#TheSkinProject - Toner

If you're interested in joining in #TheSkinProject then please do go to Lianne's blog and come aboard!

This week it's all about toning, not the horrible weights stuff we have the do at the gym, but of course for your face. Until a few weeks ago I wasn't really certain what the 'toning' step was actually for however I have recently learnt that it rebalances the ph levels of your skin which cleansing can sometimes mess with as well as giving it one more extra deep clean. Personally for me it makes my skin feel refreshed and not feeling as exposed as it often does after cleansing. It seems to firm my skin back up ready for the rest of my Skincare and then make up! Aside from exfoliating, which you can read all about here, toning is my next favourite step in my Skincare routine as, like I said, it leaves my skin feeling fresh and, dare I say it? Toned, ready for the day ahead or to go to bed feeling pampered.



I've tried a few different toners now, Clinique, No7 and now I'm on L'Oreal's Skin Perfection range. Their toner feels really soft and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and dry like some toners can. It's really kind to my skin and for that reason I prefer it more before bed (it's a bit more of a pampering sensation that a refreshing one) than so much when I'm getting my skin ready in the morning. I'd rather something a little fresher for then, such as my beautiful skin one from No7. It's really good on your purse too as it's often on offer in boots (or I've purchased it from my local tesco before) and it's always under £5 even when it's full price! I think that I would like to experiment with toners a little more so if you have any holy grail ones that you use, please do let me know!
