What are the benefits and importance of using toner between cleansing and moisturizing?
- Remove any residue and dirt left behind after washing your face
- Balance the skin’s pH level
- Tighten the skin’s pores
- Brighten (not whiten) the complexion
- To sooth and soften your skin
- Prepare your skin to ‘accept’ moisture (it creates a bridge between cleansing and moisturizing)
Is there alcohol in your toner?
No. Toners must be alcohol-free to avoid irritating and drying out the skin.
Why is it important to use oil-free moisturizers?
Oil-free lotions work well on oily and/or acne-prone skin because they moisturize it but are less likely to clog pores and trigger breakouts than an oil-based lotion.
What causes acne?
Acne is caused when dead skin cells and sebum, an oily substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands, clog pores. When bacteria are trapped in pores they can become inflamed, causing pimples.
How many days does it take for the skin to regenerate to see results?
It takes 28 days for the human body to regenerate the skin and for you to start seeing the great results and benefits of using Soul Story Skincare.
