Do Toners Work? Anti-aging Tips To Keep Skin Looking Young And Dewey

Originally, toners were most commonly used with cotton to apply after washing the face with soap to balance out the skin’s pH. Old-school soap would leave residue on the skin, toners were designed to remove it.

Nowadays, toners are designed to not only balance out the skin’s pH but also increase the skin’s ability to retain added moisture from serums and moisturizers.

Typically, spray toners are more likely to be formulated to balance out pH and add moisture. Toners that need to be used with cotton tend to be for removing residue and can be more of an astringent, which can dry out the skin.

I recommend using a spray toner over a toner that you apply with cotton for several reasons:

  1. You use less product and need less product because spray toners apply evenly all over the face.
  2. Using cotton causes needless dragging of the skin.
  3. It is a more sanitary way to apply the product.

Spray toner all over face and neck until completely saturated (approximately 7-10 sprays).
