How Often Should I Use a Face Toner?
Face toners can be a bit of a mystery to some and especially how often to use one. At Nakin we have a gorgeous face toner that is perfect for a double cleanse, deep cleansing, plus reviving the skin. This is our Purifying Face Toner and it is designed to be used twice a day, in the morning and evening, after first cleansing with a face cleanser like our Rejuvenating Face Wash or Advanced Cleansing Milk. It differs from our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic which is more of a treatment for lines and brightening, and they would not be used at the same time. You can use both together, using the toner in the morning and the exfoliator in the evening or as required. They do not both need to be used at the same time though. We should say that every toner made could potentially have its own directions on how to use it, so always read the product directions to find out how to use each individual face toner.
Toning is an essential part of a skincare routine that most people tend to ignore. While it might seem like an unnecessary step, toning is actually important to maintain healthy, glowing skin. Toners help to balance your skin’s pH, remove any remaining dirt and oil, and prepare the skin for the next steps in your skincare routine. However, you may be wondering, how often should I use a face toner? Well, we’re here to answer that question for you.
Firstly, let’s discuss what type of toner to use. More importantly than how much to use a toner is to use the right one, and at Nakin we always believe in using a natural toner like ours as some conventional ones can strip away natural oils from your face, causing dryness and irritation. This is because these ingredients can cause skin irritation or dryness if overused. On the other hand, if you’re using a hydrating toner with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, you can use it twice a day, every day, without worrying about overusing it. A good toner will help to double cleanse and can remove any excess cleanser, oil and a build-up of bacteria (which can lead to breakouts) but without stripping the skin.
Next, let’s talk about the frequency of toning based on your lifestyle. You should use a toner twice a day in the morning and evening after cleansing. If you are someone that uses lots of make-up, or lives in a highly polluted area, or has heavy work outs, then you can use the toner itself twice at night to be sure the face and neck are fully cleansed. use a toner before and after outdoor activity to protect your skin from environmental stressors.
Furthermore, the type of toner you use also affects the frequency. If you’re using a toner with active ingredients like salicylic acid or glycolic acid, it’s best to limit usage to once a day or a few times a week.
The frequency of toning your face can depend on various factors like skin type, lifestyle, season, and the type of toner you use. It’s important to listen to your skin and adjust the frequency accordingly. Toning is a simple yet effective step that can make a significant difference in your skincare routine. By incorporating a toner into your routine, you can achieve clean, balanced, and radiant skin. Find out more about our natural face products online at www.nakinskincare.com
