WHAT IS A TONER AND WHY DOES EVERY MAN NEEDS TO USE ONE?

Although they appear like water, Toners contain beneficial skincare ingredients that gently remove oil and grease from the skin. A hidden gem in the skincare community for transforming skin texture...however, for most men they're overlooked.

Keep reading to discover the basics of what a face toner can do for you and your skin, and how you should use it.

WHAT IS A TONER?

Think of a toner as the 'finale' of your cleansing routine - it slows the production of oil by closing skin pores after washing your face. It also helps remove the excess dirt and grime from your skin that your face wash might have missed.

They are perfect for people with blemish-prone, oily and consistently dry skin or who use a lot of skincare products. Toners are typically used after you cleanse your face and before you apply moisturiser.

WHY USE A TONER?

The real question should be... 'Why not?!' The amazing thing about a toner is it's never too late to introduce it into your routine.

A good toner for men has the following benefits:

  • It minimises the appearance of pores
  • Controls oil and shine
  • Prevents ingrown hairs
  • Refreshens and primes your skin
  • Helps in cleansing

WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR IN A TONER?

There are many types of toners on the market so it's best to find one that works specifically for your skin type. You can decide which is best by looking at the ingredients.

Dry skin: Look for a toner containing Glycerin, it's a moistirusing powerhouse!
Ageing skin: You need to try one with Niacinamide, it has amazing antioxidant properties.
Sensitive skin: Ceramids are great at supporting the skin barrier so no irritation or itchyness!
Combination skin: Opt for Hyaluronic Acid for all round healthier, clearer skin.

LASTLY...

You can apply toner as a treatment to a specific trouble area, like your forehead and chin, or apply evenly across your face. Always allow at least 30 seconds before apply any additional skincare products afterwards.

Do you suffer from oily skin by midday? Chuck away the wipe or pad you use to combat it, in the long term it’s likely to provoke your skin to produce oil more quickly.

TOP TIP: Try using a toner to gently cleanse away the afternoon oil and encourage your pores to stay closed.
