WHY IS TONING IMPORTANT?
Toning helps to eliminate the leftover impurities and balance the skin’s pH level. It will provide a thorough cleanse, resulting in the smaller appearance of pores and deeper penetration of skin products. Not only does toning provide the skin with a final cleanse but also include other skincare benefits.
SEARCHING FOR THE RIGHT TONER
- Avoid alcohol-based toners. A good toner should never dry your skin. Alcohol breaks down the skin’s natural barrier, making it vulnerable to external aggressors. This could irritate your skin and lead to dryness or excess sebum production.
- Look out for water-based toners infused with Aloe Vera, Sodium Hyaluronate or rosewater for soothing and rejuvenating benefits. Ingredients such as Witch Hazel and Tea Tree Oil can help fight off blemishes and acne, bringing clearer skin. For anti-ageing and exfoliating purposes, select toners with mild levels of Glycolic Acid, AHAs and BHAs.

Does Glycolic Toner contain alcohol?
No. Glycolic Toner is an alcohol-free toner that contains hydrating ingredients to rebalance the skin pH while using our Glycolic Toner. It does not break down the skin’s natural barrier that makes the skin vulnerable to external aggressors.
Is Glycolic Toner effective on acne treatment?
Yes. Glycolic Toner contains 2% Glycolic AHA that penetrates deep layers of the skin, dissolving and sweeping away dead skin cells and excess oil to give clearer-looking skin and the appearance of smaller pores.
