Spotlight: Cleansing Toner

“What is a cleansing toner, and why should I use it?” If this sounds like your question, keep reading!

Our Cleansing Toner contains witch hazel, which is an astringent. This means it cleanses, tightens, balances oil levels, and tones. Witch hazel helps to fight breakouts, dissolve dirt, minimize the appearance of pores, tighten the skin, and helps your skin stay clear, healthy, and younger-looking. Think of an astringent as a more powerful toner. 

And, having a way to cleanse twice is crucial if you wear makeup!

“Washing your face and neck with a gentle cleanser before applying makeup for the day is best for the skin. At night, a double cleanse is recommended. One cleanse is normally not enough to make sure the skin is completely clean, especially at night. I recommend a double cleanse, using an oil followed by a cream,” says Joanne Evans, one of the top facialists in the United Kingdom.

After you wash your face with your favorite bar of HD Soap, you will be surprised to see how much more dirt and grime this Cleansing Toner removes from your skin (don’t forget to shake the bottle first!) when you use a cotton cloth or cotton ball. This is the all-important double cleansing mentioned above!

In addition to being an astringent, the Cleansing Toner is also moisturizing. This is because it includes aloe, jojoba oil, and meadowfoam oil. These hydrating ingredients are soothing and excellent at helping to repair skin. They also provide a boost to collagen production, which is a critical component of keeping skin appear younger. These three all moisturize without clogging your pores; this combination balances out the skin’s oil level. They are also safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Our Cleansing Toner also utilizes calendula extract. This extract helps protect your collagen levels and the elasticity of your skin. Like some of the other ingredients, calendula extract works to improve tighten skin and fight blemishes and inflammation, plus the added benefit of antioxidants.

If the smell of witch hazel isn’t your favorite, consider purchasing our Cleansing Toner with Lavender; you’ll love the added benefits of lavender essential oil! This includes the calming properties of lavender known to help release stress, anxiety, and tension. Lavender can help your skin repair itself, and it can also help tighten and tone your skin! If you deal with itchy, red, or inflamed skin, lavender should be your choice!

Make sure you follow up your cleansing routine by moisturizing with your favorite HD product such as our Hair Serum (it makes an awesome face oil!), Calendula Balm Stick, Orange & Olive Oil Balm, Orange & Olive Oil Balm with Vitamin C, or the Harmony Facial Cream. (Don’t forget your Eye Serum before you moisturize!)
