Why Use Skin Toner

Have you ever wondered what exactly is facial toner and what it is good for?  There are many brands of skin toners on shelves, usually next to the cleanser bottles or moisturizers.  This article will help you determine if you should use skin toner, how to use it and which is the best facial toner to buy.

What Does Skin Toner Do
Facial toners have been interchangably used with the terms astringents and fresheners.  Typically, skin toners tighten your skin and help close pores after you clean your face. A good skin toner should balance the pH of your skin,   close pores, and leave your face balanced, instead of different zones of oily versus dry.  Most facial toners contain alcohol, which may dry your skin as it tightens.  This may not be a good thing, since it may deplete your skin of natural essential oils and lead to premature aging and unhealthy skin. 

How to Use Facial Toner
You'll want to first cleanse your skin with the appropriate cleanser, based on your skin type.  Use a cotton ball and saturate it with your skin toner.  Gently swipe it across your forehead and nose, which are usually the most oily spots.  Let your skin dry naturally.  Follow with the moisturizer for your skin type and makeup.   

Best Skin Toner for Face
Everyone should consider their skin as sensitive.  Avoid facial toners with alcohol.  Cleure has an excellent alcohol free facial toner that is excellent for all skin types, including sensitive and  acne prone skin.  It is paraben free, gluten free, and fragrance free.
