I hope you enjoyed last week’s blog on the benefits of using Performance Skincare’s™️ Exfoliating Face Wash. If you have not had a chance to view it, check it out HERE.
This week, we will learn more about the Performance Skincare’s™️ Face Toner. What it is and is it necessary in your skincare routine.
So let’s start off by learning what a face toner is…..
What is a face toner?
Facial toners hydrate skin, minimize the appearance of pores, help rid the skin of excess dirt and oil, and prep your skin for the rest of your products allowing them to absorb more easily. Toners are also a great anti-aging product as it helps smooth the skin and temporarily tighten it, making it look more firm and restoring its youthful appearance.
Who should use a face toner?
Absolutely everyone from oily skins to dry skins and everyone in between, there is no one who shouldn’t use toner! It hydrates dry skin, helps remove the oil that blocks pores in oily skin, calms sensitive skin, protects mature skin, and helps even out skin tone in combination skin.
How to pick a face toner?
As is the case with all skin care products, the key is choosing something that’s right for your skin type. Also, check the ingredients label and make sure you’re not choosing one with a bunch of chemicals or drying ingredients like alcohol, parabens, or artificial fragrances. Instead, opt for natural, plant-based ingredients like green tea which has antioxidant properties, aloe vera to smooth the skin, witch hazel to balance oils, or rose flower oil to temporarily tighten the skin.

Now that we know about face toners, let’s learn more about Performance Skincare’s™️ Face Toner.
Performance Skincare™️ Face Toner was created for all skin types and to remove impurities from your skin while calming and hydrating the skin to prepare for the next step in your skincare routine.
Like our exfoliating face wash, our toner includes botanical extracts that consists of antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. Check out last week’s blog where I discussed the botanical extracts.
Witch Hazel have long been used for skin care. They’re known for promoting an even skin tone and are often used to balance natural oils and help unclog pores.
Aloe Vera is renowned for its soothing effect, and provides a boost of hydration and alleviate temporary redness or discomfort.
Panthenol (Vitamin B-5) is a skin protectant with anti-inflammatory properties. It can help improve skin’s hydration, elasticity, and smooth appearance. It also soothes:
- red skin
- little cuts or shaving irritation
Panthenol helps with wound healing, as well as other skin irritations like eczema.
Fun Fact: When absorbed into the body, panthenol becomes vitamin B-5.
To penetrate the dermis, *alcohol has been included to penetrate deep within your pores to aid other ingredients in removing dirt and oil.
*NOTE: Alcohol has been given a bad rep over the years due to its drying affect to the skin. The alcohol in our toner has been specifically balanced with other ingredients to ensure dryness does not occur.
I hope you enjoyed this blog and understand why a face toner can be beneficial to your skincare routine and how your skin will benefit from better penetration/absorbency when using other products.
