Some of the most common mens skin concerns include dryness, pores, oily skin and rough skin. Sound familiar? Let's take a look at why toner might be the most fast acting, effective weapon for your skincare routine.

A lot of people have no idea what toner is, or how it helps, which means that it often gets left out of people skincare routines - especially for men. If you're not sure why your current skincare routine isn't working as well as it should, read on. Toner may well be your missing ingredient.


Toner is a fast-penetrating liquid that provides your skin with an intense boost of hydration.

How does toner help the skin?

Not only does toner deliver moisture to your skin, it helps to reduce the appearance of pores and prepare your skin to absorb the moisturise from moisturiser. It helps to remove stubborn dead cells and dirt from the surface of your skin. With smoothing and tightening effects, it helps to balance out your skins pH and your overall complexion.

Not bad for something that hardly takes any time at all...

When to use toner

Toner should be used immediately after cleansing, and before moisturising, to facilitate your skincare routine and support the role of both cleanser in cleaning your skin, and moisturiser in hydrating your skin.

How to use toner

Using toner is easy. With clean hands,

  1. pore as few as 5 drops of toner into your hands

  2. quickly clap your hands together

  3. apply evenly to the face and neck
