One of the most rewarding things about Handcrafted Beauty, is that it allows us to meet and connect with so many wonderful people. Raquel and I are able to share our amazing skin care line and introduce customers to products that are both effective and safe. As we inquire about skin care routines we are constantly shocked to find that many of you do not use a toner?!?!? …..SAY WHAT?!?!
My friends……. toner is the star of the show…. and it is becoming a lost art. I get it… we want results, and toner is one of those products that is rarely the center of attention, the gentle formulation does not give the WOW factor. “But Linda, Linda… honey… listen…” (if you are confused by that sentence… you are missing out on the most adorable Youtube video ever… and you need to look it up… STAT), toner is important. Probably one of the most important and beneficial products you will use. It is time for this gentle giant to step out of the shadows and into the limelight. I am going to give you 5 reasons why we need to Bring the Toner Back (and yes I am typing this while the Justin Timberlake; Sexy Back melody plays in my head).
- Our Rose Water Toner starts with Organic Roses that are triple distilled using mineral rich imported Spring Water. This leaves us with water that is now infused with complex vitamins and minerals, to nourish and protect your skin. We then combine this “liquid gold” with an organic witch hazel. If you are looking for immediate results you need patience my little grasshopper. Like hitting the gym or taking vitamins, the progress will be slow yet impactful. Over time your pores will tighten, the antioxidant rich formulation battles the signs of aging, and you will see improvements in overall tone and texture. Toning is such a lost art, and no skin care regimen is complete without it.
Rose water has natural anti inflammatory properties which id great for soothing and calming the skin. The gentle formulation works great on those who suffer from sensitive skin or conditions like eczema,
- Due to the proprietary way we handcraft our toner, the antioxidant rich water has a deep pink hue. This beautiful formulation instantly wakes up your skin! In the morning my skin looks dull and lifeless, (Kind of like a zombie from the Walking Dead)…. But I spritz some toner on a cotton round and sweep it across my face…. And POW!!!! The subtle color gives my skin an amazing glow… and I look alive again.
4. Rose Water Toner balances the PH of your skin: This is important because PH imbalances can further distress skin,. Everything from irritation, acne or dryness can be stemmed from PH imbalance.
5. Rose Water toner has antibacterial properties which help combat acne. This is great for eliminating dirt and impurities that may still remain after cleansing.
As winter approaches Rose Water toner is a great way to not only nourish your skin, but it adds additional hydration. Both Brent and I use the toner morning and night. After every workout I use After Glow to remove additional toxins out of my skin and I follow this treatment with Rose Water Toner which helps remove any remaining charcoal, and makes my skin feel AH-MAZING.
Here is another great little tip. I set my makeup with the Rose Water Toner. This not only hydrates my skin, and gives my skin a glow so my makeup does not look flat, but it also adds a light spritz of nutrition on top of makeup for additional protection.
