Toner is an essential step to daily skincare routine. It helps tighten pores, balance the skin’s pH, remove excess oil and dirt, and helps absorb products. If you’re not toning after cleansing, especially with a natural alcohol-free toner like Rose Chamomile H2O or Lemon Balm H2O, you are missing out on great thing for your skin.
Healthy skin requires water and oil. Water keeps skin hydrated and functioning properly. Oil helps seal in the moisture while also delivering nutrients and protection.
The best way to use a toner is with your facial oil. Spritz a generous amount on your face and press into skin to assist with the absorbing. Follow up with massaging a facial oil onto your skin.

Here are 6 ways to use a natural toner.
After cleaning your face
Toning after cleansing is an important step to incorporate into your skincare routine. It removes any oil, dirt, and debris left behind after cleansing.
It’s a well-known fact that moist skin can better absorb topical products than dry skin. If you have dry skin, toning before applying a face oil or moisturizer will help maintain the moisture. If you have oily or acne skin, it will help with balance your skins sebum and absorb any use of topical acne treatment.
Customize your clay mask
Mixing a clay mask with water is cool, but using my natural botanical waters are even better. Try mixing Rose Chamomile H2O with the Klayveda Mask for extra hydrating or the Lemon Balm H2O with the Vedamin-C Mask for an extra blemish-fighting power. Each toner is specifically paired with a mask to increase the benefits the mask has to offer.
Set your makeup
You can toss away those setting sprays filled with awful synthetics and let your H2O toner double up as a makeup setting spray instead. You’ll also be adding free-radical fighting antioxidants all day.
Refresh throughout the day
Feeling stressed, need a pick-me-up, or spending time in the hot sun?
Stash your toner in your purse to refresh your mind and face throughout the day with an antioxidant and aromatherapy toner. Spritzing your face will keep you relaxed and refreshed. Hydrated and reinvigorated at the same time.
Not only are toners part of the 2nd step of your skincare routine but misting on a toner made with botanical hydrosols such as Rose Chamomile H2O and Lemon Balm H2O, it floods your senses with uplifting scents that improve your mood or keeps you feeling calm.
A one Step morning cleanse
Be careful to not over-cleanse your face. Unless you’ve been mud wrestling in your sleep, it’s not always necessary to repeat the same cleansing routine in the AM. Over cleansing can strip your skins natural oils and disrupt the acid mantle and balance of keeping clear skin.
You can simply refreshing your face with a non-alcoholic natural botanical toner by spritzing your face or pour it into a cotton pad and gently wipe your face. You can try these natural alcohol-free botanical toners Rose Chamomile H2O and Lemon Balm H2O.
