5 Toners That Work Like Magic On Enlarged Pores
Recently, there has been a fierce debate questioning the need to use toners. Traditionally, toners were necessary to restore the skin’s pH balance after cleansing the skin. Most toners were strictly alcohol-based and, therefore, drying. However, toners have come a long way since then. And even though the world is divided on the necessity of toners, I, for one, think they are worth every buck, especially if you have large, open pores, and oily and sensitive skin. Also, a lot of them come with ingredients that help in calming irritated skin, fight ageing and acne, and cleaning and tightening pores so don’t do away with them just yet.
