Using a good toner on your face has many benefits to the health and appearance of your skin. In order to have healthy skin it is a must to regularly cleanse and moisturize, toners also have a very important part in your daily regimen. Always use an organic product for the optimum health of your skin. Products containing alcohol can be terribly drying and therefore detrimental to moisturizing and combating wrinkles.
Here are some of the reasons toner is very important to the health of your skin:
Hydration: Look for ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera Gel, NO ALCOHOL. Moisture in your skin is essential to maintaining elasticity, smoothness and a more youthful appearance. These toners are also beneficial in the summertime. After coming in out of the sun spray toner on your skin to prevent sunburn damage and to get rid of that dry tight feeling your skin gets from too much sun.
Tightening and Toning: Facial Toners will assist in tightening your facial pores. The larger your pores the more dirt and toxins enter the skin that will cause irritations and infections. Toners will help prevent an oily appearance and also help to prevent acne. Look for ingredients such as Grapeseed Extract and Witch Hazel.
PH Balance: Facial Toners help to balance PH (potential hydrogen) levels in your skin. PH levels measure the acidity level of your skin and are measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with 7 being the most neutral level. When your skin is balanced it is less likely to be prone to oiliness and infection.
Detoxification: Toners will remove any last trace of soap, makeup, oil and grime. Facial toners will help to remove environmental toxins such as smoke, smog and other chemical residues from your skin. By removing excess oils from your skin it will help to reduce the amount of facial blemishes and acne you may have and help prevent future breakouts.
I recommend using a Toner with a sprayer. Directions for use are simple, first cleanse your face with a Natural or Organic Cleanser then spray on your favorite Natural or Organic Toner. You may then use a cotton ball or cotton square to spread the toner evenly to your face and neck area.
