What is skin toner? What is astringent?

Category: Health & Beauty


Facial Toner and AstringentSkin and facial toners are often used after cleansing to help balance, condition, and soothe sensitive skin. They have the ability to remove residue and allow the skin to accept the benefits of a moisturizer. Many skin toners are specifically designed for hydrating and exfoliating. Toners are best suited for individuals with dry, sensitive skin because they typically don’t contain harsh chemicals or alcohol. Astringents contain the same basic ingredients as toners but utilize chemicals or alcohol in their formulation. They are best suited for individuals with oily skin and work by tightening pores to help remove impurities, dirt, and makeup.
