What You Need To Know About Toners
Posted on March 9, 2020
Facial toners are a step many people might skip over during their skincare routine. The most basic routine everyone should do is cleanse, tone, and moisturize. Let’s take a look at why toners are such an important step to add to your regimen!
Cleanse Check.Toners are meant to be used as the second step in your skincare, right after cleansing. It is considered the “cleanse check” because your cotton pad should come back clean if you cleansed properly! If your cotton pad comes back with makeup on it, that’s a sign that you should cleanse one more time to be confident that all of the makeup and external bacteria is off your skin.
pH Control.Toners can help to restore the pH balance of your skin after a long day of running around. Our skin naturally has a thin protective layer, but that can be broken down by products, smoking, air pollution and many other things we encounter daily. Having a toner can help reduce the effects these factors may have on the skin, keeping it clean, clear, and safe.
Close Your Pores.Toners not only work with your cleanser to get rid of excess dirt and makeup, it also re-seals your pores. When you are washing your face with warm water you are opening up your pores, which is great for removing product! But, it’s important to close those pores back up, especially in the morning before adding any makeup. It will ensure that makeup products are sitting on top of your skin, not in it clogging your pores.
Great For Acne.Toners are great for every skin type, for the reasons above and for preventing breakouts. If you are already experiencing acne-prone skin, the right toner could be the solution to clearing up your skin! It’s always important to search for an alcohol-free solution. Alcohol can strip the skin from its natural oils and vitamins, drying you out and irritating sensitive skin. Acne-prone people should look for toners with AHA and salicylic acids, while other skin types might look for hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C.
We hope these facts persuade you to add a toner to your routine! If you’re looking for the perfect toner for your skin type, shop our toners HERE!
