In cosmetics the word ‘toner’ signifies a lotion, cream or wash that is intended to shrink the appearance of pores and cleanse the skin. Toners are available as a face wash or as a full body wash. The skin has a natural PH balance which is affected by the use of products on the skin – cosmetics, moisturiser, body wash etc. – toners help to restore the balance of the skin’s PH.
As they are great for acne sufferers – as well as those who just like to look after their skin – there are specific ways that a toner should be applied, to avoid aggravating the acne further. The most common way of applying a toner is to squeeze it onto damp cotton wool, this helps to sooth as well as clean the pores. A second option would be to purchase a spray on toner and spray it over the face; this way your face is cooled but you don’t have to touch your, possibly painful, spots. If you have clear skin and you use toner to make sure it stays that way, either of these methods will work for you.
