Multi-Active Toner by Dermalogica

Toner is a very important step in your daily skin routine.

A toner’s job is meant to gently refresh your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. This means toner won’t irritate sensitive skin or cause excessive dryness. Toner also prepares the skin to drink up your post-cleansing moisturizer and any other skin treatments that you may apply.

Light facial toner hydrates and refreshes. This ultra-light toner with moisture-binding humectants helps condition and prep skin for proper moisture absorption. Soothing Arnica, Balm Mint and Lavender refresh the skin, making this spritz ideal for skin hydration after cleansing and throughout the day.

Toners—they’re equal parts essential and mystifying, But are they really a crucial part of taking care of your skin? Short answer: Yes. So, to put a stop to the confusion once and for all, here’s exactly why you need to be toning your skin daily, plain and simple.

Toners were originally devised as an extra cleansing step to remove dirt and impurities from makeup and environmental pollution. While cleansers have come a long way, there may still be makeup that’s left behind, so it’s the best and easiest way to ensure you complexion is squeaky clean.

Toners are notorious for removing excess oil, which is what clogs pores and causes blackheads in the first place. “If you have acne or oil-prone skin, look for a toner that contains glycolic acid or salicylic acid, as it will cut down on oil and shine.

Toners are specifically designed to restore pH balance to the skin. Basically it keeps your skin from becoming too dry or oily after you wash your face. Helps even out skin porosity.
