So Have guys been keeping up with us. We recently posted a post that featured steps of skincare.
Since then we’ve had requests to post about importance of using a toner.
So here it is,
Let us first start by discussing about the facial skin. Our Skin has a natural protective barrier that prevents infections caused by environmental factors. This protective barrier is known as the Acid Mantle, it is a thin layer made up of Sebum from the sebaceous glands which mixes with the sweat, amino acids and lactic acid to form the Barrier which is also referred to as the skin’s pH.
Ideally the pH should be slightly acidic and around 5.5.

Note: A healthy pH contributes to a healthy skin!
👀Your pH can be disturbed:
Products that can cause a disturbance the pH of the skin includes your daily cleanser, facial soaps as they tend to be too alkaline.
Tip: Remember your skin is slightly on the acidic side naturally.

Tip: Look for products that claim to be pH balanced.
Choosing a cleanser that is pH balanced and slightly acidic can help maintain the pH for all skin types.
Using Acids in your skincare can also disrupt the pH, hence it is absolutely essential to use a toner.
Now here’s what a Toner does and why you MUST Incorporate one in your ROUTINE.
Toners help balance the pH, the reason why they are referred to as the second step of skincare. Using a toner after cleansing your face helps to balance the pH.
A balanced skin barrier helps prevent infections, breakouts and also helps prevent skin ailments like rosacea and eczema.
