Some people veer away from using a toner because they assume that it will just dry out their skin. Toning is an essential skincare step as not only does it finish off remaining dirt and grime that your cleanser may have missed, the right product also helps keep your skin's proper pH balance and preps your face for serums and moisturizers.

Thankfully, there are toners with moisturizing and cleansing formulas that can work even for oily skin! These often come with zero or less alcohol content so you can be sure that it can still purify pores without sucking out your complexion's natural moisture level.
