The Importance of Toning
Following cleansing, a toner helps further cleanse the skin by picking up any makeup or debris that may have been left behind. It helps sweep away impurities, leaves pores clean and less noticeable, and also protects the skin.
Since different toners have different benefits, when adding a toner to your skin care regimen, select a toner based on your skin type and your skin’s needs. When you find a toner that works well with your skin, you can reap even more benefits from other products in your routine.
Dry skin types should select a toner containing hydrating ingredients. Toner prepares your skin to better accept your favorite moisturizer. Moisturizer will penetrate skin much more effectively if it’s hydrated.
If you have oily skin, select a toner that will help keep your pores unclogged, remove excess oil, and keep your skin clean.
