Is Your Toner A To Do?
Toning is probably the most underrated and least understood step in the skincare process. However, a skin toner is an essential part of a good skincare routine. From traditional alcohol-based toners (too irritating!), to spray toners (not ocular safe!) to freshners (too drying!), toners get a bad rap, and are easily pushed aside for more talked about skincare products like serums and moisturizers.
But while they are often overlooked, they shouldn’t be! If you are new to toning your skin or you are looking for the best toner on the market, Cell Reboot Active Gel Toner’s alcohol- and astringent-free formula is a customer favorite that prepares skin to receive corrective actives and normalizes pH levels.
Herbal extracts and natural botanicals in Active Gel Toner prepare skin to receive corrective actives contained in treatment serums. Not only does Active Gel Toner prepare skin for treatment products it also boosts the results of cleansing and moisturizing. Adding a skin toner after cleansing will remove any residue that may have been left behind by your cleanser. And it is the first step in moisturizing your skin. Applying the right toner will moisturize the skin while creating a shield against bacteria, and normalize pH levels in the skin.
Balances pH Levels
Cold-pressed plant oils and hyaluronic acid in Active Gel Toner hydrate skin and adjust skin to optimal pH levels. When you cleanse your skin, some of the natural oils your body produces can be stripped away, disrupting the optimal pH balance of your skin. Using a skin toner following cleansing your skin helps to re-balance your skin’s pH levels while also preparing your skin to receive the beneficial compounds of your treatment product.
Provides Enhanced Cellular Protection
Active Gel Toner contains polysaccharides and antioxidants that provide enhanced cellular protection. Polysaccharides are responsible for the skin’s natural ability to hydrate and retain water and are also critical in skin repair and renewal. Antioxidants help fight free radicals, which can damage skin cells. Additionally, antioxidants calm inflammation, firm skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and repair damaged cells.
Ensures Ocular Safety
The easy-to-apply gel consistency of Active Gel Toner ensures ocular safety. Spray toners pose a risk of eye injury when sprayed directly on the face. Minimize the risk by using a gel toner, which goes on easily. Simply apply gel toner directly to your skin after cleansing. You can do this with your fingers or with a cotton ball or pad, our preferred method. An added benefit of applying a toner with a cotton pad is that it will help remove any residual makeup and dirt left on your skin after cleansing.
As with all Stemology products, Cell Rescue Active Gel Toner is free of parabens, phthalates, GMOs and harmful synthetic chemicals. Stemology products are ethically formulated, cruelty-free, utilize all natural ingredients and are intelligently organic.
