If you have sensitive skin, you can still incorporate toner skin care into your routine. The best toner for acne takes the best of both worlds - look into a toner for oily skin that can also minimize pores. The best toner for sensitive skin is any formula that is fragrance and alcohol free. Look into the ingredients of your chosen product, as some ingredients may be more irritating than beneficial.

Your face toner is applied after your cleanser and helps prep the skin for serums and moisturizer.
1. Pat your face dry, and apply your facial toner on a cotton pad before wiping it gently all over your face, while avoiding the eye and mouth area.
2. You can reapply your face toner until you feel like your face is adequately clean.
3. Wait a few minutes for your facial toner to fully absorb before going in with your serum or moisturizer.
