Sea Breeze astringent is a popular brand of alcohol-based skin toner. It’s available at the drug store and can be used to cleanse skin, remove residue and prep for other products.
When used as directed, Sea Breeze astringent can be beneficial to your skin. But it also has some drawbacks that you should be aware of before using it on your face or body.
Sea Breeze astringent contains alcohol, which can dry out the skin and remove dirt and oil from pores. It also has a slight antiseptic action that helps fight bacteria on your skin. This makes it useful for preventing acne breakouts and treating existing pimples. The cooling sensation of an alcohol-based product might feel good after a long day in the sun or after shaving your legs or armpits.
Alcohol increases blood flow to the surface of your skin, which can cause redness and irritation if you’re not careful when using this product. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to redness or flushing after drinking alcohol or spicy foods, you may want to avoid using Sea Breeze astringent because its high concentration of alcohol could make your face look flushed or blotchy after using it.
