It can be incredibly complicated when trying to decipher what each type of skin care product is for and whether it is even necessary. Facial toners offer an important step to your skin care routine between cleansing and moisturizing. The importance of a high quality toner is that it can remove dirt and make-up that you may have missed during cleansing; it helps to tighten and tone pores; removes excess oil; and prepares the skin for moisturizing. It will even maximize the benefits of your moisturizer.
Most conventional toners are made with Isopropyl alcohol, which can be incredibly drying to the skin. Most organic facial toners are made with plant-based alcohol, which can actually add moisture to your skin. Toners are usually applied by either dabbing on with a cotton ball or spritzed directly onto your skin and allowed to air dry. Toners help to revive and balance the pH of your skin.
Facial toners are probably one of the easiest at skin care products to make at home. Everything from green tea to apple cider vinegar to cucumbers can be used as an effective way to rejuvenate your skin. When laying out your skin care routine don’t skip the toner and you are sure to see healthy, radiantly glowing skin.
