Toning: Day 2

Hey beauties,how r u all doing??This is the step2 that should be done after cleansing...
TONER:
Toner usually is a liquid that claims to cleanse the skin,shrink the pores,tighten the pores,balance the pH of the skin,soothe the skin,reduce the appearence of wrinkles,making the skin ready for hydration.Toners are used after cleansing to remove any residual makeup or dirt that the cleanser left on skin.


Types:
1.skin freshners:they are the mildest form and mostly are without alcohol.they are gentle and suit all types of skin mostly dry,sensitive,allergic,dehydrated.
2.skin tonics:they are slightly stronger with little alcohol.they suit dry,combination,oily skin types
3.astringents:these are the strongest forms with high proportions of alcohol.they are for oily skin as they are very drying.


Is toner necessary???
while there are people who swear by a toner,quite excited about the change that made to their skin,many experts feel that toner is not a must-have product in skin care.Many beauty experts feel that only people with extremely oily skin or acne-prone skin or the ones who want a squeky clean face after wearing heavy makeup all day need a toner.Most of the dermatologists consider toner unnecessary in skin care regime.The main aim of toner is to remove the left over residue but any good cleanser would remove all the dirt thus clearing way off for toner.
"often sold as a must-use step,toners are truely optional" Bobby brown in `Bobby brown beauty`.


'Many companies try to sell us toner by telling us that they close the pores but pores aren`t elevator doors that open and close.-total beauty by sarah stacey'
so the benefits of toner is always a debatable topic,so the toner usage is totally a personal choice friends.If you are addicted and want to continue,you can totally go ahead and if you just dont feel like you need one,make sure to invest in a good cleanser that will pretty much cover it up for you




How to use the toner?
using a soft cotton ball/pad ,first wipe the toner across your T-zone as this is oily area of the face n will benefit the most,then wipe the remaining on the cheeks,give some time to for it to be completely absorbed before moisturising.  (or)  if you feel that the costly toner is getting wasted on the cotton ball,you can just dab it onto the face with your finger tips  (or) can even spray it on the face

  3. I use dabur rose water + few drops of tea tree oil + few drops of clove oil works great as toner and anti bacterial :) .. I don't believe toners can do much for your pores so just an antibaterial layer is good for me.
