Toners can be incorporated into a daily skin care routine in order to balance the pH of the skin. By balancing the pH of the skin, you facilitate the penetration of active ingredients found within products such as serums and moisturisers which are applied to the skin after toning, therefore achieving more effective results.
Using toners as a preparation tool for subsequent applications
Toning your skin is not something that all consumers deem as necessary in their daily skin care routine however, it is a vital process in preparing your skin for active products such as serums which are applied after the toning of the skin. By toning the skin you not only balance the pH of the skin but you also facilitate the penetration of active ingredients, this is done by performing a friction technique during the toning process. This friction movement allows for an increase in micro-circulation to the superficial layers of the skin and therefore encourages a more effective absorption of active ingredients. Staying away from toners which contain alcohol or artificial fragrances is recommended as this can be too harsh on the skin and may cause a sensitivity response.
