With the weather warming, more people are spending time outside. Many people are working up a sweat or catching a lot of rays under the sun. Unfortunately, being outside will also expose your skin to the elements.
By using a natural purifying toner, however, you can protect and rejuvenate your skin. Purifying toners may be able to remove anything that’s jamming your pores, such as dirt and oils. Purifying toners may also help keep your skin moist and otherwise healthy.
So How Does a Natural Purifying Toner Work?
Purifying toners serve a different purpose than many general use moisturizers and toners. As the name implies, a purifying toner helps you purify your skin. This means removing waste, including dead skin cells and excess oils.
To be clear, the skin can often take care of these things on its own. Consider, for example, that we lose 30-40,000 dead skin cells a minute! By the time you finish this article, you’ll have lost at least 100,000 skin cells!
Crazy, right? Unfortunately, sometimes our body needs a helping hand. Not only could dead skin cells end up lodged somewhere that is difficult to remove, but many people also suffer from oily skin. Oils likewise can clog up pores, leading to acne and other conditions.
That’s were natural purifying toners come in. They provide an extra helping hand. Natural purifying toners may be able to help improve acne and other conditions. Sadly, acne can plague people young and old.
Natural Versus Non Natural Skin Treatments
Many treatments involve using harsh chemicals and products that may be effective at treating acne but aren’t gentle on the skin. Let’s take a look at the ingredient list for a popular but not so natural acne treatment product:
Salicylic Acid 2%. Inactive Ingredients: Water, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, C12-15 Alkyl Lactate, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Disodium EDTA, Benzalkonium Chloride , Yellow 5, Red 40, Fragrance.
Yeah, those words certainly are eye-catching, and not in a good way. Now, let’s compare the above with the ingredient list for our natural purifying toner:
Monnier’s Snow Parsley, Licorice Root, Astragalus, Poria Cocos, Artemesia, Ginseng, Cortex Moutan, Angelica Root, Mulberry Bark, Atractylodes, White Mulberry Leaf Aloe Vera, Glycerin (Plant sources), Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis), Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum (Fermented Sugar), Natural Lemongrass Fragrance, Potassium Sorbate, Jade Powder
Which one would you rather be lathering on your skin? Of course, you may need to use non-natural treatments to clear up acne and other issues. You should also consult with your doctor. However, you should also give some natural treatments a try.
