Toners have been rising in popularity, with many skincare professionals recommending them as an important addition to any skincare routine. Traditionally, Toners contains high levels of alcohol which dry out the skin, leading to premature ageing, skin irritation and flare-ups. However, most brands now offer much gentler products, that provide great results.
Hydration is one of the most important parts of your skincare, and can help improve skin texture, tone and elasticity - meaning less fine lines and wrinkles! Putting the much-needed moisture back into the skin is one of the key qualities of a good Toner.
Toners are also effective at balancing the skin’s pH level, which can help your skin to be less prone to oiliness and infection, and creating a more vibrant and smoother appearance. pH levels are an indication of the acidity level of your skin and are measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with 7 being considered a neutral reading for your skin’s pH level.
Toning helps to calm and balance the skin and prepare it for your next important step – applying a night cream or moisturiser. Applying a cream after toning helps to ‘lock’ in all the goodness and hydration of your Toner. Cleanse, Tone, Serum and Moisturise. Your skin will love you for it.
