Reasons to Use a Skin Toner
Natural facial toners hydrate your skin, reinstating its normal pH balance, boosting circulation, and giving your face a robust glow. It also enhances your skin tone by constricting pores and decreasing the wrinkles and fine lines.
You will notice a pleasant and surprising difference with any skin type, including “problem” skin. When you include a facial skin toner in your natural skin care regimen every day, your skin will feel refreshingly pure, supple, and invigorated.
Toners significantly improve the overall appearance of your skin by ridding it of dead skin cells, grime, oil, and the residue many facial products leave behind. In addition to deeply cleansing, renewing, and hydrating your skin, toners also enable products such as moisturizers and other skin care treatments to better penetrate the skin.
Misting with a toner after applying makeup helps makeup to set up softly and nicely as well, particularly with some of the mineral make-ups that often have an unattractive and dry appearance. The hydrosols in the toner enhance make-up with a moisturizing, setting affect that produces a hydrating feel minus any unwelcome shininess due to its oil-free formula.
Toners are the latest technological advance in the beauty industry—just ask any professional model. When they are working, they tend to keep a bottle handy to mist their face often throughout the day in order to keep their skin looking its absolute best. Now it's available to you as well!
Implementing a facial toner is one of the most critical, and often neglected, steps in a complete daily natural skin care routine. As an essential part of the process between cleansing and moisturizing, it will result in you successfully reaching the goal of healthy facial skin. If you have any doubt about its effectiveness, try this experiment: Treat only one side of your face and neck with a toner for a week and take note of the difference. The contrast will be particularly evident if you suffer from any problems such as oily skin, congested or large pores, blackheads, acne, or dry skin.
Don't assume your skin is sufficiently cleansed and toned without the use of a natural facial toner. You owe it to yourself to experience and understand the difference.
Wellness Water – We begin with our own bed of imported volcanic sand that aids in the treatment and filtering out of harmful substances such as larger organisms, parasites, and sediments - it maintains the integrity of the filtration layers to come. Disease causing micro-organisms, known as pathogens, have a tough time surviving in the atmosphere around a volcano due to its high-energy field characteristics. The surface tension of the water is lowered significantly, and its form is structurally changed into what is technically called “true micro clusters.” This altered state of water is acknowledged as the preferred and most productive form for almost all water applications. Next comes a combination of two factors working together to complete the process: a layer of far-infrared emitting ceramic beads, surrounded by a double layer consisting of magnetite stone along with opposing magnets. This makes the water an excellent detoxifier for both external and internal applications and reinstates the original magnetic condition of the water for use in the entire household.
Wellness water has some incredible magnetic and energetic properties not limited only to usage in natural facial toners. To better understand how it is produced, here is a breakdown of the six-layer filtering process that is used:
- Taichoseki Mineral Stone: This “natural disinfectant” medium is a proprietary method that is very effective as an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent.
- Bakuhanseki Stone: This stone has many healthful applications involving water. The Bakuhan mineral, found in Japan, is used medically either in a water solution or as a powder that is applied onto the skin or in the mouth. It is also used in many places as a component in drinking and bathing water filtration systems as it has properties which favorably adjust pH levels, purge harmful contaminants, increase the availability of oxygen, and substantially improve the taste of water.
- SPG Sand: Derived from volcanic rock, this substance acts as a vehicle for highly effective filtration of minute particles down to 0.5 microns in size. The surface area of SPG sand is 6.16 sq. meters per gram, which enables it to filter parasites and trace amounts of heavy metals as well. The result is extremely pristine water.
- Granulated Activated Carbon: Eliminates many toxins including chlorine and chlorine-based substances, volatile and organic compounds, and MTBE, a chemical found in gasoline that often leaks into the water supply via underground tanks. Manufactured from carbon found in coconut shells, this excellent filter component also removes undesirable tastes and odors from water.
- Magnet & Magnetite Stone: Used in water filters to create very affective magnetic filtering. High flux density (over 4500 gauss) stone and magnets are used to create lower surface tension thereby increasing the solubility of the water and its absorption properties.
- Far-Infrared Ceramic: Specialized ceramic beads that stimulate the production of ionic agents that combat free radicals, rejuvenating the skin, bolstering the immune system, and fighting conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. They are made using far infrared emitting stone at a temperature of 2200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Rose Distillate (Rosa Damascena (India) Hydrosol) – Used since Victorian times as a skin emollient, rose water is a byproduct of the production of essential oil from the rose plant. It softens, tones, and even has healing and restorative properties, especially on delicate and dehydrated skin.
Orange Blossom (Neroli) Distillate (Citrus Aurantium (India) Hydrosol) - Like Rose Distillate, Neroli Orange Blossom Hydrosol is a gentle balm used for dry, chafed, or sensitive skin and is also excellent at managing oiliness and large pores. It can, with regular treatment, reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins. When combined with Witch Hazel, Neroli hydrosol mildly clears away acne and skin blemishes, especially with dry skin.
