The tonic can be used to remove grease residue from cleansing lotions and soaps. The pH of the materials used for cleansing is alkaline compared to the skin, so it is important to restore the natural PH of the skin with acidic tonics. Its beneficial effects include enhancing muscle tone, tightening wide pores, refreshing and hydrating the skin, thus preparing it for further care. Regular use improves peripheral blood circulation, thereby also improving well-being.
When should you use a tonic?
Toning is an important step in both the morning and evening skincare routines. Our skin also performs natural secretion processes at night, during which, among other things, sebum and sweat are placed on the surface of the skin, which we can effectively remove with tonic. After the morning tonic, our skin will feel fresher, softer, and cleaner. We can incorporate it into our evening routine as a step after cleansing with face milk or soap.
It is extremely easy and quick to use: pour a few drops of tonic on a cotton ball (preferably a recyclable cotton piece) to get it wet enough, then wipe your face, neck, and décolleté thoroughly.
What tonic to choose?
As with all cosmetics, it is important to use a product that is appropriate for your skin type.
For sensitive, reddening, and acne-prone skin, a tonic with high antioxidant content and rich in vitamin C is worth choosing. For liver-stained, freckled, pigment-stained, and sensitive skin, be sure to choose a non-alcoholic product. A tonic containing regenerating substances for young, water-deficient, stretchy skin should be used. For water- and nutrient-deficient and seborrheic skin, however, it is worth choosing a skin rejuvenating and extra moisturizing tonic.
