This blog will mainly be focusing on the toning technique of your skincare routine!
Toner, some may believe it to be a marketing myth, and an unnecessary part of a skincare routine and others are absolutely in love with its skin-balancing effects. So, what does toner actually do? Toners contain a variety of soothing, brightening, and anti-aging ingredients that nourish and replenish the skin after cleansing and act as a primer for the rest of your skincare products.
What are the benefits of GUINOT Toner?
- Removes impurities: Toner removes oil and traces of dirt, bacteria, and makeup. It also removes the dust, pollution, and impurities that can still be lingering after washing with a cleanser.
- Protects skin: Toners work to close up any gaps in the skin cells, which reduces the risk of impurities finding their way into the skin (plus, this has the added benefit of making pores appear smaller).
How do you apply GUINOT Toner?
It’s best applied by adding it to a round cotton wool pad, gently blotting the skin. Many Toners will recommend applying with your hands directly to skin, try not to do that as the bacteria from your hands will be transferred.
The toning process varies depending on which cleanser you use. If you are using something like a milky cleanser, then it is ideal to tone after. This completes the skin cleansing routine, rebalances the PH and refreshes the skin.
