    Toners provident aging benefits such as refreshing a tired complexion, reducing the appearance of fine lines, increasing blood circulation, improving skin tone, speeding up cell turnover as well as promoting the sloughing off of dead skin cells.Toners can also improve the elimination of toxins, whisk away impurities and leave the skin feeling fresh and clean.

  2. Toner cleans the extra debris off your face and usually balances your skin. Toners are not necessary when cleaning the skin though - if you are tight on money, get a cleanser and moisturizer first, those are the most important.

    It moisturizes your face, in a way. Makes your face supple and gives a fresh feeling and look.
    Does not add color. Is not a makeup. (: You alwaayyyys want to buy alcohol free.

  5. Harsh chemical strip your skin of the oils it needs and makes the issue worse.

    Use a natural cleanser that is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Try clear organic honey and add a drop of lavender oil like i do. Use an aloe vera cream to replace moisture without blocking the pores and provide the proteins your skin needs to heal. Avoid eye area with the oil wash.

    i have used organic honey as a face wash fro 3 years and it cleared up my acne. i tried everything out there and was even referred to the dermatologist who wanted me to take roaccutane which has so many side effects i said no. i wish i found honey sooner.

    Try a toothpaste that contains tricolosan for the breakouts. Sudocrem works too. I use Clean & Clear Advantage 4hr Blemish Gel when i have painful spots which is rare now thanks to the wonderful healing honey.

    if your face is a little puffy when you wake up, try this toner recipe. Put 1/2 a cucumber with peel (chopped), 3 tablespoons witch hazel and 2 tablespoons distilled water in a blender or food processer and blender until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove solids and pour toner into a clean bottle with a tight lid. Store in the fridge for a longer shelf life.

    Apply a face toner and refresher. Cut a grape in half and smooth it over your face and under your eyes. After 1 minute, rinse your face with cool water and pat it dry.
