In short, toners are fast-penetrating liquids that deliver a healthy dose of high-performing skincare ingredients. Not too long ago, toners were full of overly astringent alcohols that we now know are damaging to the skin. These days, toners are loaded with nutrients and workhorse ingredients that can make all the difference for your skin—especially during the warmer months. Some toners are built for extra hydration and anti-aging while others are built to clear pores of anything that might turn into a blackhead or breakout. No matter your skin type, if you’re game to add a step to your regimen, using a toner is a great way to give your skin more of the stuff it needs to look its best.
