Wondering how to get that natural glow on your face? You’re probably forgetting the most important step in your skin care routine – toning!
Some of us are just not able to understand the importance of skin care steps like cleansing, moisturizing and even toning. Should we cleanse our skin every day? What difference does it make to the skin? Is moisturizing really important? What makes toning the most important step? How and when exactly do we use a toner?
There are multiple questions that we usually come up with but before getting into the details and answering these, let’s just get one thing straight: toner is really important for the skin! This post will explain you in detail why a good toner is a must have in your skincare regimen!
How Important is Toning for the Skin?
In simple words toning helps you finish your cleansing process. Once you exfoliate your skin and cleanse it, you think your skin is clean and clear. But, that’s not the case. There is a little dirt, oil, makeup or grime that is left behind by the cleanser so a toner helps you remove all the leftover residue and clears the pores too. Toning also helps reduce the chance of blackheads, acne breakout and ingrown hair on your skin. Toners prevent the appearance of ageing on your skin too! It also helps your skin maintain pH balance. Your skin tends to lose the its natural pH level due to environmental factors, excessive use of makeup or even daily stressors. With a neutral pH level, the skin replenishes your natural flow and your skin feels more smooth and fresh. Toners also prepare the skin to fully absorb the benefits of all beauty products that you use after that like serums, gels and creams applied afterwards.
With a bunch of benefits that your toner is going to offer you, do you think you’ll skip this step? Nah! Not a good idea.
What’s the right time to apply toners?
Right after cleansing, you should apply your daily toner. This should be before you apply your moisturizer, serum gel or any other cream. Toners also work great as a makeup setting spray, freshener and even as a primer before your apply your makeup. Keeps your skin fresh throughout the day!
What’s the right toner for your skin?
- If your skin is dry, you need a toner which has a very light hydrating and soothing formula. So, look for toners with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera that are super gentle for the skin.
- If your skin is oily, you need to look for toners with ingredients like AHAs, glycolic acids, witch hazel and vitamin C.
- If your skin is dull or pale, your need to look for toners that have ingredients like vitamin c, rose, papaya extract and lactic acid.
