Facial toners, known also as tonics, lotions and astringents are solutions that remove surface skin cells, soap residue and oil from the skin. They are often heavy on water and alcohol and sometimes contain other ingredients like salicylic acid, witch hazel or benzoyl peroxide. A good toner will remove surface oils and debris which may be helpful for normal, oily or acne-prone skin, like Blu Skin Care’s USDA Certified "Organic Lemon-E Toner (Normal) or Organic Lemon-E Toner (Oily, Combination & Acne-Prone Skin.” These toners help remove excess oil from the skin, whisks away impurities that usually lead to blemishes and help clear up breakouts.

Most dermatologists say that if you cleanse your face regularly (at least twice a day) with the appropriate skincare products, you can go without a toner. However, many swear by toners as they keep their skin clean and fresh while it removes the excess oil from the surface of the skin. Most of the people with problem skin look for a toner containing alcohol as it dry the pimples faster and there is nothing wrong in that. You should look for a product specifically designed for oily or acne-prone skin.
Step #1 “Wash your face”
We recommend Blu Skin Care’s USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC “Oat-Flax Facial Cleanser”. It whisks away dirt and oil without chemicals and over-drying your skin.
Step #2 “Apply the toner”
We recommend Blu Skin Care’s USDA CERTIFIED “Organic Lemon-E Toner (Normal) or Organic Lemon-E Toner (Oily, Combination and Acne-Prone Skin)”. These toners clear up any residue that may be left behind after washing. They also hydrate your skin without harsh chemicals, leaving your skin feeling healthy and vibrant.
Remember, a toner should always be applied to a cleansed face. It should be applied with a cotton pad/ball. Saturate the cotton pad/ball and pat the toner gently over your neck, forehead, cheeks, chin and nose, or to the entire face.
