Skin Care Routine: 5 Ways You Can Use a Soothing Toner

It's not hard to find lotion in the skin care aisle of your local drugstore. So, you may be asking yourself why you need a toner in your life and skincare routine. Let’s start by talking about what a toner is and how it can benefit your skin.

What is a Toner?

What is it? A toner is a liquid that has been used for centuries as an after cleansing rinse or face astringent. It can also be used as part of a skincare routine to cleanse and refresh your skin. 

This blog post will discuss five simple ways you can incorporate soothing toners in your day-to-day life!

Oil and Makeup Removal

Oil and makeup removal should be a daily ritual; and toners are a practical option for those who have little to no time in the morning or evening to do so. Facial toners will remove any oils or makeup residue leftover from applying your moisturizer at night (since it won't thoroughly soak into your skin). A quick splash of toner to a cotton pad and swipe across your face will ensure you have clean, radiant skin.

Minimize Pores

Pores on the skin are natural and normal. They're one of the many features that make your face unique to you! Toner is a substance made with water, but it can also have various additives to address specific skin conditions or needs. For example, toners often contain ingredients like witch hazel which helps remove oil from pores, soothe redness, or tighten skin. After cleansing, they can be applied with a cotton pad to the face and neck to remove dirt and excess oil from pores, leaving them tight and clean. Toners also provide an instant pick-me-up by refreshing your skin!

Prevention: Make sure you're using gentle cleansers that won't strip your skin of moisture. Treatment: Use a toner to remove dirt and oil from pores, leaving them clean and tight.

Start Your Day with a Fresh Face

No matter what time of day it is or how tired you are, your skin can always use refreshment. Whether you're getting up in the morning after a long night's sleep, or if you're going into work with an early start on your schedule - there should never be any reason for dry skin! If nothing else works best for your skin type, then a soothing toner should always be available.

Add Moisture to Your Skin

Use a facial toner to soothe and hydrate your skin. Toners are alcohol-free, water-based liquids that gently remove any excess dirt or makeup from the surface of your skin after cleansing and before moisturizing.

You can use them with cotton pads for more targeted application on areas like under the eyes or around the mouth where wrinkles are most prominent. In addition, some toners contain a cocktail of skin-benefiting ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and plant extracts that can help to heal acne, improve texture or keep your skin hydrated all day long.

Soothe Your Skin

A soothing toner is a great way to ensure that your cleansing routine doesn't strip away too much of the natural oils in your skin. There are many different types available, but it's important to look for one with ingredients like aloe or green tea extract. These ingredients will help cool and soothe inflamed acne-prone skin.

It is important to remember that you should apply your toner after you cleanse but before you moisturize. It can also be used on its own, if desired, as an exercise in personal hygiene and stress management!
