Benefits of using facial toner
Are you really familiar with the benefits of toners and why they are an important part of your skincare routine? In this article, we're going to explain what it is, how to use it, and what to look for when choosing one.
What is toner?
A toner is a water-based solution that balances the PH level of your skin. In order to deliver the most hydration, they should be applied directly after cleansing, even out the skin's porosity and prepare the skin for what comes next. In addition to acting as a primer, toner also helps serums and moisturisers penetrate the skin more deeply.
Why is toner beneficial?
As part of your skincare routine, toners can be used to deliver additional nutrients and benefits.
Consider these six benefits when choosing a facial toner:
1. Balances your skin
A toner helps balance your skin, so it does not feel tight or dry after cleansing. The purpose of toner is to remove any residue left on the skin after cleansing. It is traditionally applied with cotton pads. With Dermalogica PreCleanse and Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, no residue or dirt is left on the skin, allowing toners to be sprayed onto the skin to add hydration and balance your skin's condition.
2. Provides the fastest skin boost
On a hot day, after yoga class or when you hit your midday slump at the office, face mist keeps your skin feeling cool and refreshed.
A variety of skin care products promise to keep your skin hydrated and moisturised, but it is important to choose one that works for you. If you want to achieve this, you should look for products that contain Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramid, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Rose Water Oil, and other moisturising agents.
Choosing the right antioxidant for the skin can be difficult. Some may not be as effective as others, and some might even irritate the skin. Using botanically sourced toner prevents free radical damage by creating a protective antioxidant shield.
This refreshing toner minimises visible pores and reduces excess oil. Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3, reduces the appearance of pores, brightens skin, and evens skin tone, while Witch Hazel, Green Tea, and Matricaria Flower Extracts tighten pores.
How often should toner be used?
How to use toner?
The Dermalogica toners come in sprays and mists, so you can spray them directly on your skin. Make sure you hold the mist bottle 6-8 inches away from your face and spray it at least 2-3 times. Let your skin air-dry for a minute, then follow with your regular skincare routine - moisturisers, serums, eye creams, sunscreen, etc.
