Toners are often misunderstood. Their use is also underestimated, and a lot of people are still unaware of the amazing benefits a great toner provides.
WHAT YOUR TONER SHOULDN'T BE DOING:
Your toner shouldn't sting or dry out your skin like many harsh toxic chemical-filled ones at the store. This isn't an aftershave, after all! Your toner should also not leave your skin alkaline because your skin is naturally between a 5.5-5.9 pH. Instead, a great toner should leave your skin feeling soft, plump and glowy.
Your toner should also be professionally formulated for not only the pH balancing effect, but it should also have an effective preservative to ensure you aren't spraying harmful bacteria all over your face (a big concern in the natural beauty products industry)
The only time a toner shouldn't be professionally formulated is if you are mixing a fresh diy toner that uses an acidic ingredient like ACV for yourself regularly and keeping it refrigerated, and use it within a few days to a week. But who has the time for that hassle these days? You're better off saving time, and getting much better results with a professionally made stable one with loads of beneficial actives that you can't get OTC or find in your pantry.
WHAT A TONER SHOULD DO:
A great toner:
Feeds skin essential building blocks and antioxidants
Balances the pH of your skin
Reduces the appearance of pores
Adds a layer of protection
PRIME BEFORE YOU PAINT? WHY PH MATTERS.
Arguably the most important role of a toner is to balance the pH of your skin after cleansing. Cleansers can dry your skin because they are inherently alkaline. By using a toner you'll bring the pH of your skin back to its natural levels between 5.5-5.9. In other words, by having a great toner in your daily skincare routine, you're serving your skin by giving it a taste and priming and prepping it to better absorb beneficial ingredients from products such as serums and moisturizers. Think of it as a primer you put on before painting a wall. The paint (your serum and moisturizers) will work so much better and effectively after the primer has been applied. Now don't worry, there is hardly any prep involved. No need to lay down a bunch of drop cloths and put on coveralls!
BE LAVISH - WHEN IT COMES TO TONER, MORE IS MORE
As much as we love the beauty of simplicity, and recognize that there are times when less is more, in the case of toner - MORE IS MORE! Since toner is not a rinse off product, we jam-packed our formulation by loading each bottle with beneficial acids, antioxidants, cosmeceuticals, and anti-inflammatories so you get as much value as possible from every spritz.
A TONER THAT IS BENEFICIAL FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
A terrifically formulated toner with high-impact and well balanced ingredients can actually serve as a one-stop solution for some people with an oily skin type who are short on time. A couple spritzes after cleansing your face will give your skin a dose of hydration, pH balancing, beneficial cosmeceuticals, tightened pores, and a layer of protection. Is it as effective as a full skin care regimen? No, but if I had to choose one facial staple for someone with oily skin, this would be it. Just like the earlier paint analogy, applying a coat of primer is 10x better than nothing at all.
Our revitalizing facial toner was formulated to be effective for ALL skin types and ticks all the toner checklist boxes.
THE BEST PART: FACIAL TONER IS SUPER CONVENIENT!
Just apply 2-3 spritzes after cleansing your skin and gently pat this fast-penetrating elixir on your face. If using a gel toner, you may spread on your palms, then apply to your face in an upward circular padding motion. You will immediately feel the cool burst of revitalizing hydration similar to quenching your thirst after a strenuous day in the heat. A few seconds later, once your skin has absorbed the toner, you will feel an immediate change in the texture and smoothness of your skin. Hello baby face!
