A toner for men, a liquid that's applied after cleanser is removed, helps to kill bacteria in the skin, rebalance the skin's pH, sooth and hydrate the skin and remove any dirt remaining on the skin.
Men's toners typically utilize various oils and botanical extracts to treat different skin issues. Tea tree oil, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are used in toners for acne. Chamomile is often used for dry and sensitive skins. A lightening toner will use glycolic acid, kojic acid and botanical extracts to brighten the complexion.
