When it comes to our daily skincare routine, most of us have the cleansing and moisturising part down pat, but there may be one vital step that you’re skipping – toning. A hydrating facial mist toner is particularly beneficial for those with oily or acne-prone skin, but everyone can benefit from the additional purification and protection of a toner. Read on to discover six benefits of using a toner every day.
- Removes impurities
While a deep cream cleanser or micellar water is great for removing daily grime and make-up, there can be unseen particles left behind after washing your face. By applying a toner after cleansing, you’re getting rid of every last impurity.
- Closes pores
After washing your face in warm water, your pores are more open. A natural toner that contains rose water and witch hazel will help to close those pores, for a smoother, more blemish-free complexion.
- Soothes the skin
If you’re prone to redness or inflammation, seek out a toner that contains rose water and calendula, both of which contain anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin of redness and irritation, and help maintain the skin’s natural pH balance.
- Reduces skin blemishes
Witch hazel and calendula are natural astringents with antibacterial properties, so they are nature’s secret weapon in the fight against spots and acne.
- Cuts through the oil
A crucial step if you’re prone to oily skin, a toner that contains green tea and rose water will fight excess oil for a shine-free face.
- Hydrates and protects
While some chemical-packed toners dry out the skin, a hydrating toner made with natural ingredients will nourish and refresh the skin, adding an additional layer of protection to your face.
