Cymbopogon is the perfect solution for one of the most common concerns when it comes to skin care products: finding the perfect toner. Anyone with an in-depth skin care regimen knows how important it is to use a toner daily but finding one that does not irritate their skin is often a problem, especially for people with sensitive skin. Cymbopogon, more commonly known as lemongrass, offers a natural, safe alternative to harsh toners.
Why Do You Need Cymbopogon as a Toner?
If you haven’t included a toner in your skin care routine, you may be wondering if one is necessary at all. Toners such as Cymbopogon are among the most essential products you can use in your daily routine because they improve both your skin health and appearance. A toner will both restore the ph levels in your skin after cleansing and reduce the appearance of pores, which often open while you wash your face. They come in many forms, including cream, liquid or even masks and should be applied following your cleanser.
The Benefits of Lemongrass
The chemical makeup of lemongrass oil lends makes it an ideal ingredient in toning products. It serves all the purposes that a toner should, such as balancing the skin’s ph levels and shrinking pores. More than that, however, lemongrass has antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help heal your skin following breakouts or other damage. You can apply lemongrass oil directly to your skin with a carrier oil, or find one of the many skin care products that were developed with it already in the formula.
Why Not Other Fruit Extracts?
You may have heard about other fruit extracts used as toners, such as lemon extract. While these extracts will serve many of the same purposes as lemongrass, they tend to be more acidic and have the potential to cause damage to sensitive skin. Many people also find the aroma of extracts such as lemon to be overwhelming in their skin care. Lemongrass has a gentler, milder scent that, while pleasant, will not be bothersome to people with allergies or who otherwise do not enjoy a strong scent.
If you are looking for the perfect toner for your sensitive skin, look for one with Cymbopogon in the formula. It will do everything that you want a toner to do while also helping your skin heal from any past irritations. This one of the many natural ingredients we use at Genovo Skincare.
