Beauty 101: Why You NEED a Good Toner

When it comes to makeup we can’t get enough — eyeshadows, lip liners, bronzers, contouring products — the list goes on. But when it truly comes down to maintaining beautiful skin, it’s how we treat our skin that’s the most important! We’ve heard of face washes, moisturizers, and exfoliators, but there has always been that product, the one that you pick up stare at and set back down every time you’re in the store…toner.

We’re telling you toner is the one thing your skincare regimen has been missing. Trust us, once you use it you’ll never go back. Toner helps bring your dull skin back to life and restores it to prime condition!


What Exactly Is It?

Washing your face at the end of a long day is one of the best feelings. After you wash your face your skin is craving a rush of ingredients such as antioxidants, skin repairing glycerin, ceraieds, etc. By toning your face you give your skin that little extra TLC it needs to be “normal” again. Adding toner to your nightly routiney can give you younger, smoother, and incredibly refreshed feeling skin!


What Toner Is Best For Your Skin?

Just as with many other skin care products, your skin type as well as personal preference play a large role in choosing a toner. All skin toners are not created equal, however, there is a toner for everyone out there! Whether your skin is dry, sensitive, or oily, we’re sure there is a toner that will fit your needs.

Dry Skin: Look for toners that contain hyaluronic acid and moisturizers.

Oily Skin: Look for toners that that are oil free and contain salicylic acid.

Combination Skin: Look for toner that contains a moisturizer.
