Why We Love Our Aloe Vera + Blue Pea Balancing Toner Even More This Summer

by SCHMEAR Naturals |

After the heatwave recently, the Aloe Vera + Blue Pea Balancing Toner has become an essential part of our lives. With sunburned skin and the constant need to cool down, we like to pop it in the fridge and use it throughout the day. 

Our balancing toner is 100% plant and food-based, and from our previous blog, we explained the importance of toners as it rebalances your skin's pH level and helps prepare your skin for other products. However, our toner is more than just a regular toner. Due to its natural and calming ingredients, it can also be used as a face mist. Face mists aren't just some fancy water, but it's one of the most versatile skincare products and gives your skin an instant boost of hydration while cooling your skin. A bonus is that it works for every skin type. 

A toner's original job is to act as an extra cleansing step by removing any remaining impurities from the skin. We like to use it with our Reusable Bamboo Cotton Rounds to help save the planet and reduce the need to restock on cotton rounds constantly. Not only does our toner help cleanse the skin, but it also preps the skin to absorb other products better. Keep reading to discover the many creative ways you can easily use our toner.

scalp TLC

The skin on your scalp can get dry just as easily as the rest of your body! Toning your scalp helps rebalance your scalp's pH levels and reduces irritation, dryness (dandruff), itchy or even nourish sunburned scalps. Try spritzing some toner directly on the scalp (not the hair) after washing and massage it in for that extra healthy hairline. 

rise and shine!

Getting out of bed seems to be one of the hardest things, especially when our brains are on vacation mode. But, with a few spritzes of a refreshing mist, it will wake you right up - leaving you less guilty of constantly hitting the snooze button!

after makeup

As our toner is in a spritz bottle, it's perfect to use as a hydrating setting spray to allow your makeup to last longer. It's also great if you need to touch up on your makeup if you're planning on going out for the evening. It makes blending and touching up a lot easier and leaves you that fresh, dewy, and effortless look.

right before bed

We like to remove our makeup and start our evening skincare routine the moment we arrive back to the comforts of our home. But, sometimes, that can be several hours before we go to bed, and redoing our skincare routine may feel redundant. Hence, we like to spritz a few times to give our skin an instant boost of hydration and moisture.

aromatherapy

Our toner is formulated with Italian bergamot and ylang-ylang essential oils, creating a calming and relaxing experience. Bergamot promotes sleep by slowly lowering blood pressure, and a study has shown that it also reduces anxiety and fatigue. Thus, creating a peaceful night's sleep. Ylang-ylang helps boost mood, reduce depression, and alleviate stress. A study found that ylang-ylang increases self-esteem and reduces anxiety when applied to the skin or inhaled and has a sedative effect - perfect for falling asleep faster. By spraying a few times right before bed improves the quality of our sleep and reduces sleep-associated anxiety. It's also a great addition to mediation sessions and positive affirmation sessions.
