Toners help eliminate leftover dirt or oil after cleansing, plus tighten pores to protect the face from clogging debris that causes blemishes. Toners leave your skin looking brighter and feeling fresher. Be sure to choose a toner with your skin type in mind. Some toners contain alcohol, which are best suited for oily complexions; alcohol will only further dehydrate dry skin types. Some toners help reduce the visible signs of aging, while other refresh, clarify or soothe skin.
