Know Your Skin Type
A normal type complexion is considered to have a proper moisture balance. When the skin is normal, oil production in the sebaceous glands occurs at just the right rate to keep skin moisturized without it becoming oily. As a result, people with normal type skin typically do not experience signs of oiliness like a greasy shine and frequent breakouts. Because their glands are able to meet their skin's moisture needs well, they also do not usually develop signs of dryness like flakiness and roughness.
In addition, normal skin is not usually prone to symptoms of irritation like stinging, redness and itchiness. If you're experiencing signs of oiliness, dryness or sensitivity, a different type of dermatologist-grade toner
is likely a better choice for your complexion.
Keeping Skin Properly Moisture Balanced
For normal skin, toners help to maintain an optimal moisture balance. Even though your glands naturally have a tendency to make the ideal amount of oil, it's possible for oil production to speed up or slow down due to changes in your skin's acidity. Everything from the foods you eat to environmental impurities can shift your skin's pH levels out of ideal range and disrupt healthy oil production.
Toners correct pH levels, helping to keep the skin in balance. As an added benefit, toners also prepare the complexion for other skin care products, allowing you to get more out of your moisturizer and any treatments that you use. For best results, apply your toner after your cleanser and before all of the other formulas in your regimen.
