What is toner?
In cosmetics, toner is generally used for skincare. It is referred to as lotion or washes made for skin cleansing and reduce the appearance of pores, mostly used on the face.
Why it is important?
For the complete cleansing of your skin, you should end it with a toner. A toner helps to reduce the pores of the skin and compact cell gaps after cleansing which stops the perforation of impurities and surrounding contaminants into the skin. It is used to remove chlorine and mineral present in the tap water. Some toners also help to bind moisture to the skin.
How and when to use toners?
- Begin with washing your face with warm water.
- Take a cotton pad and put some toner on it.
- Apply the toner with the help of a cotton pad over the face and neck area.
- After it gets dry, complete it with any moisturizer.
It is highly recommended to use a toner in the morning after cleansing and before moisturizing and we should apply toner at least once a day.
