Your Exfoliating Acid Toners Are Useless Without These.

If I had to give props to one type of product that has saved my skin this summer, I have to shout out exfoliating acids.  If you have hyperactive skin like me, you're shooting yourself in the foot if you don't have a few acid based products in your arsenal.

In my opinion, the easiest way to incorporate skin beautifying acids into your regimen is acidic toners.  With just a few swipes, you can remove dirt/oils, unclog pores, and help minimize discoloration.

 Glowing skin isn't possible unless exfoliation is part of your routine.   This summer, I relied heavily on acid toners to help keep breakouts at bay. The products I had on deck were decent but I didn't experience their full potential until I paired them with the perfect accessory.
Acidic toners have the ability to do so much good. They resurface and smooth the skin while promoting collagen production.  Exfoliated skin provides the perfect canvas for makeup application. If you're more of a lipgloss and mascara type of girl, acid toners will help your skin to showcase its natural beauty.

I've now come to the realization that I wasn't truly maximizing my acid toners.  It wasn't the toner's fault.  The problem lies in the cotton rounds.  Typical cotton rounds stand in the way of your skin experiencing the most benefits from acidic toners.  They try their best, but all they do is soak up the precious product.  Exfoliating toners can be a bit on the pricey side so we can't afford to allow any of it to go to waste.

The solution to this dilemma is to pair your skin beautifying toner with a product that was designed to create the most optimal results.  Which is why I urge you to swap your basic cotton rounds for their exfoliating counterparts.  Exfoliating cotton rounds are the secret weapon that bring out the best in your exfoliating toners. They have a slightly rougher texture that helps your acids to slough off dead skin cells.  They aren't as cottony & fluffy so you don't have to soak as much product.

Exfoliating cotton rounds are a tiny bit pricier than the typical ones that don't do anything special.  But, in my opinion, they're worth every cent.   I no longer have any use for plain cotton rounds. From now on, I only have love for hydrating cotton squares and these that have the ability to make my exfoliating toners even more powerful.  For those with sensitive skin, I should mention that exfoliating rounds from Swisspers have 2 levels of exfoliating potential.  One side is mildly exfoliating while the other side is much rougher for a deeper cleansing (see pic above).  If the highly textured side is too rough for your face, try using it on your neck, chest, shoulders and back to remove dirt and dead skin.

I'll never use normal cotton rounds again.
