3 More Reasons To Love Your Facial Toner Now

Toners, well they exfoliate and purify in one simple step, but read on for 3 more reasons to love your facial toner now.

With a toner you do not get to wash your face, worry about soap suds, or the remedy fix. What you need to know is the difference between astringent and toner to start with so as not to stress your skin.

Celebrity esthetician, Renee Rouleau explains the difference as shown below:

A toner is a water-based solution (generally alcohol-free) that uses humectants to keep the moisture in the upper layers of the skin to prevent skin dehydration. It is considered to be an important part of a home skin care regimen.

An astringent is a water-based solution that, when applied to the skin, is meant to shrink or constrict the skin. It is a stronger form of a toner and is formulated with SD Alcohol or Denatured Alcohol that gives the skin a tight feeling. (The tight feeling is a sign of dehydration and not a sign of clean skin, as many think.)
