Natural Skincare ProductsToners have long-lasting positive effects on your skin.

Whether you’ve been struggling with oily skin or you wear makeup regularly, this skincare product will be your best friend in need every day of the year. Once you incorporate a toner into your routine, you’ll witness a massive change in your skin’s appearance and overall health.

Contrary to popular belief, toners are not only for older people, and neither are they only for women. If you start using face toners at an early age, they will preserve your skin’s youth and health. However, when choosing a toner, you should conduct a bit of research and determine the ingredients would work best on your skin.

At Herbiar, we have four toners for four different skin concerns. First, however, we need to understand what toners are, how they are used, and what are the ingredients in a toner do. So, without further ado, let’s learn more about these skincare products.

What Are Face Toners?

Have you seen the clear liquid bottles in the skincare or makeup section at the mart? These clear or slightly tinted bottles are known as face toners. These products contain ingredients that will soothe your skin and pack in the natural moisturizers of your skin.

Toners contain many popular soothing ingredients; however, it’s these three exfoliating acids most skincare gurus look for in these products:

  • Lactic Acid
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Niacinamide

How Are Toners Used?

Most toners are used post-facial cleansing. In addition to packing moisture, they get rid of any remaining debris or particles left behind. Some toners might have different application methods, but here’s what’s generally required:

  • Wash your face with a water-based cleanser
  • Before applying serums or a moisturizer, apply a generous amount of toner onto your face
  • Gently pat or press the toner onto your skin
  • Please don’t use a cotton pad as it will absorb most of the toner

What Do the Exfoliating Acids Do?

Each exfoliating acid, mentioned earlier, has a different function. Let’s take a look at what each of these ingredients does:

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acids belong to the salicylates class of drugs. They dissolve excess oils from the skin and help remove dead skin from the top layer. Salicylic acids are known to soothe the skin and speed up the healing process. They are best for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

Lactic Acid

Lactic acid is a mild chemical byproduct of anaerobic respiration. It helps reduce signs of ageing, such as dark spots or hyperpigmentation. So, if you have an uneven skin tone or enlarged pores, look for this ingredient in your skincare products.


Niacinamide has the benefits of both the acids mentioned above, and it is safe to use for any skin type. In addition, it’s a form of vitamin B-3, which helps build keratin. Keratin is what supports the firmness and resilience of the skin.

This skincare ingredient protects the outer layer of the skin, removes oil, makes pores smaller, and gets rid of pimples and acne. Niacinamide is a great ingredient to have in your products, no matter what your skin concern is.
