Do you use a toner as part of your daily skin care regime? Many people do not use a toner because they are unsure of why they should use it and when they should use it.
The benefits of using a toner regularly
You should use a toner as part of your daily skin care regime as it adjusts the PH of your skin and prepares your skin for optimum absorption of other skin care products. A good toner also gives your skin a taut, cool and refreshed feel. It removes the outer layers of oils from your skin and it is the perfect way to prepare your skin for the day.
Most toners usually contain alcohol and water and other ingredients chosen to suit your skin type. Toners for dry skin tend to have less alcohol (which dries skin) and include more moisturisers.
You should use a toner after cleansing to help remove any grime and oils from your skin surface. They help to freshen and tighten your face, prior to applying a moisturiser and make-up.
After cleansing in the morning and evening, we recommend you using a toner such as Obagi Nu-Derm® Toner. Just apply it to a cotton pad and then wipe over your face and neck. You do not have to rinse it off after applying.
If you start to use a toner regularly it can make a real difference to how your skin looks and feels. Make sure that you find a toner suitable for your skin type and if you are unsure as to which to buy then please call us to arrange a FREE skin consultation.
