The toner’s role is probably the most misunderstood in the entire skincare regimen. Many don’t know that this step of a beauty routine is actually very beneficial for your skin: toners prepare skin for treatments and moisturizers, boost up other products’ benefits and clean skin of residue. Here are some reasons why you should use a toner: 1. It balances your skin’s pH After using cleansers, your skin’s pH balance changes to more alkaline. Applying a toner helps balance the skin’s pH to its natural 5.5 – 6 level. Having a balanced pH level means your skin stays healthy, and is less prone to oiliness and infection. 2. It tightens your pores Almost all toners help shrink and minimize the appearance of pores. It is important to keep your pores tight for a smooth appearance and flawless makeup application. At the same time, tight pores allow your skin to be prepped for additional treatments and moisturizers.It tightens your pores 3. Refreshes and deep cleans your skin “Wait, skin is not already perfectly clean after using a cleanser?” Even after using a cleanser, your skin is not completely clean. Pour a small amount of toner on a cotton ball and wipe your face. The residual dirt you see on your cotton ball is what the cleansers and the scrubbing didn’t clean up. Using a toner after washing your face is a safe, gentle way of finalizing the cleansing part of your routine. 4. Hydration and Nourishment Facial toners provide hydration to your skin, which is essential to maintaining elasticity, smoothness, moisture and a more youthful appearance. Proper skin hydration reduces the signs of aging skin and provides an effective base for the application of facial cosmetics. Many facial toners also provide vitamins and other essential skin nutrients to keep your skin healthy and balanced. Make sure you are using a toner that benefits your skin! XO Kimberley
