What are the Benefits of a Facial Toner ?
Have you ever thought why we need a Facial Toner after cleansing ? A Toner plays several important roles on your skin. Let's find out the reasons why we need a toner.
Balances Skin's pH level
pH is measured from 1-14. 7 is neutral, anything above 7 is alkaline and anything below 7 is acidic. the skin’s optimal pH is 5.5 - this pH level keeps the skin looking radiant and also resists harmful bacteria.
However, that pH balance goes to be alkaline after cleansing due to the alkaline nature of soap. When this happens, your skin needs to work overtime to return to its normal, optimal levels, but using a toner can help restore this balance quickly. The toners will be at optimal level or slightly acidic to balance your probably slightly alkaline skin after washing.
Large facial pores allow more dirt, oil and toxins to enter the skin and cause irritation and infections. Facial toners tighten the pores, allowing fewer oils and toxins to settle into the skin. This creates a fresher, cleaner and less oily appearance while making the skin vibrant, younger looking skin.
Protects skin against bacteria
Toners can help close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing, reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It creates the first layer of defense against harmful bacteria.
Hydrates and nourishes the skin
Facial toners provide hydration to your skin, which is essential to maintaining elasticity, smoothness, moisture and a more youthful appearance. Proper skin hydration reduces the signs of aging skin and provides an effective base for the application of facial cosmetics. Many facial toners also provide vitamins and other essential skin nutrients to keep your skin healthy and balanced. Also, toning the skin helps the facial serum penetrate into skin easily.
Refreshes the skin
Toners clean and purify the skin. It will leave your skin revitalized.
Soothes and calms skin
Toners soothe and calm irritated + inflamed or itchy skin. It is great for sun burned skin or the skin after shaving too.
Prevents ingrown hair
If you spray facial toners to the areas of your body after shaving, it soothes the irritated skin and also prevents ingrown hair (Ingrown hair is hair that grows into the skin instead of outward after hair removal such as shaving, waxing or tweezing. It can cause itchy, painful red bumps similar to pimples).
