Did you know that toners are one of the most important steps in your skincare regimen? At the age of 14, I think every girl was on the Clinique 3-step basic skin care system or Sea Breeze. (I bet you forgot about Sea Breeze didn’t you?! HA!) Who can forget that toner packed with alcohol? But since then, it’s been such a misconception as a toner being “drying” to the skin, when in fact; it’s an essential step to any skin care regimen. Toners give the upper layers of the skin an instant boost of hydration.
Here are 5 benefits of toners and why you should add them into your daily regimen:
Gives your skin pH balance
After cleansing, the pH balance of your skin gets disturbed. Your skin is working overtime to restore the balance, but toners help restore your pH balance to its natural pH level.
Removes drying chlorines and minerals
Tap water contains a ton of chlorine, minerals and chemicals to make it safe to drink and bath, but they also dehydrate your complexion. A mist of toner can remove chlorine and minerals found in tap water.
Not only does it give your skin a drink of moisture, they work wonders
Before applying your moisturizer, give your skin an instant boost of hydration by using a toner. It can also help calm, control oil, moisturize, combat acne-causing bacteria, stimulate collagen and provide anti-oxidant benefits. For men, they prevent ingrown hairs.
Refreshes your skin
Toners will leave your skin revitalized and help close pores and tighten cell gaps, reducing environmental contaminants into the skin.
Enhances your skin care regimen
Invest in good skin care regimen that includes a cleanser, toner, eye cream and moisturizer. Don’t look at it as a time-consuming activity; after all, it’s your moneymaker. Toners make for healthy, balanced skin that adds hydration and nutrients to repair and protect the skin’s barrier.
