Skin Toner 101: What is It and Why Use It?

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 2.37.04 PMFor many, the daily skin care regime goes a little something like this: wash; dry; moisturize, repeat.  Most don’t know what toner is or why they should use it. And with so many skin care products on the market, it’s easy to get confused. Some toners claim to moisturize, while others claim to tighten and dry the skin. So here are some skin toner benefits and reasons why you should use it.

Toners generally consist of moisturizers, oils and extracts that help soothe your skin as opposed to astringents, which are alcohol-based thus tightening the skin and pores while removing oil. Similarly, fresheners work to tighten the skin, but are made with natural ingredients like caffeine and green tea instead of alcohol. Because all of these different products can fall under the toner umbrella, it’s easy to get confused.

Toners are meant to be used after cleansing to restore and repair skin’s surface. Toner should be an essential part of your cleansing routine, as it provides vital nutrients that your skin needs. Besides nourishing the skin, the benefits of toner can be felt and seen almost instantly, brightening skin and shrinking the appearance of pores.

Dr. Lamond’s Hydrating White Tea Toner is a hydrating toner that restores PH balance, enhances suppleness, and restores moisture to clean skin. This paraben-free formula gently removes impurities while it soothes and smoothes skin texture. Herbal extracts of white and green tea, cranberry, and milk thistle provide nourishment to areas affected by dryness.

Clients report that this light and fragrant toner instantly makes skin look and feel younger. In fact, some have been known to use a spritz or two on hair to control frizz and add shine.  Stop by our offices to pick up a bottle today!
