Our skin gets affected a lot each time we step out of house. Starting from the dust, pollution and heat from the sun, each things makes your skin dull each passing day. We go for several skin treatments in parlor to make skin clean and pimple free. But, does that really help?
I have a sensitive skin and even a small amount of dust in my bed leads to a big red ugly pimple on my forehead, cheeks, chin and worse on tip of nose. Few days, back I met my friend and while talking I was amazed to see that she got a very clear radiant skin. So, to get the best tips, I started asking about her routine and products she use. All the things we used were same except she applied toner every day. Unlike many, I never understand the real benefits of using a toner. Still, I decided to go for one. It’s been almost 3 weeks since I started using toner and my skin feels fresh day or night. It’s good to see your face normal rather than looking similar to mars surface.

How Toner is Helpful?
Like many of you, I always felt toner unnecessary. As I told that my skin is very sensitive, I am prone to acne when makeup or dust stick to my face for longer time. One of my friend recently recommended an herbal toner and after just 3 days I can see major difference in my face. Basically, toner cleans your pores from deep without removing the moisture from skin. If you are using harsh soap to wash your face, it will even remove the trace of chemicals from your skin. It tightens the open pores and makes your skin look younger. If applied on the T zone of your face, toner balance the oil secretion of this area.

For those who have sensitive skin, use rose water or toner which has need or basil. People with oily skin should opt of toner with the properties of tea tree. It controls the secretion of oil and make your face look fresh for longer time. For those who have dry skin problem, use any mild toner preferably herbal. Always use toner after washing your face with a good face wash. Apply toner with the help of sterilized cotton in an upward direction. This was it will not only clean your skin from deep but also tighten your skin. Moisturizing your skin is very important after using toner.
