Toners are often underestimated and forgotten by most of us compared to the other products we use. Toners are used not only for our skin but for our hair and body too. There is so much information available online on how to make use of homemade hair toners. The common misconception among people is that oily-skinned people do not need to use a toner.
Toners prevent impurities from entering into the open pores and create a shield of protection on our skin. Body toners help to firm up body flab and beautify our body. There are anti-ageing toners that revitalize and rejuvenate our bodies.
Hair toners are used just before one colour hair or between re-toning hair color. They help to even out color smoothly. One must choose a toner according to one’s skin type, which could be oily, dry, sensitive, or combination skin. Avoid alcohol-based toners on sensitive skin. Use a moisturizing toner for dry skin and combination skin; for oily skin choose one with salicylic acid in it, this is applicable for acne-prone skin too.
Homemade toners made using ingredients such as lemon juice with peppermint, ginger and basil leaves, papaya, tomato, and cucumber toner, watermelon and honey, oatmeal, and yogurt, apple and honey, etc. Ensure that you do not neglect the use of a toner and add it to your beauty regimen.
