Why OH Why do I really need a TONER ???

                                While you are toning your bodies     
                                  Tone your face too??  Really??

Out of all the skin care products on the market today, toners are a mystery to most people.  Many of you want to know.. why you need a toner??

My Bellanina blog shares some great answers to that question:

Aside from giving your skin an opportunity to be relieved of further makeup and cellular debris, toners give our skin a pH balance.  Our skin should stay between 5 and 6 pH.  After cleansing, the pH balance gets disturbed and when this happens it has to work harder to regain it's balance, which can also mean it will produce more oil.  Using a toner helps to restore the balance quickly.
Another side benefit of using a toner is to get the hard water residue off of the skin.  That white streak that you see on the side of a freshly washed glass that has just been rinsed is chlorine and hard minerals.  These hard minerals are left on your skin after you rinse off the cleanser products.  These minerals can dry your skin.
Removing oil with toner gives the skin an appearance of smaller pores and smaller pores makes skin look smoother and more youthful.  Toners can help close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing.  This reduces the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin.
Some toners have humectant qualities, which mean that they help to bind moisture to the skin.   We recommend that if you don’t want to wash your face in the morning, use a toner to get the oil or dirt off of your skin.  Your skin will feel fresh, softened and revitalized.

Come by Chenal Skin Care Center and get your toner.  We have several toners by SkinCeuticals to choose from with great exfoliating properties.   And Obagi has a great mild soothing toner.
Do not let another day go by without toning your face,  now that you know how important it is for you skin.  Virginia
