The Magic of Toners
Most of us are diligent with cleansing and moisturizing our skin but how many of us are as good with toning the skin? To be honest, this is a step that I sometimes skip and as I am writing this, I realize that I am doing my skin a disservice by doing so. Are you toning your skin? If not, keep reading to understand the importance of this step and never underestimate the powerful punch this can bring to your skincare routine.
What is a toner?
Toners come in many forms, from hydrosols to essential oil sprays, or even potent swipes that act as an exfoliant. Toners of the past were made of mostly alcohol and over-drying to the skin. The new generation of toners are made mostly of water and essential oils that soothe and hydrate the skin. Think of your toner as a drink of water for your skin. They can be just the product that takes your regimen from good to great by allowing better penetration of your anti-aging serums and for normalizing your skin’s natural oil production.
More Benefits of Toning the skin:
Active ingredients to look for in botanical toners and wipes:
Ingredients to avoid: High alcohol (isopropyl alcohol, methanol, benzyl alcohol) or benzoyl peroxide. These ingredients can be too drying and irritating.
