Great Benefits of Skin Toner

If you are ever suffering from dull, dry, or loose skin,  you may want to add a  moisturizing toner to your skin care regimen. One of the great things about toners is that they will help improve your skin by cleansing and tightening the pores. The end result will be a brighter, smoother complexion, and more even skin tone.

A great toner should not dry out your skin and definitely not cause burning or irritation. Use toners for sensitive skin for the most gentle treatment. You may have to try a few before you find the one that works best for your skin type.

It is a great idea to apply a gentle moisturizing toner instead of, or after, cleansing the skin to prevent excessive dryness.


Using everyday ingredients you can create your own natural but effective toners at home.

Honey is long known as antibiotic and antibacterial which make it great for cleansing the skin. Apply a thin layer to your skin for 15 or 20 minutes then rinse with cool water.  Honey is also a humectant that traps moisture so the end result is awesome, especially with long term use.

Rose Water + Glycerin is also a powerful moisturizing combination. Mix 1 part rose water to 2 parts Glycerin apply with a cotton ball after washing your face and/or before going to bed. Your skin will definitely look refreshed in the morning.
