the most common complaints you hear about toner is that certain formulas can dry out the skin, and that’s not good for any skin type. Cream toners balance and prep your skin for any products that follow (as any toner does) while hydrating it at the same time. If you feel like you need a bit more moisture in your daily skin care routine, consider trying the COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream or the Hanskin Avocado Cream Skin for a few weeks and track the progress.

Oil Serums

Oil-serum hybrids are having their moment right now, with brands like Glossier hopping on the trend. You might be asking yourself, is it a serum or an oil? The answer is literally both.
A serum penetrates the deeper layers of the skin with essential vitamins and nutrients dedicated to a specific concern. An oil is meant to assist the skin with locking in moisture and typically consists of a range of different oils (which is why they also tend to smell amazing). So when it comes to oil serums, like Neogen’s White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop, you can expect your skin to not only get active ingredients that act as an essential part of your routine, but also a nice layer of extra moisture and barrier protection.

Powder Setting Sprays

Are you a fan of using setting powders or setting sprays to perfect your complexion? What if we told you that you can now have both in one shot?  A fairly new trend is the setting powder spray hybrid. Smith and Cult’s Instant Recall Invisible Powder Setting Spray is one that has emerged on the beauty market, and it truly gets the job done. You don’t have to worry about dusting off powder with one of these, and you don’t have to wait for any wet spray to dry on your face. It’s convenient of course, but it’s effectiveness is what really makes this a game changer. As a very one-and-done type of product, your makeup will stay in place and your skin will barely feel anything as a result. Plus, the formula contains dehydrated coconut water for added skin-perfecting benefits. These are lightweight, transparent, and so easy to use.
