First, both toners and astringents have the same purpose. They serve as a cleanser and pH modifier. Both men and women can use toners or astringents.

However, there are some differences of these two. The difference is in their contents and in their usage. Toners don’t have alcohol content; most of the toners are made up of water, while astringents do have alcohol content. This means that toners are mild and that they can be used every day. They are often used to remove makeup and to cleanse our face. It is more advisable to use a toner when you have a normal skin. But for those who have oily skin, it is better to use an astringent.
Astringents are not recommended to use in a daily basis because it can dry out our skin. Astringents are designed to fight pimples or acne that’s why they are supposedly stronger than toners. They also help to tighten our skin. Toners help to nourish our skin and help also to keep hydrated. It is best to choose toners if you have a dry skin.

Toners and Astringents both can adjust the pH of the skin. pH changes in the skin can be useful depending on treatment products being used. For example, glycolic acid works more effectively at a lower pH. So, by using a toner that reduces the pH of the skin, the glycolic acid applied afterwards is more efficaceous. Some toners balance the pH of the skin bringing it to a neutral level (7), this is recommended for normal skin that does not need adjusting.
