Tone It Up!

Tone It Up!

Having a toned body is something EVERYONE thinks about. Right!

But let’s talk about a different kind of toner. Just like our bodies need good nutrition to be fit, our skin needs nourishment to stay AND look healthy. The optimal pH of our skin is 5.5 and can be thrown off by cleansers, but by using a toner it can help restore your natural pH level. Let’s break it down:

What is a toner?

A toner is usually a water-based skin care product that includes plant extracts and essential oils that are tailored to address a variety of skin types. Natural water-based toners have become an essential part of skin care regimes. They are derived through steam-distillation of flowers and other ingredients that are known to be good for your skin.

What does a skin toner do?

Regular use of toners can really change your skin for the better, restoring the pH balance of your skin to the optimal 5.5. When you use toner on your face regularly, the optimum pH level (acid mantle) is maintained which acts as a barrier to germs and bacteria while keeping the skin moisturized and healthy.

Toner tightens the pores of your skin:

Dirt and oil enter the skin when the pores are large. These impurities make the skin more prone to acne and infections. Regular use of toner tightens the pores and shrinks their overall size reducing the oil and toxins that settle on the skin creating a fresher and cleaner look. When using a toner, your skin will become visibly smoother and become harder for debris to penetrate it.

Toner helps in complete cleansing:

Even after cleansing, some of the impurities remain on the skin. This might be the residual makeup or some of the oil content left behind by the cleansers. An essential purpose of a toner is to get rid of them and to clean the pores from within. Toners also remove environmental toxins and chemical residues from your skin.

Toner hydrates and nourishes the skin:

There is a reason why toning is done right after cleansing and just before moisturizing. The hydrating ingredients present in the toner preps the skin to absorb the moisturizers better. The skin is usually tight and dry right after cleansing. Moist skin can better absorb topical products than dry skin. Hence, toning ensures that your favorite moisturizer can nourish your skin deeply.

How & When to use a Toner
