Face Toner & Face Mists are the most underestimated yet essential part of the skincare routine. People mostly confuse toners and mists with moisturisers. It's a common belief that if one uses moisturiser, toner needs don't arise.


Let's first talk about what toner is and the purpose of using it. In the past, toner was associated with being too astringent, making the skin very dry and stingy at every application; the main content in toner was alcohol. Since the popularity of K-Beauty, the toner has changed in definition; Koreans do not believe in drying out skin, the new generation of face toners has changed the definition. They are now more hydrating and are alcohol-free. The idea is to thoroughly cleanse and clarify skin via using double cleanse, then apply leave-in toner to hydrate, minimise skin pores and balance PH levels in your skin to give more radiance to the skin.

 A face toner comes in liquid form for application to the face. Toners are applied after using a cleanser but before moisturiser or makeup.

A toner is a vital part of any skincare routine, especially for acne-prone skin types. All good facial toners benefits are listed below;

- Helps in clearing out any bacteria and removing dirt or oil that may be still sitting even after washing your face

- Salicylic acid in facial toners helps with acne, blackheads, and unclog pores by removing the excess oil from the skin.

- A face toner will also aid in hydrating your face for healthy skin and rejuvenation.

- Toner helps reduce the size and appearance of pores, which helps get rid of acne, and skin appears much smoother.

Toner for dry skin

For dry skin, avoid alcohol-based products; an oil-free moisturiser is ideal instead. Alcohol will further dehydrate already parched skin. While toners do not provide moisture to the skin, they can help with dry skin needs. Find products with ingredients like aloe vera gel, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin that are proven to be gentle on the skin. 

Toner for oily skin

Use the cotton pad to wipe away any leftover dirt or makeup for oily skins. To do this, soak a cotton pad in toner and apply it thoroughly to cleanse off any residue left before moisturising your skin.

Lastly, it's essential to use the toner for women by women & toner for men by men; the market and products have evolved, and products are formulated keeping in mind the skin type, so to get the desired result, it's imperative to use the toner according to one sex. Men's skin tends to be a bit tougher using toner for men that'll round up your routine and help in getting desired results.


Right after toner, it's recommended to spray a mist to provide the first line of moisturiser. A mist is a water-based skincare product formulated to provide hydration to the face with ingredients like humectant & emollient. Mist can be applied at any dry time, when feeling dry, or just in need to make your skin look fresh.

You can find mist formulated as calming mists, brightening mists, antioxidant mists, and super hydrating mists.

Body mists are also available in the market, which provides fragrance and hydration. However, the scent does not tend to last very long.
