Do You Know Why TONERS In Skincare Regime? 为什么爽肤水是护肤程序其中的重要步骤?

In the past like in the 70’s toners usually contained alcohol which were to degrease oily skin and made the skin really dry and seemingly “clean”! These alcohol toners were definitely not for everyone. They might be effective for oily acne skin, but for dry skin it was detrimental. However toners have meanwhile evolved with specific functional effects. Most toners in the market now do not contain alcohol hence not so drying. However, many people are still unaware of what toner really is and still have misconceptions as to its true functions.
过去70年代的爽肤水通常含有酒精成分,会使油性肌肤脱脂,导致肌肤干燥,看似“干净”! 而这些含有酒精的并不是适合所有人。 它们可能对油性痤疮肌肤有效,但不利于干性肌肤。 现今的爽肤水具有特定的功能效果, 市场上大部分爽肤水都不含酒精,因此肌肤不会那么干燥。 然而,许多人仍然不知道什么是爽肤水,并且误解它真正的功效。


What then are the benefits of using toners??
使用爽肤水有什么好处呢?

The usual basic skin care regime is: Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize.  The cleansing is to clean off all the dirt, make up, impurities, dead cells and purify skin. When skin is thoroughly cleaned, then it is all ready to receive the active ingredients that are present in serum & moisturizer to deliver the desired effects. Then why do you need a toner in between??
正确的护肤程序:洁净,调理和保湿。 洁净是清除所有污垢,化妆,杂质,死细胞并净化肌肤。 当肌肤被彻底洁净后,它就可以有效地吸收精华和保湿霜中的活性成分,以达到理想的效果。 那为什么在这之间需要使用爽肤水呢?

    洁净后,通常肌肤的酸碱值会发生变化,这可能会扰乱保护肌肤免受微生物侵害的酸液膜。 精心特制的爽肤水可恢复健康酸碱值从4.5至5.5。
  • Toners that are dedicated with specific functions may act as liquid moisturizers to prepare the skin for better absorption of serums or other potent skin care.
