Why You Should Use a Gentle Facial Toner

Why You Should Use a Gentle Facial Toner

Facial toners are an essential part of a well-rounded skincare routine, and for a good reason. They can help to remove any remaining dirt or makeup residue, balance the pH level of your skin, and prepare it for moisturiser or serum application. However, not all toners are created equal. Some toners contain harsh ingredients that can do more harm than good to your delicate facial skin. Hark & Zander's HempHydrate Refreshing Gel Toner is an excellent gentle toner with calming Aloe Vera, New Zealand Kiwi Fruit, and Hyaluronic Acid to soothe and replenish your skin.

Here are a few reasons you might want to give our fabulous gentle toner a try:

  • Gentle facial toners are better for sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, harsh toners with artificial fragrances and other harsh chemicals can irritate your skin, leading to redness, dryness, and even breakouts. Conversely, gentle toners contain natural ingredients that soothe and nourish your skin without causing irritation.
  • Gentle facial toners are better for all skin types. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, harsh toners can damage your skin's natural barrier, leading to dryness, oiliness, and acne. Gentle toners, however, work with your skin's natural balance, leaving it hydrated and healthy.
  • Gentle facial toners won't clog your pores in the same way that a harsh toner might. More intense toners can dry out your skin, leading to excess sebum production, which can clog your pores and lead to the appearance of larger pores. However, gentle toners contain natural ingredients that can help tighten pores and reduce their appearance (if this is your intention!).
  • Finally, many gentle toners are filled with natural ingredients that are often better for the environment than synthetic ingredients frequently found in harsh toners. Hark & Zander is incredibly passionate about sustainability and takes this into consideration when creating and packaging new formulas.

So, if you're looking for a toner that will leave your skin looking and feeling its best, opt for a gentle facial toner with natural ingredients. Your skin (and the planet) will thank you!
