Skin toner must have middle child syndrome. It is neglected. and often left out of the skin care routine. Despite all we heard how important it is to cleanse, tone and moisturize our skin day – how many of us tone. I could tell you from my experience that I used to skip this step all the time because it was so time-consuming. However, recently I discovered that lack of toner could be the reason for my open pores, and that it has many benefits that my skin needed. Since I don’t play around with my skin care, I jumped on board immediately by adding toner to my cleansing routine.
Here are the top 3 reasons why you need skin toner in your life:
1. It shrinks open pores
Applying toner to a cotton ball not only removes excess oil from the skin but also reduces its pore size.
2. Lack of toner causes open pores.
A skincare Artistry agent explained that not including toner to your skin regime can cause open pores. Gasp!
After cleansing skin, your pores open up after the removal of dirt and grime from your face. Therefore, you need to close it with toner which acts as a protective layer thus reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin.
3. It moisturizes.
Some toners are humectants, which means that they help to bind moisture to the skin. I love to moisturize. Its the key to your skin suppleness and youthfulness. So yeah, if a toner can moisturize then I want it.
