What 8 Dermatologists Have to Say About Toner (New Beauty, 9/26)

  • Some experts suggest toners are becoming, or already are, obsolete, while others deem them highly beneficial for certain skin types.
  • Pros: Alcohol-free toners are meant to balance the skin's pH and remove excess oil and dirt.
  • For sensitive skin, this can be a great alternative to a morning time cleanser.
  • Cons: Toners are sometimes viewed as obsolete and a trend of the past, and alcohol-based toners tend to strip the skin of its natural oils.
  • Today's toners could take your skincare routine to the next level, depending on your skin type and concerns.
  • We recommend SkinMedica's Rejuvenative Toner or Peter Thomas Roth's 8% Glycolic Solutions Toner.
