When skin care regimens first became popular, there was much to learn about proper skincare. Most beauty products varied from superficial to far too potent. With that poor philosophy came a misconception about toners; most were assumed to be fit only for oily skin types. Not to be mistaken for astringents, toners are excellent for obtaining a balanced pH, adequate hydration and a clear complex. Toners are not meant to strip the skin of its natural oils nor is it meant to sit on the surface of the skin. Although toners can be interrupted in many ways, toners in western skincare should be a light combination of essential oils that help penetrate the skin to lock in the healing benefits.
Here are a few of the SkinStore staffs favorite mists:
Kerstin Florian Rehydrating Neroli Water ($35 USD) A unique blend of all natural floral water from the Bitter Orange Blossom calms, moisturizes and freshens the skin. Excellent for the face and can even be used as a fragrance spray for body.

Jane Iredale Antioxidant Hydration Spray ($27 USD) The great smelling Green Tea extract mist not only balances skin, controls oil production and nourishes the skin but can even be used in the hair to control static or set any foundation.
Neova Balancing Toner ($32 USD) New to the market, this lightweight toner absorbs excess oils and gentle exfoliates the skin without irritation. We recommend this for oilier or combination skin types who are looking to reduce pore size and improve skin texture.

A retinol based product can be found in almost every beauty line available and it easy to see why. Retinol, or vitamin A, has the ability to increase collagen production. It can be used to treat a range of skin conditions from acne to visible signs of aging.
Retinol gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin from the surface and helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring and dark spots. Retinol is a great addition to any skincare routine for many skin types but be aware you should allow 4-6 weeks for results to show noticeable and lasting results.
As many consumers are aware, the largest downside of retinol products is increased photo sensitivity. Because the retinol acts as an exfoliant, it exposes skin to environmental elements. It is proven that retinol does increases risk of sunburn but not an increase in development of skin cancer. It is high recommended that consumers stop tanning in UVB tanning beds while using retinol products. Users who are cautious of sun exposure or know they may be exposed can mix their retinol products with an SPF product or restrict their usage primarily at night.
Typical side effects include redness and photosensitivity. Overuse of Retinoid can cause peeling, shedding or excess dryness so it suggested that users limit their use to 3 times a week until the symptoms subside. Stop using retinol based products if skin becomes irritated, itches or burns. Active ingredients like retinol or other acids can cause activity like a light tingling sensation but should never burn. This said vitamin A or retinol products are not recommended for pregnant women or clients with skin conditions like Eczema and/or Rosacea.
