Face toner – for effortlessly clean skin

Face toner has many names. It is also referred to as tonic or simply toner. But no matter what name it goes by, it is supposed to do one thing in particular: To simultaneously clean and nourish the skin on your face. The fresh kick is an added bonus. Face toner combines two worlds in one product and effortlessly achieves a balance between fresh cleaning and easy skin care. A face toner that is specifically designed for your own skin type is an essential part of your daily beauty routine.

How does face toner work on your skin?

The main effect a face toner has is based on its natural properties. Face toner is intended to remove dead skin and other build-up from the skin on the face, neck and décolleté. Due to its watery consistency, the best way to apply face toner is with a cotton wool pad. However, face toner also has additional effects that benefit your skin:

  • Refreshes and invigorates: Face toner is a lovely, cooling treat for your skin – in summer and any other time of year. Feelings of tightness in the skin are relieved.
  • Moisturises: Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid effectively hydrate the skin from the point of application.
  • Prevents impure skin: Clean pores that are free from make-up residue, sebum and other types of residue ensure a clean, healthy complexion.
  • Improves your complexion: Depending on the product you select and the ingredients it contains, a face toner can have either a mattifying or soothing effect.
  • Antioxidant properties: Oxidative stress is one of the main causes of premature skin ageing. This is why may face toners contain ingredients that act as free radical scavengers.

How do you ensure that you are getting the most benefit from a face toner? Be aware of what your skin needs. Sometimes less is more. Those with sensitive skin in particular should pay close attention to the ingredients and avoid alcohol and perfume.

How to use face toner

Have you finished your normal facial cleansing routine? Then it’s time for your face toner to take centre stage. Face toner effectively combines cleansing and skincare and should always be included in your skincare routine.

It can take several minutes to apply face toner correctly. This gives you time to properly relax. Soak a cotton wool pad in your face toner of choice and gently wipe the pad over the skin on your face, neck and décolleté. You will feel the beneficial effects with each stroke. Usually, face toner is simply left on your skin. The exception to this is micellar water, which forms a light foam and should therefore be rinsed off with clean water.

A face toner for impure skin contains additional cleansing substances, such as tea tree oil. It removes grease from the skin to reduce blemishes. That is why such face toners are not always suitable for dry skin. Generally, a face toner helps your skin to absorb additional nourishing ingredients. Therefore, you should always apply your normal facial care products after using face toner.

Ingredients used in face toner

To ensure that you can quickly find the face toner that’s right for you, we have provided a brief overview of commonly used ingredients below. Panthenol, glycerine and urea are substances in face toner that have a moisturising effect. Plant-based extracts such as chamomile, witch hazel and marigold reduce skin inflammation. Citrus fruit extracts, eucalyptus and menthol have a refreshing effect but can sometimes irritate sensitive skin. Healing clay, on the other hand, is generally well tolerated. In face toner, this ingredient purifies and mattifies oily skin.
