What is a Toner?

Toner is a skincare product designed to clarify, impart nutrients, or add humectants to the skin. This product removes dirt, makeup, and oil from the skin to cleanse and minimize the appearance of pores. This liquid formula can address various skin concerns and goals. Many toners are formulated with antioxidants to brighten your skin’s appearance and reduce visible redness.

What Does Toner Do?

Toners are well-known products formulated to remove irritants and debris from the skin. Initially known as astringents, toners historically were alcohol based and were previously known for their drying properties. Nowadays, the new toners remove dirt and oil and nourish the skin. Toners can also act as a primer before using serums, moisturizers, and other skincare products. They are very different from traditional toners. 

Is a Toner Necessary?

Toner is an excellent product for removing dirt and oils from your skin that your cleanser does not.  Whether you want extra cleansing, hydration, or clearer-looking skin, toners are a great addition to your skincare routine. 

Benefits of Toner

Removes Excess Dirt

Cleansers typically remove debris from the surface of the skin but do not always remove every bit of makeup and dirt. Toners are formulated with solutions to help remove stubborn residues.

 Helps with Environmental Concerns 

Your skin's pH level may affect how your skin looks. Pollution and skincare products with high pH levels (more alkaline formulas) can disrupt skin’s natural moisturizing factors and contribute to dehydrated-looking skin. Toners contain ingredients that can help with the skin's natural acidic state, A slightly acidic pH is optimal for healthy-looking skin.

Visibly Hydrates Skin

Toners can add moisture to your skin with various hydrating ingredients, such as rose water or aloe vera. Toners help against environmental aggressors, allowing the skin to look plump and moisturized.

Improves Efficiency of Other Products

After using a toner, your other skincare products will be more effective. Toners may also have antioxidant properties, allowing for a more even-looking and brighter complexion.

Can Exfoliate Skin

Using a toner with AHAs or BHAs can help exfoliate the skin. This allows for a smooth texture and more radiant-looking skin.
