Do I really need to use a toner?
In the morning, it can be tempting to skip a couple of steps in your facial routine. You’ve slept in, you’re rushing around trying to not be late for work, and it’s more likely that you’ll sacrifice your cleansing routine than say, breakfast, coffee or your makeup.
Toner is the most obvious step that people neglect and it’s common for people to question whether they even need to use a toner. Whilst it might feel like a pointless step in your cleansing routine, you really should make the time and effort to include it – trust us, you and your skin will thank us.
So what does toner actually do?
Well, toners act as a secondary cleaner; removing any remaining grime or indeed cleanser that is blocking your pores. If you regularly wear makeup, it’s important to use a toner as just using a cleanser doesn’t always thoroughly remove every last bit.
But toners serve a multitude of other purposes. Cleansing can sometimes leave you skin a little dry and toners replace the moisture that is lost during this process to ensure your skin stays hydrated.
Toners also help to minimise the appearance of pores which can be the bane of some people’s lives. When you cleanse your pores open but by using a toner you can ensure they close again, meaning no dirt and grime can get in there and start clogging them again. This leaves your face feeling flawless and refreshed.
And if that wasn’t enough, you can even use toners as a little face mist over your makeup to wake up your skin, and revive your makeup.
So when you think to yourself, do I really need to use toner? The answer is a resounding yes! You can find our range of facial flower toners under our skin care products range.
