The essence of toning the face is to remove dirt and grease so that the skin remains clean and radiant. Using a natural face toner like Poppy Austin 100% pure rose water is a perfect way to delay the aging process. It is excellent for anyone who who is already on a skin beatification regime. Every person sheds skin, but it happens subtly such that you may not notice the process unless you are cleaning your skin with cotton balls. The dead skin will form dark spots on the cotton and some people mistakenly think that this means their skin is extremely dirty. Usually, its just the dead cells and some grease, and a typical toning process should take care of it. There is no need to repeat the process on one session as that can lead to over toning that eventually neutralizes any gains that would have been realized.
Face toning tightens the skin so that pores become smaller and more efficient at releasing waste as well as keeping moisture locked. This makes the skin become more radiant due to the hydrating effects of the moisture that is locked in. After using a face toner, the moisturizing process that follows is more efficient than it would be when no toning is done. The advantage of using a natural toner for the face is that it will contain all the essential oils and other water soluble compounds that are easy to wash off, in case they are not fully absorbed by the skin. Conventional toners rely on ethanol or alcohol related compounds that do more harm than good to the delicate facial skin.
Relying on plant extracts as in the case of rose water toner is good because it helps to keep the skinױs pH level neutral. For a person with an unbalanced pH, the neutralizing effects will allow him or her to better harness the healing properties of the essential oils. Use of natural toners is safe because the compounds that reach the face have no associated harmful effect to the rest of the body. For example, when spraying rose water to the face, it can reach the hair, and there will be no harm. In fact, the essential oils contained in the rose water are beneficial to the hair.
A good time to apply natural rose water face toner is just after bath when the skin is moist and ready to absorb its essential ingredients. After toning, remember to apply moisturizer to lock in the tonerױs ingredients on the face until the next face wash is due.
