Don’t believe the myth that toners are only for extremely oily skin types. Toner’s balance the pH levels in the skin, reducing oil in oily skin types and adding moisture to dry skin. In fact, using a toner daily will activate your skin’s natural oils which will aid in the reduction of dry skin.  Find out which toner is the right one for your skin type.

For Aging or Dry Skin:

Try the Renewing Toner. This antioxidant rich toner is formulated with lactic acid and ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is an effective vitamin C that works to prevent the symptoms of aging. Lactic acid is used as an alternative to glycolic acid and increases cell turnover.

For Sensitive Skin:

Try the Soothing Cleanser. This calming toner alleviates redness and inflammation for a fresh, hydrated complexion. It’s key ingredients include Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide. Don’t be frightening by the long name – this Indian plant enhances the skin’s immune system, calms irritation, helps retain moisture and has antibacterial effects. Talk about a power plant! Willow herb is also found in the Soothing Toner, and is a natural alternative to hydrocortisone to reduce inflammation and irritation.

For Sun Damaged or Dull Skin:

Try the Brightening Toner. This toner lightens your skin for a vibrant, more even complexion. The key ingredients include Kojic acid and Ascorbic acid. Kojic acid is derived from mushrooms and is a natural lightener making this toner a non-irritating melanin suppressor. If you are considering using lightening products, serums, or treatments add this toner into your product regime to prep the skin.

For Acne Prone or Oily Skin:

Try the Clarifying Toner. This deep penetrating toner effectively cleans pores eliminating excess oil and preventing dead cell build up, for deeply purified skin. It’s key ingredients are glycolic acid and salicylic acid. The glycolic acid increases skin shedding to decongest clogged pores, while the salicylic acid provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. ID Toners th

All toners should be used as the last cleansing step at night and in the morning to lift impurities and refresh the skin. Try applying with a cotton pad and allow to dry before applying any other products. To adjust the intensity of the treatment alternate any of the above toners.  If your skin tends to need refreshing throughout the day, carry a travel size toner with you and spritz straight on your skin (even on top of make-up).
