Benefits of Using a Toner: Embrace the Magic of Botanical Beauty

Benefits of Using a Toner: Embrace the Magic of Botanical Beauty

We’ve already outlined the potent benefits of our Hella Hydrating Serum by breaking down its two simple, yet effective ingredients: organic cold-pressed rosehip oil and hyaluronic acid. Fresh Face has also had its moment in the sun, so today we want to share everything you need to know about our best-selling Magical Mist Toner and why it is an unskippable step in your skincare routine!

What are the benefits of Magical Mist Toner?

Keeping your skincare routine simple and effective not only saves you money, but also allows your skin to find its balance so your natural glow can shine through. The reason we included a toner in our routine is because it has multiple benefits. Read on for all the deets!

1. Provides a dewy surface to apply your serum

When applying your Hella Hydrating Serum, it absorbs so much better when the skin is slightly damp. This moisture helps to activate the hyaluronic acid and increases the penetration of the active ingredients in your serum for better results. Magical Mist Toner provides that perfect dewy surface to help spread your serum and improve its absorption!

2. Helps maintain a healthy skin pH

We’ve written all about the importance of a balanced skin pH here. The TL:DR is that when the skin’s  pH, also known as the acid mantle, is disrupted it can negatively affect your complexion, leading to dry skin or acne, it can even promote premature aging–that’s anything but magical! Our Mist has a pH of around 5.5, which is right in line with the healthy acidity level your skin loves. It’s also alcohol-free, so it won’t dry out your skin or kill off any of your beneficial bacteria, keeping your pH happy and healthy!

3. Alcohol-free to support your skin’s microbiome

We mentioned it above, but it deserves its own point–our Magical Mist Toner is completely alcohol free. While you might think you need alcohol in your toner to keep your skin clean, it can actually dry out your skin, causing flakiness and irritation. It’s also antibacterial, which means it can kill off the beneficial bacteria that make up your skin microbiome. A healthy skin microbiome forms a protective barrier against pollution, foreign microbes, toxins, free radicals and allergens.

It also helps your skin retain moisture and crucial nutrients required to give you that healthy glow from head-to-toe! You can read more about how to support your skin’s microbiome here.

4. Infuses your skin with vitamins and antioxidants

Our Magical Mist Toner is made from pure organic plant distillates. Distillation is a gentle way to obtain the beneficial compounds, such as antioxidants and vitamins, from fresh organic plant materials. That means that all these benefits are intact when you spritz your toner onto your skin. Each spritz infuses your skin with these potent plant botanicals to nourish your skin cells and provide anti-inflammatory support.

5. Hydrates, balances, tones, calms and soothes your skin

The blend of organic herbal distillates we chose for our Magical Mist Toner was thoughtfully curated in order to support your skin’s most common needs including balancing your pH, toning your skin, and calming and soothing irritation. The fact that it is a hydrosol means that it also hydrates your skin with every spray. As we age, our skin often needs more hydration to stay plump and healthy and prevent susceptibility to future skin damage.

Bonus Benefit: Hydrate and refresh your skin any time of day!

With the warmer weather fast approaching, one of our favourite ways to use Magical Mist is as a refreshing spritz throughout the day. If you’re working at home, keep it in the fridge for a cooling spray morning, afternoon or evening. Heading to the beach? Pop a bottle of Mist in your beach bag to hydrate and refresh your skin post-sun exposure. You can enjoy the refreshing and calming aromatherapy benefits from organic lemon balm and rose geranium, while you cool down all summer long.

The above mentioned benefits don’t come from nowhere. We chose specific plant botanicals that are known for their skin-soothing, hydrating, and balancing properties!

  • Organic Rose Geranium: A naturally calming botanical packed with antioxidants that brightens the skin and reduces skin irritation. It also has antibacterial properties which help prevent bacterial acne.
  • Organic Calendula Flower: This flower is known for its skin soothing and calming effects. Its skin-nourishing benefits promote more supple skin, while the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help protect your skin from the elements.
  • Organic Lemon Balm: This beautiful herb from the mint family is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory for the skin, which means it can help reduce swelling and skin irritation. It’s also rich in flavonoids and rosmarinic acid that act as antioxidants to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Organic Witch Hazel: This distillate helps to balance pH and tone the skin, while also infusing it with antioxidants. It also helps control oil production, which is great for preventing acne or clogged pores, encouraging a healthy, glowing complexion!
  • Organic Cucumber: This plant botanical contains many antioxidant compounds to help reduce inflammation, while also deeply hydrating your skin. It also has soothing and cooling effects, which makes it great to spritz on sunburnt or irritated skin.

With all the magic contained in this beautiful blend of plant hydrosols, it’s no surprise that our amazing community kept asking for a larger size. Well, your wish is granted.

We are firm believers in the concept of #skinimalism, which means we never want to add any products to our skincare routines unless they serve a valuable purpose. That’s why our flagship Skincare Bundle contains our Fresh Face Cleanser, Magical Mist Toner, and Hella Hydrating Serum.

These three products work synergistically to support your skin microbiome and skin barrier for your healthiest, happiest, glowingest skin ever, no need for complicated 10 step processes that can leave your pores clogged, your skin dull, and your bank account empty!

We hope this article has encouraged you to ditch the complicated skincare and focus on curating a routine of simple and effective products. Including a gentle, plant-powered toner in your routine can help to balance, hydrate, nourish, soothe, and protect your skin while also creating the perfect dewy surface to apply your serum, for your brightest complexion.
