Toners can help a great deal in reducing pore size and making our faces young and blemish free. Here are a few tips on finding using the best toner for your skin.
Know your terminology. Different companies may call their toner products different things, but generally, you have astringent and fresheners. Astringents are generally stronger and can be harsh on your skin, while fresheners are usually used to denote a product that’s milder. Toners can cover the entire gamut of these products, or mean something else entirely, depending on the manufacturer, so be sure to do some reading before deciding on a toner product.
Some toners do more than “tone”. Toners these days do so much more than just reduce pore size. Toners these days are far more likely to contain a wide range of ingredients for hydrating your skin or producing a calming effect. Other toners also lighten your skin tone and create a “mattifying” effect.
Stick with milder astringents. Harsh toners can wreak havoc with your skin chemistry and leave it worse than when you started. Unless you have a specific skin issue, it’s best to avoid harsher astringents and toners, particularly the ones that use a high percentage of alcohol.