Colloidal Silver – For years, anecdotal “evidence” produced outrageous claims for this miracle substance, which in truth was minimally effective, and had no clinical studies to back it up. However, recent evidence shows that topical colloidal silver, properly produced, is quite an amazing and useful substance, especially with regard to facial skin health and restoration. Studies from leading universities like Yale and UCLA substantiated that high quality pharmaceutical grade colloidal silver acts as an excellent anti-microbial. Some hospitals around the world, including in America, use colloidal silver in bandages and patient clothing to expedite the healing of wounds. Use a high-quality proven product is essential, as up to 50% of colloidal silver products have been shown to be sub par and defective.
Whole Leaf, Cold Processed, 18x Organic Aloe Vera – The aloe vera plant's leaves produce and store an amazing water-based substance that has legendary healing and soothing characteristics, especially for the skin, that is great for use on burns, cuts, inflamed skin, and insect bites. Aloe vera contains many helpful enzymes, minerals (including potassium, the “youth mineral”), amino acids, and naturally effective moisturizing agents called mucopolysacharides. Aloe has been used for thousands of years by many different cultures including the Egyptians, Chinese, Greeks, and Romans. It has also proved useful in treating radiation burns in the atomic age. Beware of imitations though - true aloe vera is thin and runny. Many commercial products are diluted and artificially thickened with chemicals.
Crystal Energy – Crystal Energy provides “wetter water” by changing the molecular properties of liquids, in this case water, and enhancing its ability to absorb. This process makes water more like the body’s own fluids.
MSM – Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a dietary derivative of DMSO, a potent scavenger of free radicals. MSM is a naturally occurring source of highly bioavailable sulfur found in all living creatures but is often bypassed on the list of nutrients necessary for life. Most of us do not get enough MSM in our modern diets and the skin, the body’s largest organ, can particularly suffer as a result. Collagen is an important component of the skin as well as bone and cell tissues. Lack of MSM can cause collagen to operate inefficiently, resulting in dry, wrinkly, and damaged skin and impede the healing and renewal of wounded tissues.
GH3 – A proven anti-aging compound, GH3 has stood the test of much scientific scrutiny. GH3, used both internally and externally, has shown itself to be highly effective at helping the body to heal and regenerate the skin. Despite these benefits, many companies choose not to put GH3 into their products due to its high cost. However, we want to help you take 10 years off your appearance and at the same time nourish and protect your face from the deteriorating affects of aging. Therefore, our products feature the safest and most cutting-edge technology available today in the area of skin care.
Roman Chamomile Distillate (Oregon) organic – German herbalists called this amazing herb alles zutraut, which literally translates to “capable of anything.” It is often used in the treatment of dermatitis and as a great alternative to steroidal medications such as hydrocortisone or corticosteroid cream. It also soothes and lessens skin inflammation and irritation.
Black Willow Bark - Natural Black Willow Bark Extract is a powerful antimicrobial that is a great weapon against acne, especially staphylococcus aureus and propionibacterium acnes, two of the most common causes of acne. It is often added to makeup products to improve their skin cell renewal properties. It provides all the benefits of such additives as B-hydroxy acid and Salicylic acid without the irritating side effects.
Rosemary Distillate (Rosmarinus Officinalis (France) Hydrosol Organic) - Rosemary is a popular alternative treatment for many ailments. It is commonly recommended for elderly individuals with dry, mature skin and those with couperose skin, often associated with rosacea. It also acts to ease muscle stiffness and boost circulation. Traditional uses other than skin care include clearing the mind and stimulating energy in the body, mind and spirit.
Witch Hazel Distillate ((Alcohol-Free) Hamamelis virginiana) – Witch Hazel is another remedy with a long history in folk medicine. For skin care usage, it is useful as an astringent, for itchy skin, for insect stings, for burns, and as a pore tightener. It is also reputed to help hemorrhoids, fevers, and have anesthetic properties. Witch Hazel was very popular with the American Indians.
Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols & tocotrienols) – Vitamin E, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants and free radical fighters, helps to prevent skin cancer and skin aging by ridding the body of free radicals that can cause the skin to deteriorate, dry out, wrinkle, and lose flexibility and suppleness. It works wonders for the skin by keeping it healthy, reducing scarring, and promoting the faster healing of wounds. Like MSM, Vitamin E is very kind to collagen, one of the skin's major reparative agents. One of the primary reasons Vitamin E is so often used in skin care products is because of its reknowned ability to combat free radicals and disarm them before they can damage the skin. Vitamin E is also very effective as an emollient used to soothe and soften rough, irritated skin.
