Do you know what’s standing between you and your clear skin? The answer is toner! While cleansing-toning-moisturising (or CTM) is one of the most popular cleansing methods, we tend to conveniently skip toner and directly jump onto moisturiser after cleanser. This is the worst skin sin you’re probably committing!

Using a gentle, soothing toner in your everyday skincare routine has more benefits than you can imagine. From unclogging pores and restoring your skin’s pH balance to removing traces of oil and grime and refreshing your skin, toner remains to be the most underrated skincare product in your vanity kit. And that’s not all! You’ll be surprised to know that toner can also help reduce puffiness.

Here’s a hack that’ll help you say goodbye to puffy skin once and for all.

The hack—Put toner in the fridge

Just before applying toner on your face, put it in the fridge and let it cool for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, you can cleanse your face with a cleanser or face wash. Now, remove the toner from the fridge, take some on a cotton pad and wipe the pad across your face.

Another alternative is to freeze the product in an ice cube tray. All you need to do is squeeze some toner into a clean ice cube tray and freeze it. Once it’s frozen, simply sweep the toner ice cube across your cleansed skin gently. This will give a soothing effect and is a great skincare habit to include in your morning routine.
