Toners were originally developed to help balance the skin's pH levels after cleansing because traditionally cleansers were highly alkaline (which can throw off the skin’s pH balance). Cleansers have come a long way thanks to cosmetic chemists, and most cleansers on the market today are much more gentle, giving toners a new role. Today’s toners are more like a “treatment” for your skin versus rebalancing the skin with ingredients that help unclog pores, treat breakouts, hyperpigmentation, dryness and oiliness.
Choosing the right type of toner is key🗝
If you have breakout-prone skin look for an exfoliating toner to use a few times a week at night (remember the golden rule, never exfoliate daily).
For Oily Prone skin look for one with Willow Bark Extract to help control oil production!
For clogged pores and hyperpigmentation, adding an AHA toner is ideal! We love the Youth to Power Toner.
For dry or dehydrated skin look for one with Hyaluronic Acid.
