Challenge #1: How to find the skin cleanser of your dreams
Challenge #2: How to choose the best exfoliant for your skin
You’ve picked the skin cleanser of your dreams, you know the best exfoliant for your skin type, now it’s time to tone! A toner is a liquid applied to the skin that completes the cleansing of your skin.
If you’ve never used a toner, I want to let you in on a little secret: after you cleanse your face, it is probably still dirty. Advances have been made in skincare over the past few years, and cleansers are better than ever, but one fact remains- everyone does not clean their face properly, or thoroughly.
Aside from re-cleansing, toners can do other things like soften the skin, making it optimal for absorbing serums, essences, and moisturizers. Most toners balance pH. Others are medicated to treat acne, fade dark spots and rehydrate. Regardless, toning should be an essential part of your skincare regimen.
Best toner for oily/combination skin
Most oily girls make the fatal mistake of picking up toners full of alcohol if you pick up a toner at all. Unfortunately, when you apply toners with alcohol, you are zapping the oil on contact, but your skin says you are dry and you end up producing more oil.
You want a toner that will balance the skin.
Best toner for dry skin
If you have dry skin and you are not using a toner, I seriously don’t know what is wrong with you. Our skin needs moisture any way we can get it, and toner is just another way to get it.
You want a toner that is rich in hydrating ingredients.
Best toner for sensitive skin
Everything aggravates your skin, so it’s a must you avoid alcohol, fragrance, and ingredients that exfoliate. Treat yourself to flowers, literally.
You want a toner that will nourish the skin.
Best toner for normal skin
Your skin type is rare, but it’s perfect. You don’t have to put as much effort into your skin as the rest of us, but you still have a bomb skincare routine that includes toning.
