7 Awesome Toner Hacks Every Woman Should Know



Toner has always been somewhat of a mystery to me—when to use it, how to use it… The list goes on and on. It wasn't until I heard about Pixi's cult-favourite Glow Tonic that I even considered adding a toner to my already extensive beauty routine. Amanda, our associate features editor, swears by it: "All my favourite estheticians and derms swear by the wonders of glycolic acid—its abilities to slough off dead skin and increase cell turnover for brighter, smoother and overall more youthful skin. This glycolic toner by Pixi is great for so many reasons. First, it has a gentle 5% concentration of glycolic, so it's guaranteed not to irritate. It's also formulated with aloe vera, ginseng and botanical extracts, which are super nourishing. A 250-ml bottle is only £18, which is incredible. Plus, it has a delightful, subtly floral smell." She added, "I use it at night after cleansing, before serum and moisturiser."

So that pretty much put me on board with the whole toner thing. But I was still curious if there were more ways to use it (and even more sneaky benefits). I turned to Pixi global brand ambassador Amanda Bell for her best toner hacks. Below, she gave me all the skin-benefiting deets.
