Difference Between Toner & Serum
Posted on 29 April 2020
Toner helps reduce the appearance of large pores, and extract any additional gunk from them such as whiteheads/ blackheads and dead skin that gather on the topmost layer of your skin. Washing with just a face wash or makeup remover is not always effective. Using a toner will help clean away excess dirt, oil and grime your cleanser missed so your serums and moisturizers can do a better job. It also works as a ‘secondary cleanser’ while helping to balance your skin’s pH levels. A toner tends to have a more watery consistency and dry rather quickly after applying.
Body Merry’s Super C-22 Toner is a customer favorite and top-seller on Amazon. Inspired by the same Florida summer day as its sister product, our toner brings the same pleasant hints of citrus in a light and thin formula. This refreshing and alcohol-free formula uses witch hazel to tighten pores and tone your skin while balancing its natural pH levels. The power of 22% Vitamin C gives your skin a much needed antioxidant boost while organic aloe and MSM (among others) work tirelessly to calm and soothe your skin.
A serum is meant to give your routine an extra kick, and is full with powerful ingredients to treat specific skin problems like fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and dullness. Serums are slightly thicker than toner because they contain highly concentrated and strong active ingredients. As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to damage and its ability to create collagen diminishes, producing wrinkles and saggy skin.
Body Merry offers three great daily serum options to pamper your skin between cleansing/ toning and moisturizing to help fight those pesky signs of aging. These serums work best when paired with the appropriate skin types. Learn more from our bundles page here.
