Toners?? Do we need it

Is Toner really needed?

I use to always think 'O it’s just another product added to make money' Am being truly honest and thats what I thought. But once I researched and started using it in my own skin care routine, I really like it and would not miss a toner out.

There are so many benefits when using a toner after washing your face also after you have removered your make up.

Fast acting and absorbing into skin
Deep cleans your skin
Leaves your skin feeling very refreshed
Removes last trace of make up and dirt if missed when cleansing 
Addes a layer of protection
Added layer of hydration with hydrated ingredients, eg Hyaluronic acid 
Helps reduce pore size, blemishes, treatments to skin when using active ingredients 
Restores the ph balance of your skin
Also reduces in grow hair.

When do you use a Toner?

Morning and evening after you have washed or cleansed your skin. Once washed, keep your skin damp and then you go in with a toner. Best way of using a toner is with a cotton pad with few drops of your preferred toner and glide all over your face. Some prefer dabbing the liquid on to skin using their hands/palm.
If you love wearing make up daily or wear on occasions, once you have removed and washed your make up then work your skin with a toner. Those are the best times to fit in a toner and let it do its job. Note: if toners have active ingredients like Retinol, use only when it states (Evening time 2-3 times a week) Alway follow bottle instructions as each brand, ingredients have their recommended use.

How many times can use Toner?

Alot of toners are reccomended to use twice a day. The days you wear make up and take it off before the evening, try not to use the same toner again in your night routine unless it’s mild, no actives ingredients you can. However it all depends on the ingredient to your toner really. If it’s mild and has no acids like Glycolic acid then yes use it as this will not effect your skin. If you are using strong acidic toner then don't use it. You can just use a simple toner for your night routine. So maximum twice a day. I say that but my dry skin can take toners to three times a day so play it by the ear and see how it goes. All depends on your skin type and how your skin reacts.

I would really reccomend people who have acne prone skin, large pores and have blemishes to not miss this step. There are so many types of toners out there now in the beauty market. You are bound to find the prefect one weather its one with all organic ingredients to sensible amount of acids for your skin. Also branded and drugstore toners available. I feel like toners are a great way to really absorb the ingredients on damp skin.

As I have started using toners, I have noticed that I can switch up products now and then and it does not irritate or effect my skin. I don't break out as my skin has got into a habit of the extra cleaning and product use.

For some mild toner recommendations.
