How Important Is A Toner For Your Face? This Is Why You Need A Toner As A Part Of Your Beauty Regimen!

Some of you have blindly added it to your facial routine because you saw your favorite influencer use it when you don’t even know what it does or how to apply it to achieve maximum effect. Some of you do not even know what we are talking about and are very clueless.

Well, as usual, its kuulpeeps to the rescue. Here’s everything you need to know about using a toner.

What really is a toner?

A face toner is used after washing your face but before moisturizing it. They are basically water based and may have alcohol-free formulas in it. Toners are necessary for people with oily skin or acne prone skin.

What does it do for your face?

It acts as a moisturizer

Some toners are humectants, which means they help to bind moisture to the skin (that’s why you apply it before applying your moisturizer)

It shrinks pores

Applying a small amount of toner to a soft cotton ball or pad and gently blotting and wiping your face with it will remove oil and give the appearance of smaller pores.

Gets rid of excess oils

Applying toners rids the skin of excess oil and stubborn dirt or makeup leftover on your face after you wash it.

Restores the pH of your skin

The skin is fairly acidic but the pH changes sometimes because of the types of soap we use on our faces. When this happens, your skin needs to work overtime to return to its normal levels (and that may result in oil), but using a toner can help restore this balance quickly.

What should you look for in a face toner?

  • Rosewater for hydration
  • Chamomile for soothing
  • Tea tree oil to fight oil and bacteria
  • Aloe vera to calm inflammation and redness
  • Vitamin E for hydration
  • Plant stem cells for antioxidants and anti-aging properties

How do you use a toner?

Wet a cotton pad with toner, then swipe it over your entire face, neck, and chest. You should use the toner after washing your face, and before using moisturizer. You can also wet your hands with toner and pat it gently on your skin, too. You can decide to use it twice a day so far as your face can tolerate the formulation.
