The term Cleansing-Toning-Moisturising is the one term we have all been listening to ask children. It seems like the go-to beauty regime for most celebrities with brilliant skin. The process involves cleansing the skin to get rid of all the impurities, toning it and then using a moisturiser to ensure it remains smooth and supple. 

Cleansing and moisturising seem easy enough to gauge, but toning seems like the ultimate mystery for those entering the beauty world. 

So what exactly is a toner? 

In simple terms, a toner is something which looks and acts like water but is a lot more than it. Toners are usually filled with a lot more hydrogen and oxygen and also contains acids, antioxidants, glycerin, etc. 

It is basically a liquid which gives the skin a quick hit of hydration while getting rid of the dead skin cells that are stuck on the surface. Using it regularly enables the skin to breathe easily, get rid of oiliness and leave it fresh and glowing. 

It is also excellent for the pores as it clears them up, gets rid of impurities stuck in them and brings your skin back to its natural state. 

Why use a toner after cleansing?

If you are thinking cleansing does the trick and that your skin is all clean, you are wrong. 

Instead, skin experts suggest that one should use a toner immediately after exfoliating the skin as the molecules penetrate the skin better when it is wet  and hence delivers better results. 

Which toner to use?

Like most makeup products today, there are a variation of toners available in the market with them available for different and specific skin types. 

If you have large and open pores, skin experts suggest that using toners with glycolic acid are best. This helps remove the dead cells which accumulate around the pores making them look larger and more prominent. 

If you have oily skin, you should be using a salicylic toner acid-based toner according to skin experts. This is sure to get rid of excess oil without drying out the skin .

If you have dull skin you ought to use toners containing exfoliants like pappaya extracts and lactic acid which will brighten it up. Alcohol based toners should be a no-no for it could ruin your skin further. 

If you have dry skin, toners containing fermented yeast and amino acids should be used as they will not only hydrate but also nourish the skin. 

If you have wrinkled skin and mature skin, toners consisting of antioxidants and ingredients like glycerin, rose water, orange, etc. could be used to calm the skin and slow the ageing process down. 

The best way to apply toner, according to beauticians and skin experts, is to either dab it directly on your face and massage it into the skin or pour some on  a cotton pad and wipe it well on your skin. This also protects your skin from drying out or attracting bacteria on it. 

All-in-all, regular use of toner could do wonders for your skin, reduce breakouts and leaves your skin hydrated at all times!
