Some years ago, I used to be obsessed with banishing every trace of dirt and makeup on my face. That's good, right? Well, of course! But what's bad is that I tended to use harsh astringents to do that. Not only was I more of a skin care newbie, but those astringents just worked so well that I kept using them!
What I didn't know though was that they were stripping my skin of necessary moisture and instead of helping me get rid of my then persistent acne, it would sometimes make it worse thanks to the high alcohol content they usually had. Thankfully, over time, I incorporated more gentle toners into my skin care regime and discovered that they worked just as effectively (if not better) minus the harshness.
The Himalaya Herbals Refreshing & Clarifying Toner is something I picked up on a whim. It being alcohol-free and targeted towards combination skin, which I have, sparked my interest!
Himalaya Herbals says, "An alcohol free formulation that deep cleanses pores and refreshes to keep your skin oil-free without over drying. Lentil deep cleanses pores, Citrus Limon a natural astringent and cleanser, tightens pores and Boerhavia Root extract controls excess oil secretion to leave your skin clear, soft and radiant."
