Cleansing, toning and moisturizing are the basic three steps in a beauty routine. Many would take the extra effort in cleansing and moisturizing, but leave facial toner out of their beauty routine.
Toning is one of the most effective ways to achieve and maintain healthy skin, and compare to other skincare, it is probably the least expensive step in your beauty routine. Sadly, many people choose to skip this step in their beauty routine not knowing the importance of toning their skin.
5 Benefits of using Facial Toner
Here are some benefits of using a toner.
Facial Toner act as Extra Cleansing for Your Skin.
Yes, I know many of you would double cleanse your face. But if you want extra cleansing, facial toner can help to remove any excess dirt that is too stubborn to be washed away by your cleanser. Apply a small amount of facial toner onto your cotton pad and gently wipe your face. You’ll know your face has been thoroughly cleansed when there isn’t any dirt or impurities found on the cotton pad.
Facial Toner helps to shrink the pores.
By removing excess oil and dirt, your pores will be able to breathe better and improve the condition of enlarged pores. Over time, the appearance of your pores will be smaller.
Refreshes Your Skin
Whenever your skin feels oily or is in need of a wash due to dirt, swipe some facial toner across your face. Your skin will feel more revitalized, and you can even do this when you are on-the-go!
Helps Prep Your Skin to Absorb Products Better
Facial toner also acts as a softener to your skin. It help to prep your skin by removing clogging impurities so that your skin can absorb better whatever skincare you’ll be applying next.
Soothes, Repairs and Smooths the Skin
Facial toner can help improve blemishes and minimize any signs of redness and inflammation.
Same as cleansing, toning should be done twice daily. However, if you don’t have the time to spare, once a day is good enough too.
Keep doing this on the daily and you’ll start to notice a healthier looking skin!
