There are tons of facial toners on the market that swear they'll clear up skin and remove excess dirt and make-up trapped inside pores. Here's my take: Photocopiers need toner, your skin does not.
Toners are alcohol-based products. They are harsh, drying and damaging, which is why they sting your face. Alcohol-based products remove the excess oil from your skin, causing tightness and dryness. Stick to the alcohol you can drink--don't waste money rubbing it over your face in hopes of getting fabulous looking skin. It's just not going to happen.
