A good toner is
a non-alcohol refresher that helps remove the
residue of all the previous procedures. It refines
the pores and tautens and tones the skin, making
it ready for moisturizing treatment. Aftershave is
basically a toner. However, because most
aftershaves are primarily made of alcohol and
perfume, they damage the skin by disturbing the
recovery of the mental which is destroyed by
shaving soap and razor blade. The alcohol will
further dry the skin. Rather than such abrasive
products, try using mild astringents or essential
oil mists. Apply toner with cotton ball or spray
on with a hand pump mister.
