Using facial mist, or a facial toner, is a necessary step in any beauty regime. Mists and toners are applied after cleansing and before moisturising your face. A toner or a mist prepares your skin to properly absorb the ingredients of your moisturiser. It also helps to thoroughly clean and refresh your skin and minimise the appearance of large pores.
Here are some of my favourite mists and toners, I have been using them for several years and they are amazing!
Our Healing Roots Facial Toner
My wonderful cousin Cote makes amazing facial toners (and other products) that are suitable for all skin types. Read more about her at https://ourhealingroots.com/about-cote-garceau/. My favourite one is a mix of Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera and natural essential oils, which is the perfect combination for a calming and balancing toner.
Witch Hazel naturally heals and is great for oily and acne prone skin. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant which protects your skin.
Aloe Vera is a powerful antiseptic and full of healing properties. Aloe can also help the growth of new skin cells and to soothe the skin.
Upon request, different aromas can be used to make this mist.
I recommend using this toner with an organic cotton pad, so that you can clean out all impurities and remove the dead skin cells.
KORA Organics Energising Citrus Mist and Calming Lavender Mist
I have been using KORA Organics for many years now and I just love their mists (and any other of their products).
The Energising Citrus Mist is a wonderful uplifting and refreshing mist for the day. It contains Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin, Aloe Vera, Sandalwood and Noni extract. This is the perfect mist to keep skin fresh and glowing. The Noni extract provides antioxidant protection and hydration.
The Calming Lavender Mist leaves your complexion refreshed and relaxed, thanks the properties of Lavender essential oil.
I like to use the Our Healing Facial Toner in the morning to have the best foundation for my moisturiser and protection for the day (apply it with an organic cotton pad).
You can always find the KORA Organics Energising Mist in my bag, which I use during the day to refresh my skin and set my makeup.
For the night, I like to use the KORA Organics Lavender Mist as it helps to calm the mind and body (apply it with an organic cotton pad). I like to spray a little bit on my pillow as well.
They are all suitable for day and night if you want to use only one of them.
