A lot of people have a misconception of what a toner should be. Some think it’s just their final rinse after their cleanser.
A toner is a water-based liquid that completes the three-step skincare routine: Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing.
A toner will clear away traces of dirt and excess oil but its benefits go so much more than that. A toner brings your skin back in balance by regulating pH, helping to strengthen the skin barrier and hydrate! They also remove dead skin cells to unclog pores and minimize their appearance, add a protective layer to the skin and prevent dirt and oil from getting into it thereby preventing acne, skin irritation, dark spots & dull skin. They make skin look clear, smooth, and refined. Many toners have antioxidant ingredients that help protect skin from age-accelerating free radicals encountered daily! Natural humectants, toners attract water molecules like magic which gives a soft, supple, and moisturized skin.
But the most helpful thing about toners is it preps the skin for the rest of your products! The secret bonus of a toner is prepping your skin for better absorption of follow-on products. So when you apply a serum after using a toner, it will be better able to reach the cellular level where it can get to work to produce positive changes in your skin. Skip the toner and you undercut the effectiveness of your serums and creams!
