Astringent

An astringent has the ability to dry out and tighten tissues. An astringent substance may be used for its antiseptic properties. Inappropriate use of astringent soaps is sometimes responsible for dry skin. If this is the case, they should be replaced with superfatted soaps, specially designed for dry skin.
