Toners do a fabulous job at cleansing your pores and constricting them. Especially, if you have acne prone skin, which is a result of clogged pores, toning your skin is a must for your skin type. When the skin becomes smoother, it becomes all the more difficult for bacteria to settle into your pores. Need we say more?
It balances the pH levels in your skin
pH balance stands for potential of hydrogen, which basically determines the skin’s alkaline-acidic ratio. Our skin is usually acidic with a pH balance between 5 and 6. However, at times, this balance is disturbed with the cleansing process that sometimes dries out the skin or makes it super oily. What a toner does is that it balances out the pH levels to normal so your skin doesn’t suffer from breakouts.
It removes residual makeup
While removing makeup involves using a makeup remover and cleansing your skin with the right face wash, toning is the final step towards makeup removal. It ensures that your pores are devoid of any form of debris.
Controls excess oil production
Along with reducing the appearance of large pores, toners also have the power to reduce excess sebum production in your skin. So if your skin perpetually feels like a frying pan, you might just be guilty of skipping the toning step in your skin care regime.
You might think that since toners reduce oil secretion, they make the skin dry. But this is hardly true. Toners balance out the oil in your skin while leaving your skin hydrated instead of intensely dry. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner, which is enriched with witch hazel and lavender extracts that not only add that much needed moisture but also tighten pores while removing impurities from your skin.
