Total opposites, right? Sort of. Toners in general are meant to balance the pH of your skin, calm irritation and, of course, ward off any pesky blemishes by removing excess grime your cleanser doesn’t catch. Specialized ones can also exfoliate, brighten, and even tone and hydrate. The world is your toner oyster. Here’s a mix of best-selling faves that do some or all of the above.
