Over the years facial brands have evolved. Before toner use to be really harsh because they use to contain alcohol. We now know that it’s best to use alcohol free products , as it can really dry the skin. Toners can have a variety of uses such as a pre-moisturizer, anti-aging, hydrating, soothing, mattifying, and most importantly to minimize the appearance of pores. A great trick is to apply toner right when you get out of a hot shower because the steam really cleans up your pores and allows the toner to settle in. Here’s a list of some of our favorite toners from our stylist:
Astara AHA Nutrient Toning Essense Lush Toner Water
Korres Pomergranate Toner Nars Multi-Action Hydrating Toner
