5 Benefits Of Using Herbal Toners
Herbal toners are an essential part of the daily grooming process.
Toning comes in right after cleansing and just before moisturising. This step really shouldn’t be overlooked, and should be performed as often as you cleanse and moisturise your face. Although not apparently obvious, herbal toners provide valuable benefits to your skin, five of which are listed below:
1. Herbal toners complement the facial cleansing process.
They help clear the skin’s pores - removing residual oil, dirt and dead cells that would otherwise build up and lead to unslightly pimples.
2. Herbal toners, especially those that are aloe-based, are gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.
They help soothe and disinfect irritations.
3. Most herbal toners have astringent properties.
This helps minimise and tighten pores, making the skin look smoother and healthier.
4. Herbal toners add moisture to the skin.
They hydrate the skin and help restore firmness and elasticity.
5. Herbal toners restore the skin’s pH balance.
This is particularly important if you use soap cleansers. Soap cleansers are alkaline by nature whereas your skin's normal pH is acidic. By restoring the skin’s normal pH, herbal toners allow it to function optimally.
And...if that's not enough, as an added bonus, herbal toners help soothe over-exposed skin.
So take them along with you on holiday and spray them over your face, throughout the day. This will help freshen and hydrate your skin.
