Tips - Toners Based on Your Skin Type and Concerns
When it comes to your skin, it’s important to invest the time and a few extra bucks in keeping it healthy (you pay $7 for that venti latte with muffin, you can purchase a good toner).
Adding an alcohol free and fragrance free toner does more than just refresh the skin, it's necessary for overall skin health. After cleansing, applying toner can help balance ph levels, cool and calm irritation, and it also contains antiseptic properties.
Using premium quality NAKED COTTON pads rather than your hands, you’re keeping your skin clean preventing dirt and germs from entering your pores putting you at a greater risk of breakouts. If that isn’t reason enough, using NAKED COTTON's Textured pads to apply toner is a great way to remove dead skin, makeup and grime, that may be left over after cleansing. With its gentle exfoliate texture, that works both solo or with use of an exfoliating product, these chemical free cotton sheets are lint free allowing skin to stay smooth and hydrated without leaving pieces of cotton residue.
Acne Prone/Oily Skin
Those dealing with the frustration of acne prone/oily skin will find some products especially with drying agents such as alcohol, will cause the production of oil to go into overdrive as it not only dries out your skin, it tries replacing the moisture by working even harder in creating more oil than there was originally. Look for toners that contain ingredients such as lactic acids, beta hydroxy acids and even apple cider vinegar, and with these types of ingredients, your skin will still feel tight after cleansing but will still stay moisturized.
Those that have combination skin may deal with blemishes on occasion and some oily areas typically in their T-zone, while dry skin is found in other areas. It’s a bit more complicated to choose products that are perfect for you as some seem too drying while others seem too ‘oily’. Choosing a toner with alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids will clean the skin from excess oils, makeup and dirt, but continue to moisturize, smooth and brighten.
Dry skin can be very frustrating to deal with, especially those makeup lovers out there that are simply trying to achieve a perfect makeup application. Dead skin and flakiness stay on the surface not only preventing you from a smoother application, but clogging pores which lead to breakouts. Look for hydrating ingredients such as vitamin E, chamomile and the ever so popular hyaluronic acid to name a few that moisturize and soothe dry, irritated skin. With the use of NAKED COTTON Textured pads, skin is gently exfoliated after each use. Adding an exfoliate to the skin a few days a week followed by your toner, allows for products to absorb properly and leave you with the best results.
It’s highly suggested to keep a travel size toner in your bag to cleanse and refresh the skin when needed with your NAKED COTTON Classic pads that are ideal for use with a toner. If you haven’t done so already, create a daily skin care regimen and make sure you incorporate a toner that works especially for you and your needs, and achieve much healthier looking skin!
