Flaky and Burns??HELP!!😫

😳 Started two new products. A toner and cleanser! 😳 Try both for three days, but the skin got flaky and burning started. 😳The burning and flaky is only on my chin and around my mouth. Nothing else on my face hurts, which is weird. 😳 I use the toner twice a day morning and night. Used the cleanser at night. 😳 My routine for my face (after suncreen is night):

i know that a lot of people don't recommend witch hazel on sensitive skin. i would stop that toner and go for a simple hydrating alcohol free one or more simple, a thermal water. i feel like adapalene + witch hazel doesn't work for your skin and triggered the burning sensation! try to find a simple, hydrating toner, or even more minimalist, a soothing thermal water.

agree ! witch hazel can be drying atimes , especially when you use it twice a day with adapalene. Maybe you can skip the toner and use it only few times a week or change to a hydrating toner

Witch hazel is a definite irritant to me and my skin doesn't get easily irritated. Cut back to the gentle basics and let your skin heal for a week or two. Reintroduce the products back into your routine one at a time allowing a week in between - this will help you determine the trigger of irritation.

thank you for the information!😊 Do you think because I used the toner twice a day, that it irritated it??
