Sensitive Skin Care: 3 Benefits of Using Facial Toners

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, but your face is the most exposed part of your skin. UV rays from sunlight; dirt and grime we pick up from running errands or working outside; the sweat that beads across your brow to let you know you are really killing that workout: your face has to endure it all! Even the makeup you choose can put your skin through its paces day-to-day. That is why facial toners are so important when it comes to keeping up your skincare routine. 

What Are Facial Toners and What Do They Do? 

Simply put, a facial toner--or “toner” for short--refers to any lotion or tonic wash that cleans your skin, especially your face. It not only cleans your skin, it also shrinks the appearance of pores, moisturizes, revitalizes, and can even help protect your skin. A toner is applied easily. You can use a cotton ball or swab, spray toner on your face and wipe clean, or even use a facial mask to really get that cleaning power deep into your pores. Once the toner has dried on the skin, it is recommended to apply lotion for further benefits. 

Speaking of benefits, there are multiple benefits you will see and feel instantly once you start incorporating toners into your facial care routine. What does facial toner do? These are its key properties:

1. Cleansing

Toners have amazing cleansing properties that can wash away oil, dirt, and makeup from the skin’s surface--as well as facial pores. Because toners can help flush all that grimey stuff out of your pores, they will look smaller and leave a more luminous impression on your skin. 

2. Health

There is a laundry list of health benefits for your skin when it comes to using facial toners. Toner’s formulas can help your skin recover and fend off environmental stressors, and when used with your moisturizer can prime your skin to soak up all the hydration it needs.

3. It Just Feels Good! 

From uplifting aromas to revitalizing ingredients, toners are a great way to pamper your skin with recovery and rejuvenation. This makes them an ideal way to start (or end) your day in an uplifting way.

Getting Started 

Incorporating a toner into your daily routine is quick and easy. You will want to find the toner that is right for your skin type. For example, someone with sensitive skin would want to pay attention to natural ingredients that are not too astringent for their skin. Once you have finished playing matchmaker, it is time to pamper and rejuvenate. Use your toner twice a day when washing your face, but try not to go over this recommended amount, as even the most perfect toner can dry out your skin if used too often. Finish up with a moisturizer that compliments your toner to best experience its hydrating properties.

All in All 

Toners are game changers. A spritz and a splash can go a long way when it comes to taking care of your skin. They calm your skin, reduce pores, leave your skin refreshed, and just feel good! You face the elements constantly, but toners are phenomenal for leaving you with that pampered feeling. A great place to start is our Refreshment Spritz because it relies on plant extracts to protect, nourish, hydrate, and soothe your skin. The essential oils we included offer you an aromatherapy sensory experience bonus. So whether you are looking to round out your daily skincare routine or just need a refreshing pick me up, the perfect toner is just what you need. Experience the difference that toner gives you; other people will notice it, too!
