Skin Care Astringents and Toners
Great skin care includes using an astringent and toner. Using them after cleansing helps to restore a healthy pH balance to the skin. Astringents work best for skin that tends to be oily or blemished-they remove excess oil and temporarily tighten enlarged pores. Natural astringents include Witch Hazel, Peppermint, Yarrow, and Sage. Toners are gentler and rely on soothing ingredients such as Rose water, Aloe, Chamomile, and Lanvedar.
