Most women and some men skip using toners after cleaning their faces. What they do not realize is that skin toner is a great blood stimulant for the skin. In fact, a healthy glowing skin can be attained by using this product, apart from eating the right nutritious food.
Choosing the best toner for your skin
There are many toners available in the market that comes in many variants to cater for every human taste. Beforehand, you must assess your skin type – normal, dry, oily or sensitive type.
Generally, when a toner is applied, it will sting the skin a little due to its chemical compound. Some sensitive skin may experience mild skin irritation, but nothing like serious skin problems.
When making a choice, check out the labels and see the side effects it might have on the skin. If you find it happening to you, stop using and replace it. If you want to feel safe, you can try organic skin toners, which are possible to develop from ingredients you can find in your home.
