Just like many other young women my age, I have an abundance of different products that I use on my face every single day. From moisturizers and products that exfoliate my skin, to specific treatment and prevention products, toners have changed my skin care routine the most and have truly changed my life. I always used to think that toners were just another useless product that would sit in my bathroom cabinet, going untouched and unnoticed for years. But trust me. Once you start using toners, you will wonder why you never had before.
First of all, you may be wondering what the point of toners are. Toners are part of the cleansing process and come along with many benefits. They can remove any remaining cleaner and dirt that was still on your skin, and they are balancing products because they help your skin maintain its normal pH. Toners are very important to add to your skin care routine because not only do they further clean your skin, but they balance your skin before you put anything else on your skin. Products that are put onto balanced skin will look and feel better. Not to mention, todays’ toners hydrate, exfoliate, and soothe your skin. My personal favorite is Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner.
Convinced yet? Next time you’re out buying your usual skin care products, pick up a toner, try it, and see if you can notice a difference in your skin and how your other products work! Share your thoughts with me and let me know what products you’ve tried.
