Do You Need a Facial Toner?

An essential part of complete skin care routine includes facial toner. It helps to tighten and tone skin texture and pore appearance and remove traces of oil, dirt, product residue, grime, and germs. Facial toners need to be slightly astringent. However, they need to avoid drying the skin or removing too much skin oil which can lead to irritation. This is why I’ve created a unique facial toner that walks the fine line of creating pore tightening without drying.

do you need a facial toner?My Naturally Hydrating Pore Minimizing Facial Toner™ is a unique blend of the best, skin-toning ingredients sourced from the highest-quality producers.

To create my Naturally Hydrating Toner, I use certified organic witch hazel (derived from the North American shrub Hamamelis virginiana). Witch hazel has been used in Native American traditional medicine to treat skin irritation. It contains natural tannins which can tighten and tone pores without drying or irritating skin.

And note that not all commercially-available witch hazel is equal.

Many witch hazel products contain more alcohol than witch hazel. Or, the extraction process is done by methods that capture less of the active components that make witch hazel so effective for use as a toner. With this in mind, I have carefully sourced my witch hazel from the finest and most particular supplier. It cost a little more, but it matters because witch hazel has so many time-honored benefits for your complexion.

In the Naturally Hydrating and Pore Minimizing Toner, I also blend witch hazel with certified organic and food-grade Bulgarian rose water.

Also a favorite facial toner used throughout history, rose water is considered mildly astringent and soothing. Rose water hydrosol creates the base of my Naturally Hydrating Toner instead of distilled water. I had to search long and hard for the perfect rose hydrosol because many were not prepared to maximize freshness or the components were not fully natural or organic. I learned that with this particular ingredient-quality varies wildly! To boost skin hydration, I added my two favorite and highly effective humectants to the facial toner: organic, vegetable-derived glycerin and vegetable-derived hyaluronic acid.

Together, my facial toner is toning and astonishingly astringent while at the same time, soothing and hydrating.

My skin craves this toner, and I hope yours will too. It's why I included it in my Ultimate Pigment Fading and Sun Damage Repair Kit - professional complete skin care that is a game-changer for sun-damaged skin.
