The New TONERS

Good Housekeeping (Philippines) - - Your Look -

Astrin­gent toners, those that leave your skin feel­ing su­per tight and dry due to their al­co­hol con­tent, are so yes­ter­day—and clearly not for ev­ery­one. “Usu­ally, if a pa­tient’s skin is oily, I let them use toners that can help con­trol the oili­ness and pre­vent acne,” says Anna Pal­abyab-rufino M.D., a der­ma­tol­o­gist af­fil­i­ated with the In­ter­na­tional So­ci­ety of Der­ma­tol­ogy. Oth­er­wise, they can be skipped. If you have nor­mal, dry, or sen­si­tive skin, how­ever, you can ben­e­fit more from hy­drat­ing toners, some­times la­beled skin soft­en­ers, re­fresh­ers or fresh­en­ers, or ton­ing wa­ters, which are safer to use ev­ery day. These mild toners con­tain wa­ter and humec­tants (which keep the mois­ture in) and very lit­tle, if any, al­co­hol.
