A Guide to Cleansing Milks and Facial Toners

What you need to know about Cleansers and Toners

About Cleansing Milks

Cleansing milks are a fantastic alternative to foaming cleansers. Cleansing milks moisturize, nourish and balance the skin without harshness of soaps and medicated face washes. They are a fantastic treatment for dry, irritated skin in search of a moisture-plentiful way to clean the face. Or they are great for combination skin that suffers the occasional breakout because of the milks´ balancing effect it has on the skin. Milks are not like other facial cleansers…you apply milks to your face, then remove excess with a cotton wool pad. This way, you cleanse your skin and maintain all the moisturizing and balancing benefits of the cleanser.

By using a milk cleanser it gives your skin a brighter appearance so you look radiant. When you use soap or harsh cleansers your skin will become dry and dull.

About Toners

Cleansers are only half the battle. Using a toner after cleansing is essential for your skin to become clean, refreshed, moisturized and balanced. They also serve to pick up any remaining traces of dirt missed by the cleanser. The toner also gets your skin ready for the moisturizers and make-up that may soon follow.

In the past beauty experts said it closed your pours however over time we have discovered this is incorrect. It appeared to only because it cleans and revitalises your skin.

Cleanser and Toner Suggestions For Your Skin Type

If you have Combination or Oily Skin, I love Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser with the Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner. This combo will effectively remove make-up and daily pollution while balancing and repairing the skin.

If you have Dry Skin, Elemis Rose Petal Cleanser with the Elemis Re-hydrating Ginseng Toner. This combination gently cleanses the skin while replenishing its moisture. It is perfect for restoring the youthfulness to dehydrated and/or mature skin.

If you have Sensitive Skin, Elemis Soothing Chamomile Cleanser with the Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner. The gentle facial cleanser removes impurities and make-up, whilst harmonizing and repairing the skin. It is perfect for a sensitive complexion.
