Extra precaution and care is needed when dealing with the protection of skin. Skin tonics are important in protecting the skin and in keeping up with the skin’s natural glow. There are two benefits of using skin tonics on your cleansed skin. First it helps in removing any traces of cleansing cream. Second is that it aids in restoring the natural health of the skin.
The only catch with skin tonics is that one is advised to avoid skin tonics that contain alcohol, especially when applied on oily skin. The reason being is that alcohol has the tendency to dissolve the natural protective barrier of the skin. The prolonged use of alcohol based tonic can lead to irritation because the protective barrier has been eliminated. Home made products are then much more recommended when we talk about using skin tonics.
Lavender, neroli, and rose water can be used as natural elements for skin tonics. These elements are more applicable to normal skin type. Some beauty salons in London would advise others who’ve got oily skin to use bergamot, lavender, lemon and juniper.
Those with pimple or acne problem are advised to also use ylang-ylang rose chamomile or geranium to rosewater. This helps in the reduction of these types of skin problems. To those people who have sensitive skin this time, they are advised to use or add neroli, chamomile, rose or jasmine with orange flower water. These ingredients help in making the effect milder since they have sensitive skin.
In terms of cleansers, skin toners are really effective in cleansing the skin. When applied to skin, it is more recommended that the person uses a damp cotton wool when applying the toner. The proper way of applying the toner is also considered to make sure the cleansing process is complete. The application should be done by wiping the neck portion, focusing on the creases area that can be found around the chin. The face is of course given attention too. Repeat the wiping process once or twice to ensure that the skin is clean.
If one properly uses these above mentioned homemade tonics, then this would definitely ensure the success of that objective in attaining glowing and healthy skin. Also, because this is homemade, you will not be required to go out of your way to visit a salon. If you are from London, then you might even have a hard time finding for the right salon. To save some time and energy, you could opt to use these homemade skin tonics that are safe for your skin.
