Most people would probably say that toner refreshes and cleanses the skin, and they would be right – but there’s so much more to it than that.
What is so special about toner? It may not look much different to water, apart from a slight tint. Let’s take a closer look at how toner gets it special properties. As its name suggests, facial toner is a type of tonic. Derived from the Greek word tonikòs, a “tonic” is an invigorating or fortifying substance which is used either internally or externally. For example, herbal tonics are a staple of traditional Chinese medicine, where they play a key role. Their effectiveness is drawn solely from the power of nature, such as plant extracts. Botanical extracts are also what give facial toner its hidden power, and these can be coordinated to suit the needs of different skin types. For example, LOGONA Organic Mint & Witch Hazel Facial Toner for combination and blemished skin contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, balancing and regenerating natural substances such as extracts of sage, rosemary, green tea, magnolia and black cohosh as well as mint oil. Like they would in a tonic, these plant extracts have health-giving properties when they are used to make a facial toner: they help to keep skin healthy and refine the complexion. This power makes facial toner an important part of any skincare routine, between cleansing and moisturising.
In short, it does three things:
Facial toner gives your skin a refreshing boost and completes the cleansing process – for example, by removing water residues such as limescale.
Its carefully selected active ingredients make a valuable contribution towards a balanced complexion.
It makes any moisturisers you apply afterwards more effective because facial toner ensures that the skin is properly hydrated. Well-hydrated skin absorbs active substances better than dry skin. Our tip for ultra-fresh spring and summer skin: pour toner into your hands and apply it generously to your face and décolleté after cleansing.
