If you chose to use a skin toner, I recommend a toner with an acne-fighting ingredient called glycol acid. Toner is good for oily areas on the face. Some people have dry or sensitive skin, and they should skip this toner. Some people have oily skin only in the T-zone: the forehead and the nose; they should apply toner only in the T-zone. And other people have oily skin throughout the face, and they can benefit from using a toner on the full face.

We recommend the following toner for oily skin areas on the face:

Aqua Glycol Advanced Oily Skin Therapy Toner
This toner is my all-time favorite for acne patients. It has the acne-fighting alpha-hydroxy acid glycol acid at 11% concentration. It's strong, so be sure to use it only on oily skin areas. If you have dry skin, toner is not for you. If you are oily, use it in the evening after washing your face, and you will assuredly see a reduction in acne and acne blemishes.
