While a toner has the texture and feel of water, each is uniquely formulated with different types of active and balancing ingredients. If you have yet to make an exfoliating toner a constant in your skincare regimen, now is the time to consider it! An exfoliating toner is usually made with a combination of acids, humectants and pH-balancing ingredients to do a little bit of everything for your skin! Regular exfoliation is key to reduce texture and refine the skin’s surface for a smoother, glowing complexion. In addition, it helps to purify the pores and remove excess oil to leave the skin clear and luminous instantly.
