Why are skin toners important?
If you are asking yourself “Why should I use skin toner?” well I have the answer, because I asked myself the same question a while ago. Skin toners are created with ingredients that restore the normal pH balance of your skin that is disturbed when you use cleansers in the morning and evening. A skin toner allows the skin soak up serums or moisturizers applied soon after, and so you get the most benefit from their ingredients.
Skin toners fit into an existing skincare routine
You do not have to change your skincare routine to use toners as they can be used after washing away a cleanser. Additionally, toners should optimally be applied within a minute of washing away a cleanser. I use the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Rose Cleanser and follow it with a toner. So, after the natural cleanser removes the dirt, pollutants and makeup from my skin and unclogs pores, the toner helps bring my skin back to normal.
The role of toners in combating acne
Acne is not just restricted to those with oily skin, as people with dry and sensitive skin types also get breakouts once pores are clogged. One of the major skin toner benefits is that it reduces the size of pores, and so there is less chance of debris and excess oil getting clogged in them. So, by using a toner that is right for your skin type you can efficiently reduce oil buildup in pores which causes acne.
How to choose a toner for your skin type and get rid of acne
Choosing the right skin toners for oily skin or dry/sensitive skin is essential if you want to get the most benefits from them, and reduce acne breakouts. Here are the tips you can use to find the right toner for your skin type.
Oily or combination skin - If you have oily skin then using the Savarnas Mantra® Natural Herbal Toner is a good option. It is also ideal for those who have combination skin on their face, which results in excess oil being seen along the “T-area” which extends from the forehead, over the nose and until the chin. It is created with natural extracts such as Witch Hazel, Yarrow, and Comfrey. One of the main ingredients in this natural skin toner is Witch Hazel which is an astringent and it works to tighten the pores of the skin.
Using the toner, oil buildup in the pores is cut down drastically but essential oils are not stripped from your skin. So, even as you use the toner you will notice that your skin does not dry out. The toner also keeps the pH balance of your skin optimal and so your skin gets the most benefit from, masks, serums, oils and moisturizers. So, with this toner included in your natural skin care routine you get the most benefits from the products that you use and nothing goes to waste.
Aging or dry skin - If you notice that as you age your skin is becoming dry then you need to change your toner. Using the Savarnas Mantra® Natural CoQ10 Age Defying Toner will give your skin the help is needs to combat signs of aging. Also it is one of the best natural toners for acne prone skin that is aging, as it helps control breakouts without worsening wrinkles and fine lines. The toner has the CoQ10 compound which is present in a nanoemulsion that penetrates deep into the skin. As the toner replenishes natural CoQ10 that is depleted as you age, it smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles and improves your skin tone.
If you naturally have dry skin it can cause signs of aging to appear prematurely. This toner includes several active botanical and natural ingredients such as Aloe Leaf which provides moisturization and prevents skin from drying out. Chamomile, Cucumber, Orange, Papaya and Sage extracts are also included. The papaya extract helps brighten the skin and reduces spots that spoil your skin tone. The toner also acts as a mild exfoliant and the combination of botanical extracts deliver anti-oxidants to the skin and combat the action of free radicals.
Sensitive or normal skin - The most recommended skin toner for normal skin is created from algae extract, and it is also suitable for those with sensitive skin. The Savarnas Mantra® Natural Hydrating Seaweed Toner is a perfect choice in this case and it is one of the best natural toners for skin. It is created with Brown Algae Extract and it helps soothe sensitive skin. The toner which has a combination of amino acids, plant-based nutrients, vitamins, and minerals helps reduce redness and irritation that are often seen on sensitive skin and ensures that the natural process of skin repair is enhanced.
The seaweed extract also helps ensure the oil balance of normal skin is kept intact and acne and blemishes are reduced. Ethylhexylglycerin in the formula acts a gentle humectant and absorbs moisture from the atmosphere to keep the skin hydrated.
Natural skin toners are no longer ignored and are playing an increasingly vital role in a skincare routine.
