TONERS: ANSWERING EVERY DOUBT YOU EVER HAD ABOUT THEM
We often come across thin, spritz bottles containing water-like solutions. We usually end up buying them and use them on our skin regularly, mostly out of habit or peer pressure. Most of us don’t even know what it does or how often we can use it. Today we will talk about these curiously miraculous little products called TONERS.
What are they?
Toners are secret weapons of the cosmetic industry. They are water- based liquid form and are infused with skin soothing, skin improving or refreshing ingredients like Frankincense, Eucalyptus, Lemon etc. They help the skin retain its moisture while preparing it to imbibe the effects of your face moisturizer.
There is another product available in the market called Astringent. People often confuse toners with them. However, the main difference between the two is that astringent contains alcohol in them and is used mostly to remove excess sebum off the face. Astringent should not be used by people with sensitive skin as it tends to sting.
What does a toner do?
Toners are known to remove any last traces of dirt and grime off the skin after washing your face.It gently refreshes your skin without stripping it of its natural moisturization. When you add toners to your daily routine, you are able to see some extremely positive impacts on your skin. Some of the benefits include:
- Reduction in skin pore size (Hello, Firm skin!)
- Restores pH level in skin
- Refines rough patches
- Improved skin tone
Isn’t that just amazing?
Who can use a toner?
EVERYONE!!! Literally every person can use a face toner (and we are being gender- neutral here!). If you have oily skin or love doing make- up, toners are your best friends. They deep clean those invisible dirt and help close up pores.
The best way to use a toner is either to soak a cotton ball in toner and gently sweep across your face every morning after cleansing or at night before going to bed. Toning should ideally be your second step in your cleansing process to ensure you benefit maximum from it.
How to choose your toner?
Now that you know what toners are and what their benefits are, it is important to know how to identify which toner is right for you.
