If you feel that your skin looks dull, dehydrated and rough then a skin toner can enhance the skin significantly.

 

What is a toner?

Toner is a solution that helps remove any dirt or impurities that your cleanser could not get to. It helps in shrinking your pores, restoring the pH balance of your skin, and keeping your skin youthful and supple.

 

Why should you use a toner?

Toner makes it easy for other creams or moisturisers to be absorbed into your skin. It helps the skin look fresh and become hydrated.

 

How frequently should it be applied?

Toners are applied twice a day after cleansing. There are two ways to apply toners, one is to take some toner on a cotton pad and swipe your face with it. This is a more popular method.

The second way is to simply spray the toner on your face and let it air dry.
