Do I really need to use toner?

If you are looking to improve your skin care regime by adding a toner to it, you are making the right decision.

You may ask yourself "What does a toner do? Do i need it?” Let’s answer these questions and see if you really need to add a toner to your daily routine.

What is a Toner?

A typical face toner restores pH balance of your skin. It also cleanses the skin by removing dust particles and any makeup traces.

The latest toners have ingredients that can tighten pores and make your skin smooth. These toners can also contain specific ingredients to target specific issues. Some target acne while others have properties that can diminish blemishes.

What does Toner do?

Without a toner, the PH balance of your skin changes due to cleansers and soaps.  It could lead to inflammation and dryness. If you let your skin stay like this, it will age quicker than normal.

Benefits of toner

  • Restore pH balance
  • Enhances the absorption of moisturiser
  • Tightens pores
  • Improves skin tone
  • Removes debris
  • Gives you a quick refreshing lift
  • Hydrates your skin
  • Protects your skin against bacteria

How To Use a Toner

Simply pour a few drops and use a cotton pad to spread the toner on your skin. When spreading the toner, put a little pressure on the cotton pad so that the toner absorbs into the pores. Be sure not to put too much pressure otherwise you will damage your skin. Gently pat-dry your skin with your fingertips.

Choosing a Toner

It seems like the million-dollar question, but Kskin has the answer.

My Conclusion

A lot of us seem to underestimate the effects of using a good toner, but I urge you to please use it! Toner not only removes excess dirt and oil from your face but also enhances the absorption of moisturiser on the skin, maximising the effects of your precious moisturiser or face cream...
