Toner is one of those steps in the redhead beauty routine that some people swear by and others skip altogether. While toner isn’t a necessary step by any means, it can be a helpful step if you’re someone with oily skin or pores that are prone to clogging.

What are the benefits of toner?

Toner helps to remove any excess makeup that you missed the first time around. It also removes any excess oils that have accumulated which can help with reducing acne. Additionally, toner can help to balance the pH of your skin and bring it back to “neutral”. There are toners that can help to brighten skin, hydrate skin, soothe redness and even tighten your pores.

When should I use toner?

Toner is best used after you wash and exfoliate, but before you do the rest of your skincare routine. Think of toner as a primer for your skincare. It ensures you have a clean slate to apply moisturizers, serums, and oils. Depending on your skin type, you may want to use toner daily or just a few times a week.
