The Importance of Toners
We all tend to use cleansers, serums, moisturizers, and sunscreen, but one crucial product that is often forgotten is toner. Why is it forgotten? We believe that this product is often forgotten because people do not understand the purpose of a toner, luckily, we are here to tell you why it’s so important!
What Are Toners and What Are They Used for?
There is a common misconception that toners do nothing, but they actually do a lot for your skin. Just like moisturizers, cleansers, and serums, there are different toners for different skin types. Each toner has different ingredients ranging from antioxidants to anti-inflammatories.
The purpose of toners is to balance the skins pH levels. Skin has a pH balance ranging from 0 to 14. The lower the pH, the more acidic (oily skin) your skin will be. The higher the pH, the more alkaline (dry skin) your skin will be. A perfect pH for the skin is 5.5, however, most people’s pH levels are anywhere between 4 – 6.
Cleansers are one of the reasons why our pH levels get thrown off balance, which is why toners should be applied right after cleansing the skin! They will help to balance your pH and to prep your skin for the next steps in your skincare regimen.
What Toner Should I Use?
As mentioned above, there are toners for just about everything! There are toners for people who suffer from dry skin, oily skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more.
