5 ways a toner can improve your skin barrier

In the realm of skincare, toners play a pivotal role, especially when it comes to maintaining a healthy skin barrier. Our Clarifying Toner, enriched with Lactic Acid, Liquorice Root, and Amino Acids, plays a key part in your skin's well-being. Let's explore how this powerful blend not only soothes the skin after cleansing but also contributes to a stronger, more resilient skin barrier.

1. Gentle Exfoliation with Lactic Acid

Lactic Acid, a mild alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells that can clog pores and dull your complexion. By promoting cell turnover, Lactic Acid ensures your skin retains moisture more effectively, leading to a hydrated, brightened appearance. This process is crucial for maintaining a smooth texture and even skin tone, laying the foundation for a robust skin barrier.

2. Brightening and Balancing with Licorice Root

Liquorice Root is known for its ability to lighten dark spots and reduce hyperpigmentation, which helps to clear and even skin, gently brightening and soothing the skin in a way that protects the skin barrier.

3. Soothing with Amino Acids

Amino Acids are the building blocks of proteins and play a crucial role in soothing and repairing the skin. Our toner is formulated with a blend of Amino Acids derivatives to calm the skin after the cleansing process, reducing any potential irritation and supporting the skin's natural repair processes. This soothing action is essential for a strong, healthy skin barrier that can withstand environmental stressors

4. rebalancing the skins ph

The ideal pH level for skin is around 5.5, which is slightly acidic. Our Clarifying Toner is specifically formulated to match this ideal pH, helping to rebalance the skin's acid mantle after cleansing. This rebalancing act is vital for strengthening the skin barrier, as it restores the skin's natural defences against bacteria, pollution, and other irritant.

5. hydrating & unclogging pores

Alongside its exfoliating and soothing effects, the toner is specifically designed to deeply hydrate and clear pores for a brighter, clearer skin appearance. It removes remaining impurities and hydrates thoroughly, making the skin more receptive to following skincare steps. This boosts the effectiveness of subsequent products and strengthens the skin's protective barrier.

Incorporating our Clarifying Toner into your skincare routine is more than just a step towards clearer skin; it's an investment in the health and strength of your skin barrier. With regular use, expect to see a transformation in your skin's texture, tone, and overall resilience, paving the way for a brighter, healthier complexion.
