Trying to figure out what a skin toner is and does? Here are some basic tips to help educate you on a healthy skincare regimen.
Q: I cleanse my face daily and then moisturize. Do I really need to use toner too?
A: Although toners are not one of the more popular skincare products, they should be, according to beauty experts. Even when you’re using the purest, most natural cleanser, a toner can help to remove any residual traces of cleanser. Toners also tighten the pores and help create an environment for your moisturizer to work more effectively. Many toners, like the Shamanuti Seaweed Toner in the summer Yuzen box, also contain anti-inflammatory ingredients that help reduce redness and restore pH balance.
Q: But aren’t toners harsh and drying?
A: Some might be, but all-natural, alcohol-free products like Shamanuti’s are formulated with gentle ingredients meant to soothe the skin, not irritate it or dry it out.
Q: Shamanuti’s toner has seaweed in it. What does the seaweed do?
A: The North Atlantic kelp in this toner was chosen especially for its ability to protect the skin from environmental elements, which in turn helps slow the aging process. Seaweed is also rich with more than 60 trace elements, and it’s a good source of vitamin B12.
Q: Should I use toner daily?
A: Shamanuti’s toner is gentle enough to use every day as part of your cleansing routine, especially for those with oily skin.
Q: Does Shamanuti make other skincare products that work well with their toner?
A: Yes, Shamanuti offers a full range of all-natural skincare products, like Activated Charcoal Cleanser, Chamomile & Cucumber Eye Gel, and Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. Check it out (and use your special Yuzen discount!) at www.shamanuti.com.
