5 Toners for Acne-Prone and Oily Skin
If toners aren’t already a staple in your skin-care regimen, we’re here to convince you otherwise. Every day, your skin is exposed to dirt, oil and impurities that can take a toll on your complexion. While cleansing is one the best ways to rid your skin of pore-clogging grime, toners offer a great solution to get rid of any other impurities that often get left behind. They can also help balance your skin’s pH after using a harsh cleanser. If you’re someone with oily skin, using a toner can make a big difference in your quest to combat excess oil and shine. Ahead, we’re sharing our favorite toners for the oil- and acne-prone.
The SkinCeuticals LHA Toner contains a blend of chemical exfoliants including lipo-hydroxy acid and salicylic acid to help improve clogged pores. In addition to breakouts, it also targets dull, uneven skin.
The Kiehl’s Calendula Toner is formulated with whole flowers and pure extracts to not only cleanse normal to oily skin, but soothe and help improve blemishes. It contains calendula flower petals, great burdock root extract and allantoin, but doesn’t include any alcohol or other harsh synthetic drying agents.
Formulated with lipo-hydroxy acid, this toner works to gently exfoliate oily and acne prone skin types. It also works to refine skin texture by unblocking and tightening enlarged pores.
