1- Boost your cleansing power. Twice-daily use of a facial toner hydrates the skin and helps provide a much more thorough cleansing experience than a facial cleanser alone.
2- Smaller looking pores. When used as part of the cleansing process, a good toner helps remove ingrained debris from pores while having an astringent (tightening) action on the skin tissue, effectively decreasing the appearance of pores.
3- Add a layer of protection. Toners can help tighten cell gaps after cleansing, this reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It can even protect from and remove chlorine and minerals found in tap water.
4- More efficient moisturizing. Applying leave-on products to toner dampened skin makes for smoother application, thus reducing the amount of product needed.
5- Helps set make-up. Especially great for mineral make-up application
6- Refreshes & soothes skin. Humectant, water-based toners provide refreshing hydration but toners boosted with anti-inflammatory botanicals can also soothe reactive skin conditions
7- Delivery system for active ingredients. Toners can be formulated with powerful biological actives such as glycosaminoglycans, essential oils, or botanical extracts that can have a dramatic effect on skin’s health and appearance.
