What is Face Toner?

Facial toner is an in-between skincare step. It is supposed to be used after washing your face but before using your serum or moisturiser. Skin toner prepares the skin for the next steps. It gets rid of excess oil, makeup leftover and stubborn dirt on your face after you wash it. 

It is important to know that you can’t replace your face wash with skin toner. Usually face toners come in a water-based liquid form that may be infused with skin ingredients designed for specific skin concerns. 

In the past face toners were used as a way to balance the pH of the skin after using an alkaline soap product for cleansing. Now, as our facial cleansers tend to be more pH balanced and gentle, toners have evolved to be more advanced products that deliver extra ingredients to our skin. Today’s formulas are richer than ever. You can definitely find a toner tailored to your specific skin needs, this do-it-all is a top choice to simultaneously address all issues. 

Face toner is a perfect way to ensure your skin is totally clean and give it an extra dose of active ingredients. Whether your skin is sensitive and looking for soothing, acne-prone and needing excess oil removal or dry and thirsting for moisture, the right toner can help you out.

Who should use face toner?

Face toners should be used by everyone. When it comes to glowing, healthy-looking skin, toner is a key step in your routine. Toner removes any last traces of dirt, grime and impurities stuck in your pores after you wash your face. When added to your daily skincare routine and used regularly, it can have a major positive impact on the health of your skin.

Is face toner good for sensitive skin?

Face toner is meant to gently refresh your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. This means toner won’t irritate sensitive skin or cause excessive dryness. Choose face toner that is designed for sensitive skin and contains ingredients that soothe your delicate skin. Try Kalahari Toning Lotion that contains the natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory & soothing ingredients such as allantoin, rooibos tea, Kigelia africana, Kalahari melon seed oil and witch hazel.

When should I use face toner?

Face toners can be used twice a day, after using face cleanser and before applying serum and moisturiser. It is important to use a toner created for your skin type. The formula that contains acid can be too strong for sensitive skin. Use a toner morning and night, as long as your skin can tolerate the formula. If your skin gets dry or irritated easily, try once a day or every other day.
