Toners are specially-formulated solutions (also known as a facial tonic) that help eliminate any dirt, makeup, excess oil, or other debris that may be left behind after cleansing. By ensuring the skin is free of impurities, skin toners help prepare the skin for skincare products that follow. SkinCeuticals offers several facial toners to address the needs of specific skin types, as well as different skin concerns
WHAT ARE TONERS FOR?
In addition to removing any lingering oil, dirt, and debris, facial toners are designed to improve the appearance of different skin types and address specific concerns such as oily or acne-prone skin, rough texture, and more.
Facial toners can be a gentle yet effective way to help exfoliate the skin. This extra exfoliation can benefit the skin in a number of ways. First, skin toners can help minimize the uppermost layer of dead skin cells, in turn promoting the absorption of skincare products that follow. Eliminating dead, dull cells with toners helps enhance the skin’s radiance and smooth surface texture while promoting a healthy-looking complexion. Facial toners can also provide soothing benefits for men after shaving.
WHEN SHOULD YOU USE FACIAL TONERS?
The best time to use toners is immediately after cleansing. Using facial toners after cleansing helps prepare the skin and optimize the absorption of serums, moisturizers, and other targeted treatment products that follow.
CAN I USE FACIAL TONERS EVERY DAY?
Facial toners can be used every day. In fact, most skin toners are formulated for twice-daily use after cleansing in the morning and evening. You can also use toners in place of a full cleanse when you’re on the go or after working out.
HOW DO YOU APPLY TONERS?
Facial toners are a quick, easy skincare step. For optimal results, use toners twice daily after cleansing. Pour a small amount of facial tonic onto a cotton ball and smooth over the face, neck, and chest. If using skin toners in the morning, follow with a SkinCeuticals vitamin C serum and broad-spectrum sunscreen. When using facial toners in the evening, follow with a SkinCeuticals corrective serum or moisturizer.
WHAT ARE THE BEST FACIAL TONERS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?
Those with sensitive skin can benefit from toners that are formulated to help restore the skin’s pH after cleansing, and a facial tonic that contains soothing botanicals can help keep easily-irritated skin comfortable. Gentle enough for sensitive and sensitized skin, our Equalizing Toner features a blend of mild fruit-based acids, rosemary, aloe, and chamomile to exfoliate and balance the skin.
SHOULD YOU USE FACE TONERS IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN?
Facial toners should be selected based on your skin type, and dry skin can benefit from toners as well. The gentle exfoliation that some skin toners provide helps smooth skin texture, soften the skin, and prepare the skin for hydrating products that follow.
SkinCeuticals offers several toners for different skin types, including dry skin. Equalizing Toner removes lingering residue, and this pH-balancing facial tonic also features a blend of hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate plus botanical extracts that help soften, soothe, and tone the skin.
