Historically toners contained alcohol and were used as an astringent to tighten pores and balance the pH of the skin after using an alkaline soap product for cleansing.
Now, as more cleansers tend to be pH balanced and gentle, toners have evolved to a skincare category of their own, the reformulated toners of today go beyond that basic role, they now offer a wealth of benefits and target various skin concerns—from acne, dryness to aging.
Using a toner after cleansing the skin can help close pores and tighten cell gaps, reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. Toners can even protect and remove chlorine and minerals present in tap water.
Other toners contain pre and probiotics to optimize the functioning of the skins microbiome, like the Esse Toner Plus and Perris Skin Fitness Beauty Micellar Water Make-Up Remover a 2-in-1 product that removes make-up and also tones the skin.
