What Is A Face Toner & Why Should You Use One?
Have you ever considered incorporating a face toner into your beauty routine? Despite being a crucial step in any skincare regimen, face toner is often overlooked or misunderstood. In this blog post, we'll explain why face toner is so important and how it can benefit your skin.
What is a Face Toner?
Face toner is a liquid that's applied to the skin after cleansing and before moisturizing. It's designed to remove any remaining dirt, oil, or makeup that your cleanser may have missed.
But that's not all it does. Face toner also helps to balance the pH level of your skin, which can be disrupted by harsh cleansers. By restoring your skin's natural pH level, face toner can help prevent breakouts and irritation.
Benefits of Face Toner
In addition to balancing your skin's pH level, facial toner has many other benefits. Here are just a few:
1. Hydrates and nourishes: Many face toners contain hydrating ingredients (we use vegetable glycerin in our toner), which help to hydrate and nourish your skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.
2. Tightens pores: If you struggle with large pores, face toner can help to tightens your pores, making them less visible and reducing the likelihood of clogging.
3. Prepares skin for other products: By removing any remaining dirt or oil, face toner prepares your skin for the next steps in your skincare routine. This means that your moisturizer, face oil, or other treatment product will be more effective.
How to a Use Face Toner
Simply apply a small amount to a cotton pad and gently swipe it over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. To keep your skin hydrated, apply a face your while your skin is still damp. This will allow the face oil to lock in the moisture from your toner.
