Including a Toner in Your Beauty Regimen: Is It Worth It?

For most beauty and skincare enthusiasts, toners are a must-have. Toners can also prevent breakouts and keep your extra oils at bay. It has so many benefits that it’s almost a sin not to include it in your daily regimen.

Let me share my facial cleanser and toner with you, as I have been using this combo for a few months now, and I will never look for something else. I use Kedma Wash & Tone Milk Cleanser and Skin Toner as part of my skincare routine.

I have oily skin, and I find that the aloe and niacinamide in the toner make my skin less oily. I’ve also noticed that my skin is less prone to breakouts.

I first use the facial milk cleanser to wash my face and remove makeup. I then go ahead and take a cotton pad and wet it with the skin toner. I gently massage it onto my face in circular motions, and I make sure to get every inch of my face for that even texture.

After the toner, I let my skin air dry, and then I apply everything else — my essence, moisturizer, eye cream and lip balm. This combo makes my skin glowing and supple. I’ve noticed that my extra facial oil has been dramatically reduced and I only need to blot once a day when wearing my makeup.

So yes, the toner is definitely a staple in my beauty regimen.

One for Every Skin Type

Almost every beauty company has come up with a toner of their own. There are hundreds of different types out there, and you should make sure to match the toner to your skin type to make sure that you will reap its benefits.

If you have oily skin, go for a toner that can exfoliate your skin. This takes away the excess dirt and dead cells on your face, leaving you with squeaky clean skin. For acne-prone skin, look for a clarifying solution. Salicylic acid is your best friend, so always look for that ingredient when looking for a toner.

If you have dry skin, look for a toner with hyaluronic acid. This ingredient moisturizes skin without stripping the essential oils on your face.

Always do your research and ask your dermatologist what products you should use and what ingredients to look for in each product.
