Are Facial Toners Worth The Hype? Do I Really Need One?

Do I Need Facial Toner?

It seems like every few months a new “must-have” skincare product is making the rounds through all the top 5 lists and it looks like toners are having their moment yet again. So why care about using a toner when up until now you’ve been doing just fine with your cleanser, exfoliator, and moisturizer? Toners may have received a bad rep in the past since they tended to be laced with astringents, most commonly alcohol, but in this article we’ll take a look at the positive sides of the liquid gold that you can spritz throughout the day!

How can toners benefit my skin?

Natural toners like our Original Toner are very gentle on the skin, as they are packed with skin healthy botanicals and antioxidants.  Most helpful as well as necessary for those with oily and acne-prone skin, toners help to remove excess dirt and grime as well as left over cleanser and makeup particles from the skin. Not only do toners help to clean, they also help to balance the skin's natural pH levels which is important for preventing dryness, irritation, and acne.

It doesn’t stop there! Toners also help to refresh and hydrate the skin, refine and tighten pores, as well as improve the texture of the skin.

What ingredients should I look for in a toner?

Toners are mostly meant to control dirt and oil clogged in the pores, but that shouldn’t be the only reason to use one. When searching for a toner to use, some of the best ones include an all-in-one blend of ingredients that help to reduce pores, refresh the skin, reduce appearance of wrinkles as well as brighten the skin.

In our alcohol-free toner, we’ve included Rose Water, Witch Hazel, Apple Cider Vinegar, Lemongrass, Geranium, and Frankincense Essential Oils. Don’t take our word for how good this blend is, the combination of these ingredients has Whole Clarity user Jane saying “The spritz of a lifetime!” while Freida says the toner is a  “quick pick me up after a long day! It awakens me and it has even helped with evening my skin tone!!!”

How should I apply toner?

Toners can either be spritzed on the face after cleansing or sprayed onto a cotton pad and gently dabbed across the face and neck area. For a quick refresher throughout the day, you can spray directly to your face when needed.
