We are all familiar with the failsafe skincare ritual of cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing and the daily use of toner can feel like a daunting extra step. So do you really need it? The answer is yes – especially in the coming summer months. Toner is a water-based solution with humectants that work to keep moisture in the upper levels of the skin. In turn, it fights dryness and gives your skin an instant boost of hydration. That’s not all, though. Toner is known to combat chemicals such as chlorine. Summer swims are a necessity when it comes to getting through the Georgia summer and chlorine can sit on your skin long after a splash, drying it out. In contrast to combating dehydrating chemicals, toner enhances your preexisting skincare routine. It consists of ingredients that soothe, control oil (thus fighting acne) and stimulate blood circulation. Applying it pre-moisturizer can multiply these benefits as well as add a protective layer to your skin so you can say goodbye to environmental damage.
Toner is a skin saver when it comes to summer sun and it’s well worth the extra step. We love Dr. HauschkaFacial Toner and Clarifying Toner. Sircuit Cosmeceuticals also boasts two of its own: Molecular Mist and Immaculate Mist. Ready, set, summer skin!
