It's very important to know which products are right for your specific skin type and the issues they deal with. Take this chance to learn why toners are great for your skin, and which Annmarie Skin Care toner is best for you.
What is a toner?
A toner is a hydrating skin care product that’s meant to shrink the look of large pores and further cleanse the skin, picking up any makeup or debris that may have been left behind. This is used after a cleanser but before a Serum or a Moisturizer.
Why use a toner?
A toner helps sweep away impurities and grime, leaving pores clean and less noticeable, preventing breakouts, and protecting acne-prone skin. It can be refreshing and add a little zip of energy to your daily routine. Some toners contain hydrating ingredients, which are important immediately after cleansing to set the stage for moisturization. Even for oily skin, toners can help you keep your skin clean and your pores unclogged.
The right toner for you
The most important aspect of finding the right toner for you is making sure it is tailored to your specific skin type. Below are two popular products from our herbal toner collection, take a look.
Normal to oily skin
Our Rosemary Toning Mist is the perfect toner for those with oily or sensitive skin types. It is rosemary hydrosol with added ingredients like aloe vera for hydration and thyme and neem to help control excess oil production without being drying.
Natural antioxidants like carnosic and rosmarinic acid protect from environmental stressors. Rosemary is even reputed to help brighten the skin and give it a firmer, more toned look.
Normal to dry skin
Made from 100% organic Neroli hydrosol, our Neroli Toning Mist is made from orange blossoms. This organic toner is perfect for calming and soothing, as well as balancing. For those who like more floral, soothing toners, this is the toner for you.
Neroli is an amazing ingredient on its own, with cleansing properties that help minimize the appearance of pores. It has a tightening effect that helps tired skin look livelier.
Our Botanical Hydration Mist is mist that goes beyond the typical toning mist—its formulated to awaken the skin with instant, nourishing hydration and a high content of antioxidants.
This botanical powerhouse is full of our favorite things, all non-negotiable in our clean beauty book: antioxidants, flavonoids, hydration, and soothing properties. It cultivates facial firmness and radiance without clogging pores, saturating mature skin in natural fatty acids that can help reduce the look of blemishes.
