Do you wash off toner?
Toners have calming effects on the skin, and if you’re using one without alcohol, then it will work wonders for your skin if you leave it off. But if it has got alcohol then you might even wash it off if it irritates your skin.
What does skin toner do?
Before moisturizing and following your facial cleanser, a face toner is a quick, absorbing liquid that helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup, correct and balance the pH of your skin, and helps control acne.
How often should I use toner?
If your skin is dry or showing signs of ageing, it’s appropriate to apply toner once or twice a day in between cleansing and moisturizing. Make sure you look for alcohol-free toners, as alcohol can severely dry out your skin if it’s already dry to begin with.
Can you apply toner with hands?
It’s best if you apply the first layer of toner when your face is slightly damp as opposed to totally dry. This first layer can be applied using a cotton pad or even just your hands.
