Why toner?
Toners  help increase penetration of subsequent product to optimise your transformation.

A toner is a  solution that effectively works to eliminate excess oil and remaining dirt in your pores that your everyday cleanser may not have washed away.(1)
Toners  restores the skin’s natural pH balance(2) so that the skin has just the balanced amount of oil to protect it without causing blockages
By removing oily buildup and residue, toners can help reduce acne and prevent future breakouts. Many people also like toners for the way they leave the skin feeling fresh and clean and make their pores appear tighter.

What to look for

When choosing the right toner for your skin, consider the product’s ingredients.Avoid toners or astringents that contain alcohol, as they can strip your skin of necessary oils and dry out your skin.


How to apply toner
Use toner after cleansing as part of your daily skin care routine.

"I put my toner in a spray bottle and mist my face with it. The toner lasts longer, there's no waste, and the mist feels nice, especially in the summer." www.obagi.com

Don’t rinse the toner off; instead, let it air dry. That way, the next product in your skin care regimen gets thoroughly absorbed and its ingredients get optimally utilized for maximum effectiveness.

If you’re already using a toner as part of your skin care regimen, then you know the difference it makes.
