Beauty professionals often recommend the use of face toners, but many skincare users remain mystified as to why this step is beneficial. This lack of knowledge then leads to misinformed decisions, using the wrong kind of toner, or skipping the step all together.

What Is A Face Toner?
Toners are an efficient last step in a thorough cleansing process. Often having a milky or watery texture, toners remove remaining makeup—and even the day’s pollution—in just a few, easy swipes. Impurities can often linger on one’s complexion after initial cleansing so a toner often guarantees your skin remains it’s purest form of clean.
The best toner for your face is one that gently exfoliates to deliver a radiant complexion and also stop blemishes from forming.
