Balance, Soothe and Treat Your Oily Skin With These Toners

best toners for oily skin in the philippines

Growing up in the Philippines, we didn’t really have a lot of toner options (except for astringents that were popular during that time). So it’s nice to see the variety on the market right now. There are so many options for every skin type — and that means there’s a big chance you’ll find the best toners for oily skin.

Are toners good for oily skin?

While they’re not really ‘essential’ to a skincare routine, toners that have active ingredients and provide treatment for specific skin woes are definitely good additions to your regimen.

What to look for in toners for oily skin

Most toners give a more thorough clean after you wash your face (this is for those that you put on using cotton pads) and balance your pH. There are those that are packed with ingredients that do more than these though — look for salicylic acid that’s great for warding off acne-causing bacteria; alphahydroxy acids such as glycolic acid, lactic acid and malic acid that exfoliates the skin to reveal new skin underneath; hyaluronic acid that moisturizes, and niacinamide that helps control excessive sebum production.
