Favorite Facial Toners

Thank you for stopping by!.

I hope you are doing wonderful if you ever want to talk, shoot me an email, okay?.

Thank you for your continued support, I am honestly grateful.

Toners are new(er) to me. Over the past 2-3 months, I have found 3 that I really….really love and have seen improvements in the overall health of my skin.

This toner improved the texture of my skin.

Willow Bark Extract-  Works as an astringent, anti-inflammatory, and soothing properties. It contains salicylic acid, a BHA that is a natural exfoliant used in several acne treatments because it can help skin shed dead cells while clearing pores.

Licorice Root Extract-

Plant extract that has skin-soothing properties.

It will also improve the look of an uneven tone.

One of its components, known as glabridin, is a potent antioxidant and soothing ingredient, which is why licorice often shows up in products meant for sensitive, reddened skin.

Chamomile Extract-  

Contains flavonoid and essential oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous for my sensitive skin.

Anti-inflammatory properties-due to the inhibition of histamine release, anti-free radical action, and inhibition of the superoxide radical synthesis is key.

Silk Amino Acids-

Especially useful as a skin moisturizer as it helps prevent moisture from escaping. Aside from its moisture protecting properties, silk protein also adds some protection from ultraviolet rays and helps prevent wrinkles.

Goji Berry Extract-

When used topically, goji berry can stimulate collagen and elastin production.  It is high in minerals and amino acids as well as carotenoids which help protect the skin from sun damage.   Goji berries are also very high in vitamin C which helps to brighten the skin while reducing the signs of aging.

Green Tea Extract- 

A powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. May protect against free radicals, prevent sun damage and preserve the natural moisture barrier of the skin.

Ginger Root Extract-

Because it contains very potent anti-inflammatory substances called gingerols, it may decrease inflammation that can contribute to inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

In addition, ginger is a root herb that stimulates peripheral blood flow and acts as a diaphoretic. Thus it aids the skin in eliminating toxins. This is why ginger can be an effective cleansing and healing agent for skin conditions, by promoting cleansing of the system through perspiration.

Leucidal Liquid-

Derived from radishes fermented with Leuconostoc kimchii, a lactic acid bacteria that has traditionally been used to make kimchi, this product consists of an isolated peptide that is secreted from the bacteria during the fermentation process that has been shown to have antimicrobial benefits.

4oz.~24.00 on Leaf Seed Berry

This toner from Wellspring Naturals is just as much of a gem as the last one, at a steeper price point.

0.5oz. ~7.99

2oz. ~ 19.99

Frankincense is a powerful astringent, it helps protect skin cells.

It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and it even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging.

Rose oil and its hydrolate counterpart, rosewater, with its complex chemical profile of at least 275 compounds. Rose hydrosol helps restore moisture balance, calms redness and feelings of irritation, and if used over time, reduces the effects of time like facial lines and wrinkles. Use often and liberally!.

My skin looks radiant after using.

Strawberry Fruit Water-

Strawberry has great cleansing properties. They contain vitamin C, salicylic acid, antioxidants, and exfoliants, salicylic acid removes dead cells.

Ellagic acid is an antioxidant combats skin damage, when applied topically it protects the skin against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which are primarily responsible for skin aging.

Removes impurities and soften the skin as well as soothe allergies and other irritants and provide protection against pollution.

And impressively,  has skin lightening properties removing age spots and freckles.

Leucidal Liquid (AKA) Radish Root Extract-

This natural antimicrobial increases the shelf life of your beauty and skincare products without adding any harmful synthetic ingredients.

The ingredient is also a moisturizer and conditioner by itself.

Rose Otto Oil-

The process in which rose otto essential oil is obtained is a two-part process and is very costly compared to obtaining the absolute.

  • Steam Distilled Rose Essential Oil is known as Rose Otto.
  • Solvent Extracted Rose Oil is known as Rose Absolute.

I do not like solvent extraction because there is a solvent residue left behind, something I do not want to put on my skin.

Rose Otto, reigns supreme for maturing skin. It can absorb deep into the tissues and moisturize the skin wonderfully. You will find that dryness can be easily reduced and skin will have a smooth complexion.

Since I last had my bottle in which I finished; Wild Carrot Herbals added

  • Silver Citrate and Citric Acid

Silver Citrate is a preservative that’s marketed as a “natural” alternative. Silver citrate is a salt of silver and citric acid, where silver exists in its ionic form.

Silver citrate in the presence of citric acid (which, when sold as this preservative it’s a blend of citric acid and silver citrate) is soluble in water.

5oz.~ 25.99 Wild Carrot Herbals

Have yourself a good day, Sincerely Always

Amber.
