How does a Toner work and why should it be a part of your Skincare Regimen?
Hi Lovelies! I am back on the Blog after so long. The previous year has been a roller coaster ride and a lot happened in terms of my career :) The good news is that I am back to Full Time Blogging and once again I am starting off with reviewing products that I use on a daily basis.
Most of the times, girls ask me about their skin related problems and ask about the products that would be good for their skin. Keeping their questions in mind, today I am going to discuss about the importance of a skincare product that should be a part of your beauty regimen and which is none other than a Toner.
One of the questions that girls ask is that:
"What is the use of a toner and why is it necessary?
When it comes to skincare you might invest in tons of moisturizers and cleansers but if you are not doing it in the right way, then all the efforts might go in vain. The step which is vital in between cleansing and moisturizing is toning which re balances your skin and hydrates it by adding a glow to it.
The purpose of a toner in any regular skincare routine is to cleanse skin and refine pores, giving your complexion a more even tone as they have hydrating and soothing ingredients.
Skincare Pick of the Month:
From this month onward, I am going to pick one of my favorite skincare product and share my review with all of you on a monthly basis. This month I gave Elemis Balancing Lavender toner a try and could not wait to share my review on it.
I have been using this product since last month and I decided that this toner should be reviewed so that I can share the benefits of this high quality product.
The Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner comes in a 200 ml bottle and the price is Rs. 4429/- This gentle purifying treatment toner effectively tones the skin and helps re balance the pH level, without the use of alcohol or harsh ingredients, leaving a fresh and clear complexion. By using soaps and even the best face washes, sometimes the pH level of our skin gets disturbed and sometimes our skin produces excess oils or becomes completely dry. This will keep your skin on its track. This one however is best for people with Normal/Combination Skin.
I used this toner regularly after using a Cleanser and before the moisturizer. It has a refreshing smell and it gives a fresh and soothing effect to my skin after I use it with a cotton pad.
Elemis offers a wide variety of products and they have different kinds of toners for different skin types which are mentioned below:
- Balancing Lavender Toner (Normal/Combination Skin)
- Re-hydrating Ginseng Toner (Normal/Dry Skin)
- Soothing Apricot Toner (Normal/Sensitive Skin)
The key is to find the right product according to your skin type and needs. Oily and spot-prone skin will benefit from the balancing lavender toner, while dry or combination skin types will need hydrating, moisturizing properties which you will find in the Re-hydrating Ginseng Toner. And if you have sensitive skin, the Apricot toner will help soothe your skin.
Always choose an alcohol free toner like Elemis as alcohol dries up your skin and it will make your skin patchy.
