A good face toner closed your pores and restored the skin’s optimum pH level after cleansing – preparing it for the next step – anti ageing moisturiser.
In addition – toning lotion removed the last traces of makeup if your cleansing routine had missed anything and generally freshened up your skin.
According to Simply Anti Aging, that cool soaked cotton wool pad swished around the face seems to leave skin feeling cleaner and fresher than just cleansing alone did. With a spray toner, you can give yourself a quick spritz during the day to freshen skin or use it to set makeup after you’ve done applying it.
Other benefits of using face toner are that it adds a layer of moisture to the skin. Anyone over 40 will recognize that shiny “tight” feeling skin can develop after cleansing. Something a good skin toner will fix immediately. Any anti-ageing moisturiser will sink in better if the skin is slightly moist and a toner performs that function too.
The common thing about all the best skin toners – certainly the ones for ageing skin – is that they don’t dry out or damage fragile skin. They come without harmful drying agents like alcohol and they often have added anti-ageing ingredients in their own right.
It’s recommended that a hydrating skin toner is used as part of your anti ageing skin care regimen.
The reason is probably quite simple – these hydrating toners enhance the effects of the other skin care products in the line. They work better together than alone.
