WHY CHOOSE A TONER WITH ANTIOXIDANTS?
A toner containing antioxidants will not only remove toxic residue but also provide a protective barrier against the many environmental toxins (smog, smoke, makeup, chlorine from tap water ) that affect the health and appearance of your skin. These toxins lead to premature aging of the skin.
Camu-Camu is the richest fruit source of vit C on the planet and Vit C promotes collagen production, keeping skin elastic and firm! Chlorophyll interacts with the harmful molecules that lead to oxidative damage, slowing down the visible aging process. Aloe contains antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.
WHY IS A TONER WITH ANTI-AGING INGREDIENTS ESSENTIAL?
In terms of aging, time ain’t on our side and neither is our modern world! Liposomes work their way inside the skin, releasing nutrition directly inside the cells. Their ability to penetrate deep into the dermal cells of our skin helps deliver the ant-aging nutrients where they are needed. Apple stem cells hold the power of youth in their ability to regenerate skin, making them one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients in modern skincare! Sea Kelp Bioferment increases the bioavailability (absorption of nutrients into the skin) that firms and softens the skin.
WHY DOES pH BALANCED SKIN MATTER?
The acid mantle is on the surface of the skin and acts as a protective barrier, composed of dead skin cells, fatty acids, and lipids. It works in a more acidic environment, at a pH of 5.5. When the balance is too neutral (at, say, a 6 or 7) that barrier breaks down, allowing allergens, pollutants, and bacteria to enter skin, while letting precious moisture escape.
When skin is at an ideal pH, it retains moisture and protects against environmental threats that can age you prematurely. A study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that, over eight years, women with more alkaline skin experienced a greater number of fine lines and crow’s feet than those with a more acidic balance.
Using a toner that balances the skin's normal pH is critical in slowing visible signs of aging and preserving that healthy glow! Opt for toners with White & Green tea and fruit acids such as Camu-Camu & Acai Berry Extract!
"Awaken toner makes skin appear brighter and healthier. I believe a hydrating toner is the secret to beautiful and vibrant looking skin" - Hilde, Facial Rejuvenation Consultant/Acupuncturist/Herbalist/Nutrition Coach
WHY CARE ABOUT PORE SIZE?
Large facial pores allow more dirt, oil and toxins to enter the skin and cause irritation, blackheads and breakouts. Small pores are desirable, making skin appear tight, smooth and clear. Choose a toner with Rose Hydrosol, Caffeine & Green Tea, pore tightening ingredients that tighten your facial pores and allow fewer oils and toxins to settle into the skin.
WHY CARE ABOUT EXTRA MOISTURE?
Hydration is essential to maintaining elasticity, smoothness, moisture and a more youthful appearance. Proper skin hydration reduces the signs of aging skin and provides an effective base for the application of facial cosmetics. A toner with Glycerin, a natural humectant that seals in hydration, revealing a glowing, long lasting dewy look. Camellia Sinesis increase skin’s permeability and seals in moisture. Hyaluronic acid locks in moisture, creating a plumping effect.
WHY TAKE THE EXTRA STEP TO CLEANSE OUR FACE?
While many cleansers work pretty well to clean our skin, they tend to be drying and only skin deep. But under the surface layer is where oils build up, leading to acne breakouts, dull looking skin and uneven color. Toner removes the excess oily buildup, residue and dead skin cells, thus assisting in reducing facial blemishes and preventing future breakouts. Rose hydrosol serves as a mild antiseptic with the ability to control and balance sebum production, making it great for both oily and dry skin types.
