Why Do I Need A Toner For My Skin Care Routine?

The basics of any good skin care routine start with a great cleanser. Cleansers have been designed to lift away the dirt, makeup and impurities from your skin, but did you know a toner is the finale of your cleansing routine? If you don’t have a toner in your routine, read on.


So what is a toner? 

Facial toners are a liquid and a must-have to any skin care routine because they help to remove deeply embedded debris and any last traces of your cleanser. Treat it as your final cleanse, an essential step. We include toners after our second cleanse, using a cotton round to spritz on a generous amount then gently sweeping across the skin in swift and firm motions. We guarantee there will be something surprisingly left from your skin on your cotton round…


Benefits Of Toners 

Our skin is naturally acidic, so a toner like our TONING ESSENCE is ideal for balancing your skin’s pH level and providing a quick refresh. Toners create a smooth and even base to give our serums and moisturises the best route to absorb into our skin and create a protective moisture layer. We also recommend to use our TONING ESSENCE as a facial mist– perfect for a hydration boost during the day!


How Do I Pick The Right Toner For Me? 

Choosing the best toner for your skin care routine is where TEMPLESPA comes in to help! We have our TONING ESSENCE and GLOWCOLIC toners in our collections that do a brilliant job in your skincare routine!

Starting with our TONING ESSENCE, it is our alcohol-free facial toner that is super light and refreshing with a beautiful scent inspired by the Mediterranean. We’ve included ingredients like tomato, lemon, orange, melon, rosemary, basil, mandarin, lime and ginger to help refine skin look, tone and hydration in one.

While some toners may cause your skin to feel dry and stripped of its essential oils, we’ve ensured TONING ESSENCE leaves your skin feeling calm and soothed, ready for your moisturiser. When it comes to toners, pick one that’s full of moisturising and nourishing goodness that will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated.

GLOWCOLIC is our best-selling glycolic toner in the UK which is full of multi-acids to exfoliate for smoother and glowing skin. Our blend of glycolic, mandelic and lactic acids along with vitamin c and Mediterranean fruit extracts help to gently exfoliate and nibble away dead skin cells, which can result in dullness.

If your skin appears dull and uneven, add in GLOWCOLIC after cleansing to see a difference to your skin. We always recommend trialling for 3-4 weeks to discover the difference of adding a new product to your skin care routine.

Are you a fan of toners and can’t wait to try TONING ESSENCE or GLOWCOLIC? The power of a toner elevates your skin care routine and delivers an essential job for your skin. We hope you’ve been inspired to try a new toner and discovered the benefits of toner in your skin care routine.
