What ingredients should we be looking for when we buy toners?
Generally speaking, most of the experts I consulted recommended looking for toners that contain healthy acids, including salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, AHA and BHA acids, and witch hazel. (Thayers Witch Hazel Toner ($11) is a favorite among POPSUGAR editors.) These acids help chemically exfoliate the skin and lift any excess oil and dirt away after cleansing. Currently, there are also a lot of toners on the market that address specific skincare concerns, including dryness, acne, dullness, and oiliness, so you can pick an alcohol-free toner that caters to your skin's needs.
