What does toner actually do? The answer might surprise you

What’s standing between you and clear skin? It could be the absence of just one product in you beauty routine. Here’s a secret: one of the most effective key to healthy skin is a face toner. Its most common benefits include helping unclog pores by removing oil and traces of dirt and grime in your face, but there are actually so much more.

What is a toner and what does it do?

To put it simply, toner looks like water and acts like water. But IT IS NOT water. It is packed with so much more than hydrogen and oxygen. Depending on the toner, it can also contain acids, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories.

If we are to talk science, a toner is a fast-penetrating liquid that delivers skin a quick hit of hydration and helps remove dead cells off the surface of the skin. The result: plump, glowy skin. On a makeup-related note, a toner is like a primer for the rest of your skin care routine.

Below are some additional benefits of toner:

1. It shrinks pores

Applying a small amount of toner to a soft cotton ball or pad and gently blotting and wiping your face with it will remove oil and give the appearance of smaller pores. Using a toner also makes it harder for debris to penetrate pores.

2. It restores your skin’s pH balance

Our skin is naturally acidic, typically with a pH balance of between five and six (on a scale from 0 to 14). But that balance can get out of whack after cleansing due to the alkaline nature of soap. When this happens, your skin needs to work overtime to return to its normal levels and that may result in oil, but using a toner can help restore this balance quickly.

3. It adds a layer of protection

Toners can help close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing, reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It can even protect and remove chlorine and minerals present in tap water.

4. It solves variety of skin concerns

There are a lot of types of toners in the market today. Some have antibacterial and exfoliating properties, while some help bind moisture and brighten skin. Keep in mind to always choose a toner depending on your skin type and need. If you have acne-prone skin, it is important that you look for a toner that is formulated with acne-fighting ingredients that won’t leave your skin dry and irritated.

5. It refreshes skin

Toner can also be used in lieu of washing your skin when it’s oily or dirty. It will leave your skin revitalized even when you’re on the go.
