Quench, tone and firm the Skin

Toning the skin is a step that most people omit from their daily skin care routine due to time constraints and this is a real shame because it is quick and easy to include, and doing so visibly improves the skin’s appearance, health and texture.
The key benefits are the tightening and firming effect on the skin, along with
the cooling, soothing, hydrating and refreshing feeling that follows. A toner
can be used straight after cleaning the skin to remove any residual oil and traces of the cleanser used.
