To tone or not to tone

 

To tone or not to tone is a beauty question that has been asked for many years.

Toners (sometimes referred to as astringents) have had bad press in the past mainly because they were packed with harsh ingredients like alcohol that irritated and dried out the skin.

However, fast-forward to today and the beauty industry is a totally different landscape and toners have come into their own. Using a high quality toner that has effective ingredients is key to an effective daily skincare routine and at Pure-Beauty we have something that works for pretty much everyone.

Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner is a staple product in the range with a firm fan base for good reasons. This toner is made from a refreshing blend of skin-repairing Aloe, moisture binding Sodium PCA and soothing Lavender, Balm Mint and Arnica and when sprayed onto the skin will hydrate especially after cleansing. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours, it is suitable for all skin types and as well as being great for everyday use, it is ideal for helping skin after flying. This toner is most effective when used after performing the Dermalogica Double Cleanse followed by an application of your regular Dermalogica Moisturiser.
