Do men need to use a skin toner?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Toners are often used to wipe away traces of oil, dirt, and, usually in the case of women, makeup that remain on your face after you wash it. If you want to use a toner, avoid products that contain alcohol if your skin is sensitive. Even people with acne should avoid alcohol-based astringents, since these products can remove some of your skin's natural oils. Talk to your dermatologist to find out whether you should be using a skin toner, and if so, which products might be right for you.
