Did you know buying a natural face toner was an option? I wasn’t aware until recently.
Now, there’s still some debate about toners. Are they necessary? Yes! Do you really need a toner? Yes! Do they even do anything? Yes! But since you’re here I’m assuming you already know that toners are awesome and can do great things for your skin.
What does a toner do for your face?
- Helps to restore your skin’s pH balance after cleansing
- Helps your pores look smoother and smaller
- Adds a layer of protection to your skin
- Can target concerns, like acne, dryness, ageing etc
- Helps to keep your skin hydrated and supple
Now, because they’re great doesn’t mean that they all have great ingredients which is cause for concern if you’re worried about chemicals, toxins etc.
I personally love to use as little chemicals as possible on my face and prefer to use a natural toner when I can.
For that reason, I sometimes dabble in a little DIY. But that ish can get old fast! Between the prepping, making sure I’m storing it properly and my SO looking at me like I’m nuts. But it’s all worth it, right?
However, sometimes it would be great to not have to DIY and still have an awesome toner that works and not have to stress about what chemicals are being absorbed into my skin.
If you’re also having this problem then I’ve got you covered. I’ve searched the internet for some awesome natural face toners you can use and not stress about what’s soaking into your skin.
FYI, if you’d like to take a shot at making your own toner I’ve got some simple and easy DIY toner recipes you can check out. These are so easy they’re foolproof.
