Recently I wrote a post about skin pH which explained what affects our skin’s pH, how our skin’s pH can be compromised, and how to fix your skin if its pH has been compromised. After publishing my post Traci posted the following question:
Can you explain how a toner/tonic can help PH? Do you think one is necessary? Thanks!
I answered Traci by saying that I didn’t believe that you needed a toner after cleansing – basically that the idea that one had to use a toner after cleansing was out dated.
Shortly thereafter one of my all time favorite beauty blogs – The Beauty Brains – asked their readers who were beauty bloggers to submit questions to be featured on their blog and in the process get exposure for their blog. Prompted by my post about skin and pH levels and Traci’s question to me I decided to ask the following question:
I was wondering what The Beauty Brains thought about the idea that you need to use toner after cleansing in order to restore the skin to its proper pH. I’ve come around to thinking that this is an outdated beauty idea, but I would love to hear your take on it.
Very happily The Beauty Brains decided to answer my question and in the process feature this blog! Thanks The Beauty Brains! You can see The Beauty Brains’ answer to my question here.
(And thank you to Traci too for her question as well)
