Face Toner

How to apply a toner, which one should I use and are face toners even necessary in the first place? Here you will find the answers to your questions and all of the reasons why toners are a vital step of any daily skincare routine.

Cleanser and Toner - Partners in Crime

Toner is one of the most underrated skincare products out there. Once it has found its way into the bathroom cabinet, it is usually degraded to a quick make-up remover. But a toner can do so much more! Let’s start at the beginning: Facial toners work best if used in combination with the right cleanser. No matter if you have normal skin, oily skin or dry skin, daily cleansing is the number one key to beautiful skin. Why? Cleansing removes pore-clogging dirt, dead skin cells and other debris, so the skin has an easier time absorbing the products you put on after. We recommend using a cleanser in the morning and evening, then rinsing it off with plenty of water.

This is where the toner comes into play It takes on several tasks at once: It gently removes make-up and dirt residues and leaves a refreshing feel. It also restores the skin‘s natural pH after cleansing, as contact with water disrupts the skin’s pH balance and protective skin barrier. Depending on the ingredients, a toner can cleanse, moisturize, smooth or soften the skin. Now, the skincare industry has finally caught up and offers facial toners for almost all skin types.

Why use toner for face

What does toner do for your face?

Yes, although toners might look just like water, they are and can do much more than that!
  • Hydrate the skin
  • Restore the skin's natural pH
  • Remove make-up
  • Clear pores and soothe the skin
Special anti-aging toners are a great choice for mature skin.

The Best Toner for Your Skin

There’s a huge selection of toners out there and it can be difficult to narrow down your options and find the one that’s best for your skin. You should always make sure that your products are formulated for your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, choose an alcohol-free toner. Clarifying toners are good for blemish-prone and acne-prone skin, while hydrating toners are ideal for dry skin.

How to Use Toner

Skin toners are an easy addition to your daily skincare routine. Apply in the morning and evening after cleansing. It is best to use a cotton pad for this. Pour the toner onto the cotton pad and wipe from the center of your face outward. Also, don’t forget your neck and décolleté! Our toners can be combined with the entire DALTON product range.
