How to Apply Your Toner: Spray or Wipe?
Toners are generally applied on the face by either spraying or wiping, but the application method really does make a difference. While spraying your toner can be sufficient for a quick, on-the-go hydration, wiping your face with a cotton pad (or a reusable pad) that is soaked with your toner is the recommended method.
One of the major benefits of a face toner is that it can remove residue and impurities from your skin; therefore, the wiping action helps to remove traces of dirt, bacteria, makeup, and impurities that can still linger after washing your face with a cleanser.
In addition to removing residue from your cleanser, wiping your face with a toner also helps to remove minerals like sodium, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc that are found in tap water. What many people might not realize is that the impurities in your tap water can be dehydrating and irritating to the skin.
Tap water can have some ill effects on your skin, but how much depends on your skin type. If your skin is sensitive, tap water can cause dryness, irritation and even breakouts because it can clog your pores.
The good news is that a wiping action will help to remove these potentially problem-causing residues from tap water. If you spray toner on your face, you are only diluting these irritants, and not removing them, and that is why we highly recommend wiping.Our Garden Rose toner is conveniently packaged in a bottle, so you can easily wet a cotton pad with it and apply all over cleansed skin.
