TONING TIPS – It does more than you think
~ A toner is a product which was originally created to remove excess cleanser and makeup. PHYT’S Toners Hydrolé Orange and Hydrolé Eucalyptus will remove excess cleanser and makeup, refresh the skin and treat. They also contain sea salt and potassium to balance the pH so that active ingredients can penetrate the skin appropriately and effectively. Hydration is aided also.
~ Toning is performed after cleansing the skin, morning and evening. In the morning it can be used alone to refresh and re-balance after the skins secretions at night. If wearing no makeup, or for men, the toners can be used alone to cleanse.
~ A toner should definitely not sting the skin! The skin should feel refreshed and revived.
~ Avoid toners containing phenoxyethanol (or in any skincare product with this in general). As mentioned in Cleansing Tips, it has the power to dehydrate the skin with one use.
~ Toners can have certain properties for the skin and to treat conditions such as soothing properties (bitter orange / petitgrain as in Hydrolé Orange), anti-bacterial (eucalyptus as in Hydrolé Eucalyptus), brightening (verbena), etc.
