When fall and winter comes around, there is nothing more important than having a routine that is based in hydration.
Toner vs Essence:
A toner is typically swiped over the face with a soaked cotton pad, and an essence is pressed straight into the skin. … Essences are better for soothing irritated skin, hydrating a dehydrated skin and helping your skincare absorb more effectively.
Why you should use a toner/essence:
Toner removes any last traces of dirt, grime and impurities stuck in your pores after you wash your face. When added to your daily skincare routine and used regularly, it can have major positive impact on the appearance and tightness of your pores.
Are toners really necessary?
No, toning is not necessary for skin health. Toners were originally developed to remove soap scum from the face when lye-based soaps combined with hard water left a sticky residue post cleansing. The alcohol-based toner removed the soap scum eliminating irritation and contributing to cleanser mildness.
These are my top 4 hydrating toners/essence’s for this winter that everyone should try 🤍

❄️ @rovectin_global Clean Lotus Water Calming Toner – consistency is a bit thicker than normal water toner, which is why it feels very moisturising when applied. It’s perfect for the dry winter season.
