 3 lesser-known ways to use a toner

If there’s one skincare product that has the most people divided on its usefulness and efficacy, it has to be a toner. But here’s the truth: A toner prevents your skin from getting too dry or oily post-cleansing, tightens pores and even helps improve product absorption, making them an indispensable part of any beauty routine.

And that’s not all. A toner is a versatile product that can be used in several different ways. Here are three lesser-known ways to use a toner for soft, healthy skin. Check ‘em out…


01. As a face mist

To soothe inflamed skin

We all need an instant pick-me-up for the skin in the middle of a hot summer day. But if you don’t have a face mist, don’t fret; your toner can double up as an amazing face mist too. Simply transfer some to a bit of spray bottle and spritz it all over your face to instantly freshen it up.

Erratic sleep cycle, stress, and increased screen time eventually result in stubborn dark circles and puffiness. But here’s how you can use a toner to refresh your peepers. Simply refrigerate an alcohol-free toner for about 10 to 15 minutes, saturate two cotton pads with it and place it under each eye for a couple of minutes. This simple DIY eye mask is exceptionally soothing and will do away with dark circles and puffiness in no time!

While shaving is a great hair removal method, using a blunt razor, not using shaving cream or forgetting to exfoliate before using a razor can lead to post-shaving inflammation and razor bumps and burns. But simply spritzing on a skin-soothing toner immediately after shaving and following it up with a moisturiser can calm your skin in a matter of minutes.
