Do you use a toner in your skin care routine? Originally designed to rebalance skin’s pH after cleansing, toners do so much more these days. Other than clearing every single trace of grime left on the face after cleansing, some toners help to add hydration back to the skin - one such type of toner are glycerin toners.
Benefits of Glycerin Toners
Glycerin based face toners help to keep skin thoroughly hydrated, even after cleansing. As a humectant skin ingredient, glycerin helps attract water to the skin to plump and rehydrate it.
These hydrating toners tend to be fortified with other hydration-boosting ingredients as well, like Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, and Rose Water.
Glycerin toners also tend to be alcohol-free - perfect for normal to dry skin. They’re great for sensitive skin too, especially if fortified with skin-soothing ingredients like Centella Asiatica and Oat Extract.
They have a perfect balance of being able to gently clean skin and balance pH without stripping or drying skin out. They’re gentle enough for daily use, too - ensuring your skin is clean is the foundation of getting the most out of your skincare routine!
How to Use a Glycerin Toner
Glycerin based toners should be used morning and night as a final sweep over the skin to ensure it’s perfectly clean before the rest of your skincare. Here’s how to use one - dampen a soft, cotton pad with your toner of choice before gently wiping it over the skin to grab any leftover makeup, skin cells, or even cleanser residue.
Remember, you don’t need to tug and pull on your skin! A glycerin toner leaves skin fresh, clean and ready for the rest of your skincare routine.
