ARE FACIAL TONERS REALLY NECESSARY? At COSMETIQUES LAUDUNTM, we believe the answer is... Definitely, YES! Using a natural Facial Toner is absolutely critical after cleansing to restore skin's natural pH Level and to maintain the natural Acid Barrier & moisture reserves. The barrier can become damaged or stripped away during the cleansing process, especially with many commercially available products today that are unfortunately chemically-based. (However, using an all-natural facial cleanser like our new "COQUETTE" Creamy Cleansing Milk will NOT strip your skin, because it's made from only pure, Essential Oils & Botanical Extracts that are by nature High in Fatty Acids/ natural Acidic content.)
Normal functioning of the skin's acid /moisture barrier is critical to keep bacteria, viruses, dirt, microorganisms, all germs & environmental toxins OUT of skin cells and away from being absorbed by the bloodstream. The skin is absolutely the largest organ in the body, and it's function is very similar to that of the liver- the body's detoxifier! This natural barrier for the skin also works to retain vital moisture, thereby retaining the skin's health and youthful appearance.
In addition to restoring the skin's pH balance, an effective natural Toner also Removes excess Cleanser and Tightens Pores. A toner created from all-natural & organic ingredients is best to choose, since these are mildly astringent & non-Irritating. The job of a good Toner is to actually prepare the skin to receive and hold on to moisture. It does this by naturally helping to restore & maintain the skin's pH/ Acid Barrier, or "Moisture Barrier," and increases its ability to retain moisture. So do your beautiful skin a BIG favor- Pick a Natural Toner to add to your Daily Skin Care Routine & see how much healthier and radiant your skin will be!
