Facial toners can help to improve the overall appearance of your skin by tightening your pores, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and cleansing your skin by removing dead cells, dirt, makeup and oil. Other benefits include: increased circulation, improved hydration, and most importantly, restoring the natural PH balance of your skin. Facial toners should be applied between the cleansing and moisturizing steps of your skincare regimen. Wipe the slate clean with these alcohol-free toners.
