O Toner is a chemical-free natural acne treatment, naturally purifies pores, helps reduce large clogged pores, clarifying acne, blackheads, blemishes, rosacea, and oily skin. O Toner is a deep pore cleansing facial toner with a high herbal content so is not a clear toner like a pure hydrosol. A very potent formula that helps hydrate, nourish, calm, heal, and balance acne skins. All cleansers must be rinsed off the skin! Otherwise, you have pore debris and cleanser residue left on the skin that will be shoved down into the pores causing even more inflammation.
For the secret to smaller pores and fewer blackheads, please read Why Use a Facial Toner to completely understand why this neglected step is so very important. Especially for oily skins! And there is a proper way of toning that will benefit your skin. Cotton pads used with toner help create smaller pores. The culprit of the plugged pore is "scale" or dead skin cells that slough off and get trapped with sebum. Once this pore plug dries out, it can become impacted, leading to acne and inflammation. This is why skin must be kept hydrated. Mist the toner a few times a day to keep tissues high in 'water content'.
Why is Hydration so Important?
You cannot have proper cell function unless your skin is well hydrated and dehydrated skin is the #1 Skin Condition! This dehydration leads to impacted pore debris resulting in blackheads, a dull lifeless complexion, premature aging, and rampant free radical damage. When this happens, skin cannot perform it's natural exfoliation process and 30 day cell turnover so becomes sluggish and even inflamed. The anti-oxidant rich botanical blend encourages cellular proliferation by gently removing the excessive buildup of dead skin cells. This buildup is called keratinization and left untreated can lead to uneven texture, roughness, and congestion in the skin.

After each cleansing, dampen several cotton pads with toner and start with a small area of skin repeatedly wiping and using fresh pads until the last one comes away perfectly clean, then move to the next small area and repeat the deep pore cleansing process. Follow with serum. Mist once or twice a few times during the day to add crucial hydration.
