Why Use a Toner?
Toners help to facilitate and add value to the rest of your routine. Many people choose to skip this step in their skincare regime, but using a toner can really enhance the effectiveness of the other products you use.
A good skin care routine doesn’t need to be time consuming or complicated, but it should contain products that are right for you and that work hard for your skin type. Toners can be seen as the dressing on a salad; they enhance the rest of your routine and improve your complexion. They help to rebalance, refine, refresh, hydrate, smooth, soothe and calm skin.
What Should I Look for in a Toner?
Toners are multitasking products that can address numerous skin issues:
- If you have dry skin, look for hyaluronic acid, hydrating botanicals extracts or glycerin
- Those who want to soothe and calm skin should opt for toner with ingredients such as aloe vera, lavender or chamomile
- Acid toners are great to keep skin exfoliated and fresh without having to use a grainy formula, look for glycolic acid, lactic acid or amino fruit acids.
Regardless of the formula you opt for, a toner should leave skin fresh and prepped for the next stage of your routine.
