What is the role of facial toner?
Why would we spend money on an aqueous solution with some additional ingredients?
Every time we cleanse our face with lotion, soap or face wash we wash away (together with make-up) our protective layer: water-lipid cover. Without this protective coat our skin loses moisture and becomes open to irritation, bacteria and fungi. Renewal of the water-lipid cover takes about an hour. Toner helps us to protect our skin immediately and prepares for absorption of moisturiser. The acidy pH of toner will:
- create a barrier for bacteria
- moisturise our skin (you will need less face cream)
- improve blood circulation by massaging toner into skin with cotton cloth or fingers
- cleanse make-up residue.
What facial toner is the best?
Look rather for an alcohol free toner. Alcohol can cause dryness and irritation. I would discourage you from buying 2in1 cleanser/toner products. I am not sure how these products cleanse your face and provide acidy pH at the same time. All detergents and chemicals have an alkaline pH which destroys the water-lipid layer of our skin.
