Toner is, in my opinion, the least understood beauty product. Those with dry skin think it will further dry out their skin, and those with oily skin only like it because they think it’s drying out their skin (which, PS…isn’t good). Well, I’ve compiled some reasons as to why toner is necessary, and why you should use it daily!
It allows your other products (serum, eye cream, moisturizer) to penetrate the skin better because it completely removes any leftover makeup or residue from your face after your cleanser.
Helps in skin tone and texture by helping to shrink pores (hence, toning) and remove excess oil…key word excess, not all important oils.
There are many different types of toners, examples hydrating or balancing, made especially for dry or oily skin types.
I began using Artistry’s Balancing Toner a while ago when my dearrrr friendddddd Robert Dawson began selling their products. While the balancing toner is just one of the four types they offer, this is formulated for normal to oily skin types…which we all know fits me perfectly!
I use this in the AM and PM — during the day it helps to control oil and allow makeup to look matte and flawless. Even though I cleanse throughly, I find this toner is always getting off some extra makeup on the cotton pad…thank god. Also, everybody’s top concern…it has never dried out my skin…not once, and that’s how I know it’s a good product. Since a toner is basically an astringent, it’s easy to have just a little too much of a certain ingredient which causes drying, but not here…this one is balanced perfectly.
