When Do You Use Hyaluronic Acid and Toner?

2 Mins read

Choosing the right skincare products can be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the game.

With all of the options out there, it’s hard to know which ones are worth your hard-earned money.

So I’m here today to answer a question that I get asked a lot: when should you use hyaluronic acid and toner? Let’s dig in!

When do you use hyaluronic acid and toner?

You can use hyaluronic acid and toner at any time of day, but it’s best to use them after cleansing and before applying other skincare products.

Toner works best if you apply it immediately after washing your face because it can help to draw in moisture from your skin, which is especially important during winter months when the air can be dry indoors.

Knowing which one to use depends on your skin type

The right hyaluronic acid toner for you depends on your skin type.

If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to use a toner that is alcohol-free.

Alcohol dries out the outer layer of skin (the epidermis), which can make it feel tight and uncomfortable.

If you have dry skin, try using a hyaluronic acid serum or moisturizer with added beneficial ingredients such as green tea extract or aloe vera leaf juice to soothe your skin and hydrate it from the inside out.

If you have oily combination skin, look for an exfoliating treatment made with glycolic acid or lactic acid to slough off dead cells from the surface of your face without stripping away too much moisture from underneath the top layers of skin—and choose one with antioxidants to prevent damage caused by UV rays!

Do you need to use both hyaluronic acid and toner?

Toner is a pre-moisturizer, so you can use it before or after applying hyaluronic acid. If you prefer to apply your toner first and then use your hyaluronic acid, that’s fine too!

If you don’t have time to do both because your face feels dry, consider using just one of these products—either the hyaluronic acid or the toner—instead of combining them.

You might find that using only one at a time is more effective than using both together in terms of reducing flakiness and improving hydration levels in your skin.

What do hyaluronic acid and toner do?

Toner is a liquid that’s used to remove excess dirt and oil from the skin. It can be used to help cleanse the skin, help tighten the skin, or balance the pH of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body.

It helps keep moisture in your joints and tissues by holding on to water molecules.

Hyaluronic acid also helps give structure to collagen (a protein) in your body.

What are the benefits of using both?

  • Both toner and hyaluronic acid are great for dry skin
  • They can be used together to give your skin a boost
  • If you want to focus on just one area, you can use either product separately

What are the steps in a skincare routine?

It’s important to know what the steps in your skincare routine are.

If you wash your face, but then skip toning and moisturizing, your skin is going to feel dry and parched.

If you’re conscientious about washing, then it’s important that you follow up with a hyaluronic acid serum and toner on top of that.

But even if you’re diligent about washing, toning and moisturizing regularly—and wearing sunscreen every day—you still might notice some fine lines around the eyes or mouth. That’s when it’s time for an eye cream or a facial oil!

The key is to figure out what works best for your skin and then stick with that routine.
