Toner: Oily Skin's Best Friend

Go best friend, that's my best friend! Go best friend, that's my best friend!

Ok...ok we'll stop. But you know when something gets you so excited you just wanna sing about it? Twerk in your mirror a little? That is what toner is for oily skin. That best friend that hypes you up and makes you look and feel your best!

As you may or may not realize, oily skin can lead to the buildup of more toxins on your face intern causing more acne, blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads, etc. Moreover...I am sure that you have also noticed make-up left over after cleansing your face. That leftover makeup and build up has got to go!

So what exactly do you do, wash again? No, excessive washing can lead to excessive drying. Toning, toning is your answer. Toner is the additional cleanser that you can apply to your skin that will also help to maintain your skin's pH balance, remove any leftover make-up or build up, as well as toxins. 

So what are some of the benefits of toner? Besides being like your cleansers BFF when you have oily skin,  toners hold a host of other benefits. Toners help tighten pores in close skin gaps affected by cleansers, they reduce the penetration of impurities in environmental toxins, protects from and removes chlorine and minerals present in tap water, and some can even help bind moisture to the skin.

Toner should be used for your evening and morning regimens to not only remove toxins but also any build up of sebum from your skins glands. Be sure to always use it after your cleanser and before your moisturizer to ensure that your skin seals in the moisture for a days worth of hydration. Try our favorite toner below!

    My question is with oily skin, do you spray your face with toner throughout the day or only day and night at wash regimen. I get shiny around noon…do you blot, spray??
