Toners serve the function of restoring the skin’s pH, healing the acid mantle of the skin, and promoting the health of the skin. We use toners after cleansing the face, and before moisturizing. Some of these toners are multifunctional as both cleansers and toners.
Oily skin needs toners that will help to regulate the skin’s sebum while keeping the skin moisturized and aerated. The best toners are:
Apple cider vinegar: ACV is famed for being a great toner and makeup remover.
Lemon juice: Lemon juice is very effective as an astringent, and so would be a great toner. Dilute with a little water, as it can be a bit harsh. It has the great side benefit of fading dark marks and skin blemishes.
Witch hazel: Witch hazel is a great toner, an astringent, and helps to prevent breakouts and ease sebum production.
Aloe Vera juice: Aloe Vera juice is mild, a great moisturizer, and heals deeply. In fact, this would probably be my favorite on this list. It is very gentle (and so doesn’t sting), healing and soothing to the skin, and deeply moisturizes.
You have to have at least one of the great toners on this list, for the best skin.
