Can Hyaluronic Acid Be Used as a Toner?
Cleansing your skin and figuring out the routine that works best for you can be stressful, but luckily, here at Elizabeth Mott, we’ve made it easy to figure out what products you should be using to properly cleanse your skin, prevent acne, and bring out the best natural beauty you possibly can.
Our new Hydrating Hyaluronic Toner is a great way to unclog pores, increase skin hydration, and remove dirt and impurities from the skin in a way that’s easy and effective. It’s also a great product to use to protect the skin in the long run, so that you can continuously love your skin, no matter what your daily life seems to bring you. This post is here to answer all of your questions, so that you can help your skin bounce back, quicker, and more beautiful than ever before.
If you’re trying to add our Hydrating Hyaluronic Toner to your daily skincare routine, we have good news for you! You absolutely can use hyaluronic acid on your face everyday as part of your cleansing routine, but make sure that you’re applying it to damp skin, and then following up with a lightweight moisturizer to make sure that you protect your face from any potential side effects. We recommend moisturizing with Island Aloe Gel from our sister company, Hanalei.
Should I use retinol or hyaluronic acid first?
If you also incorporate retinol into your skincare routine, don’t worry! You can continue to use retinol with your new Hydrating Hyaluronic Toner. They actually work great together due to the hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid. Retinol should always come first, due to this hydrating power. You always want to add hydration after retinol, which is what makes this such a power-duo!
What are the side effects of hyaluronic acid?
As with any new skincare product, there are risks of side effects. Hyualuronic acid does contain an alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA, which has the potential to cause sunburns, or increase your skin’s sun sensitivity. In order to truly bring out that natural beauty, make sure that you’re pairing your Hydrating Hyaluronic Toner with an effective SPF to help prevent sunburns.
In what order should I use my skin care products?
If you’re not using retinol, it’s important to make sure that you’re using your Hydrating Hyaluronic Toner after cleanser. This ensures that any effects from the hyaluronic acid have time to work, and aren’t washed away with your cleanser. We recommend our new Vitamin C Face Scrub for your cleanser, so that you can get maximum skincare benefits.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and increase the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
