Benefits of Toning:
pH Balance: pH balance refers to the acidity level of your skin. The scale is 0-14 with 7 being neutral. Skin needs to be slightly acidic to protect you.
Detoxification: Many toxins that affect the health and appearance of your skin come from industrial-made chemicals. Facial toners work to remove environmental toxins such as smoke, smog and other chemical residues from your skin. This helps your skin to look brighter and healthier, and long-term benefits may include less acne, less severe acne scarring and fewer wrinkles.
Pore Tightening: Larger pores can permit dirt, oil and toxins to enter the skin. Facial toners tighten pores to prevent this and keeping the skin balanced.
Hydration and Nourishment: Toners provide hydration to your skin improving the elasticity, smoothness, moisture for a more radiant appearance. Infused with essential vitamins and minerals to nourish the skin.
Acne Reducing: Acne produce excess oil leading to blemishes and causing the skin to appear dull and unbalanced. Toners remove excess oil, build up and dead skin cells improving the look and reducing breakouts.
