Your Guide to Toner


What Does a Toner Do?

Toner cleanses and closes your pores, making your skin look and feel healthier. It removes dirt, grime, and impurities from your pores after you wash your face. Use toner every day in your skincare routine to restore your skin's pH level and reduce the appearance of large pores over time. In addition, it preps your skin for the next steps of your skincare routine like serums and moisturizers.

Who Should Use Face Toner?

Toner is essential for anyone and any skin type. People who wear makeup or have oily skin may especially benefit from adding this step into their routine. 

When should I use it?

To get the most out of your skin-care routine, apply toner to your face after you double cleanse and exfoliate. You should use toner in your day and night skin-care routines. 

Are Toners Astringent?

In the past, toners were considered unnecessary and drying—qualities that most definitely aren't conducive to radiant skin. Toners used to contain high levels of alcohol to help remove oil from the skin. Today, though, toners actually do the opposite: they hydrate skin, leaving it dewy and soft.
