While toners are still readily available on the market, much of the reason why they where needed is no longer necessary due to developments in other skin care products.
Until the current development of modern cleansers, the ones that we applied in the past left a residue after they were used.
Due to this residue that was left on the skin after cleansing people would use toners to remove the excess as a final step in the skin cleaning process.
The cleansers that are available on the market nowadays don’t leave this residue, thereby eliminating the need for toners.
This hasn’t stopped the popularity of toners with many women who consider them an essential element in their skin care regime.
There is a misconception with some people that toners will go a long way in the process of helping to firm and tighten the skin.
While they might have some affect in this area their main benefit these days is the ingredients that are in them.
Manufacturers have added more antioxidants into their products in recent years as more people are becoming aware of the benefits that are made possible with antioxidants.
Due to this, most of the good toners on the market now have increased levels of these antioxidants.
For this reason alone there is added benefit of using toners after cleansing as this will help to maintain a better skin condition.
While you cannot expect to get the same levels of antioxidants in a toner as you will find in face creams, any additional amounts that you use will all be added benefits for your skin condition so that will make it worthwhile.
There is also the psychological benefits that some toners will make you ‘feel’ better from having applied them as part of your face care process.
That alone can do wonders for your complexion.
