Toners help to pull out and remove oil from deep within your skin’s pores, while also gently exfoliating your skin for a bright and clean appearance.
There is a wide array of toner products and brands available on the marketplace today. Most break down into one of two categories.
Alcohol based toners, use the solvent power of alcohol to remove dead skin and dissolve oil trapped deep down in your pores. Alcohol can penetrate deep down into the skin. As a result, it can also act as a drying agent and might cause irritation of you have sensitive skin.
If you have issues with skin aging, or you have had skin sensitivity and dryness issues in the past, you might want to seek out a brand of non-alcoholic toner. Most quality brands can give you the same cleansing and exfoliating as alcohol based toners, without all the irritation issues.
