Facial Toners Are Very Much Needed.


 A toner is a water-based liquid with a consistency like vinegar that contains active ingredients to help address specific issues. “Not only does it remove debris like oil and traces of makeup, but it soothes, repairs, and smooths the skin’s surface—diminishing blemishes and minimizing signs of redness and inflammation”. Since the product itself is meant to absorb and control all of the dirt and oil clogged deeply into our pores, toner is only necessary for those with greasy or acne-prone skin, right? Wrong. Today’s toners are high quality and made with many of the same ingredients you might find in your other skin-care products. Some of the best toners for acne-prone skin contain exfoliating ingredients like amino fruit acids or glycolic acid, while toners made for sensitive skin types are made with soothing thermal spring water.

After cleansing your skin, pour two to three drops onto a cotton pad—this works best because it doesn’t absorb too much of the liquid and easily transfers product to your face. Make sure you get enough product on the cotton pad so that it feels damp but not too wet so that you’re wasting the liquid.  Smooth a small amount across your face, neck, and décolletage, adding enough pressure to reach deep into your pores but not too much force so as to pull at the skin.

While it’s true that overuse of toners can cause your pores to overproduce oil—a natural defense mechanism when your glands feel too stripped of moisture—it’s safe to apply both morning and night, especially if you’re oily. Use it directly after you cleanse your face, before any serums and treatment products, as a second defense against that dirt and grease. If your skin is on the drier side, stick to using toner just at night. By doing so, you’ll be removing any pore-clogging impurities that will further saturate your skin during your eight hours of snooze time and instead help your skin in its nightly renewal process.

The bottom line: The next time you’re wondering whether or not you really need to add another step to your skin-care routine, remember not to tune out toner. It eliminates dirt, grease, and grime to help clear your complexion and make the rest of your products work better.

Keeping The Skin Clean And Clear.

Its very important to keep your skin clean and clear. Not for just the purpose of modeling but to prevent spotting, black heads, etc. I have done a lot of models for photo-shoots and a lot of people would rather buy a beautiful pair of shoes than to take care of there skin. There are a lot of professional products to buy to do at home such as masks.  Neutrogena, Roden+Fields, L’Oreal, etc all have good products to clean the skin of black heads and excessive sebum.  You just have to go and buy one that works for you.

I have decide to try the Roden+Fields Mask for my client, now just wait!  I am not selling this product in my salon.  Nor do I sell this product. I am only seeing how good it works.  My client who has mature skin and blemishes is my model for the treatment and I have advised her to use it twice a week.  I instructed my client to use the following and in the proper steps.

  1. Wash the face with Gentle Creme Wash everyday.
  2.  Apply the Daily Cleansing Mask as per instruction from the manufacturer.
  3. Wash off the mask and apply Moisture Replenishing Creme

We will see in a 30 day experiment the results.

Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel Thumbs Up!

Joseph Kellner

On a note from myself I have used this product for myself. I get dry eye’s and flaking under my eyes from time to time. And this product is a god send for me.  If you have a client who has dry skin I would highly recommend this product for them.  It is instant relief.  The product comes in a white gel and only a finger tip of the product is needed. I also use this as a primer before makeup applications.  The product lasts for a good while, it comes in a 50ml container and one has lasted me overall one year.  I love how light this product feels yet feels refreshing and hydrating. I use it before applying foundation and really adds glow to my clients skin. I really like this and would recommend to friends and clients.

An ultra-light, gel-like cream that absorbs instantly to give skin intense hydration. Infused with our Super-Duo Charged Water technology, this formula leaves skin more supple and luminous.  It isn’t oily, meaning that once applied, one’s skin will not be as shiny as a mans shoes after the old school sit and shine.  The best part is, I have noticed my makeup applications has better consistency when applied. It is a smooth application every time, resulting in less lines, and my clients skin is overall brighter.  Worth the money and it lasts a really long time, so give it a try. You have nothing to lose and all to gain.
