And Why Am I Supposed To Use a Toner?
A facial toner is considered one of the three Holy Grail steps in your skincare routine those being, cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
Your skin care routine starts with a cleanser which is followed by a toner, serum, moisturizer and or face oil. People tend to forget to tone their skin and for some reason Americans are marketed to that they don’t need a toner, they feel it is not necessary and actually think it is a silly step because of the marketing but in reality it is beyond an essential step in your skin care routine if you truly want glowing, balanced skin!
Let’s Take a Look at WHY This Silly Little Step is Sooo Important…
*Toning helps improve the look and texture of your skin thus the word “tone.”
*Increases your skin’s development of Hydrolipidic Film ( Acid Mantle), providing a protective barrier that will help your skin retain moisture and maintain the capillary walls.
*It can help you replace the vial moisture needed and bind it to the skin.
*It tightens pores which helps limit the risk of allergens, bacteria, or impurities from agitating them.
*It helps remove flaky dead skin and the last traces of dirt and makeup.
*It helps your skin maintain the proper PH ( Potential Hydrogen)which is around 5.5 to 6 so your skin can remain healthy!
*It helps prepare the skin so that your serum, moisturizer and face oil penetrate deeper to help heal, calm, plump, hydrate, even skin tone and brighten just to name a few!
