But despite how underrated they are, toners can actually make a world of difference for your complexion — especially if you have oily skin. The main function of a toner is to balance out your skin’s pH level after cleansing and to provide an even, hydrated canvas for your serums and moisturisers to absorb much better than they normally would.
And depending on which one you get, many toners contain glycolic and salicylic acids to help remove excess dirt and dead skin cells missed in cleansing, making these formulas ideal for those with oily and acne-prone skin.
So for all of us that suffer from a little excess shine, here are six of the best toners for oily skin.
Dermalogica Breakout Clearing All Over Toner
Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion
Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner
La Roche-Posay Serozinc
