Do You Really Need to Use a Toner?

Toners are one of the more overlooked products in skincare routines, but they can be one of the most versatile products in your beauty cupboard. If you aren’t already using a toner, here’s why you need to add to add one into your daily skincare ritual:

Post-Cleansing Refresher

After cleansing, your skin might still have lingering impurities. Wiping your favourite Eve Taylor toner over your skin using a cotton pad can remove any residual dirt and impurities that your cleanser might have missed. 

Also, toners help in balancing the skin’s natural pH levels, which is vitally important for maintaining a healthy skin barrier. This step ensures your skin is fully prepped for the next part of your skincare routine.

Pre-Moisturising Spritz

Before applying moisturiser and after applying your Eve Taylor serum, mist toner over your skin to create a damp surface that allows your moisturiser to absorb more effectively. It helps to plump up your skin, ensuring that the moisturizer penetrates deeply and provides maximum hydration. The dampness from the toner also helps in locking in the moisture, making your skin look fresher and more supple.

Hello Dewy Makeup!

Toners aren’t just for skincare! — they can also be added to your makeup routine for a fresh and dewy look. After applying your makeup in the morning, spritzing toner over your finished look not only keeps your makeup looking fresh throughout the day but also gives your skin a refreshed and healthy glow. The gentle mist of toner also helps to blend your makeup together into the skin making it the perfect addition to your lunchtime top up makeup routine.

Cooling Body Mist

On hot and humid Summer days, there is nothing better than a refreshing spritz of toner across the face, neck and chest for an instant cooling effect. The cooling sensation of the toner can also help to soothe any redness or irritation caused by the heat. 

The Eve Taylor Purifying Toner is great post shower after the gym to prevent body acne – A quick spritz on the chest and upper back will keep them pesky blackheads at bay!

Hydration Booster

In environments where the air is dry, like heavily air-conditioned offices, your skin can quickly become dehydrated - Dehydrated skin brings a whole new host of skin issues! A quick spritz of toner throughout the work day can help fight this dryness by maintaining your skin’s natural moisture levels. 

The little boost in hydration allows your skin to still feel comfortable and looking healthy while preventing the tight and flaky feeling that often comes with dry air. All of Eve Taylor London’s toners come in 50ml bottles which makes them perfect handbag sizes to bring to work or a pretty addition to your office desk!
