All about toners

Toning is often overlooked in a skin care regimen due to confusion surrounding the purpose of a toner. Toners normalize the pH balance of your skin, as well as remove any remaining residue or make-up that was left on the skin post-cleansing.

Like a cleanser, the toner you use will typically depend on your skin type:

Oily to combination
Oily and combination skin types usually prefer astringent-type toners that remove excess oil and bacteria from the skin while providing a mattifying effect. Witch hazel based toners are often most popular for oily skin types, as witch hazel acts as a natural antimicrobial. While oily and combination skin types gravitate towards alcohol-based toners due to the tightening effect, we recommend staying away from anything alcohol-based as alcohol strips the skin of its essential protective oils and has a very drying effect on the skin.

Normal to dry
Normal to dry skin types prefer toners that have a nourishing effect. Toners for normal to dry skin will contain hydrating extracts to nurture the skin.
