Skin toners have the capacity to leave your skin squeaky clean—almost literally. They help remove any residue left over from your makeup removal routine, and any excess dirt that may still be there from the initial morning wash. Yes, even your pillowcase can be a doozy.
Inside the category of skin toners, there is a wide array of choices. Everything from harsh and potent…*cough* witch hazel *cough* to natural and gentle with a more pleasant aroma.
Why use a natural skin toner?
Natural toners help wipe away excess oil and residue without depriving your skin of natural moisturizing oils.
To being completely honest, almost any toner you could use would be better than witch hazel, which is mostly alcohol anyway. While effective in removing dirt and residue from the face, it also strips the face of essential natural oils and moisture in the process. No, thank you, sir. I’ll pass.
