Most people know it's crucial to moisturize after masking, but adding a spritz of toner is an often overlooked step. Not only does a high quality toner work as skin prep, but it works post-mask (or post-exfoliator) too.
"Saturating your skin post-mask with a good toner will once again normalize the pH level, and skin that has been treated by the mask is now ready for a fresh drink of toner. You can even massage in the toner with your fingertips for additional penetration and a tingly, fresh mini-massage before applying your serum or moisturizer." – Teresa Stenzel
Use toner after mask to provide a myriad of different benefits to the skin:
- Saturate the skin with problem solving ingredients
- Keep skin hydrated
- Prevent premature aging
- Soothe irritated skin
- Help your skin better absorb serums and moisturizers
- Protect your skin from outside irritants
Some skin care pros recommend toning both before and after your mask, but it depends on your personal preference and your skin needs.
Whether you choose to tone before or after masking (or both) the important thing is to make sure you choose the right formula for your skin type and concerns:
