What does a toner really mean to your skin?...
Here we explain why beauty’s most underrated product should be at the top of your list.
When beauty shopping, we usually look first for a great cleanser - the one that will remove all layers of dirt from our skin without stripping it away and leave it feeling purified and spotless. Then we search for the best moisturiser: rich, velvety and fragrant without being overpowering, and most importantly, one that delivers what we are investing in it for – a gorgeous, smooth glowing skin.
So, what’s with the toners?... What does a toner actually do for your skin?
Toning your skin is the second most important step in your beauty routine – right after cleansing and before moisturising.
A good toner will remove excess oil and clear dead skin cells while it neutralizes the skin’s pH and refines large pores, priming your skin to allow serums and moisturisers to sink deeper into it. In addition to helping rebalance your skin, a toner can also be the best product for those with acne prone skin.
Toners have a myriad of powers for your skin, from hydrating and moisturising to soothing and controlling oil excess, allowing you to obtain that radiant complexion we all dream of.
At Dr Jackson’s we have developed two very special formulations – one for the face and one for the body, that tick all the boxes and much more:
05 Face and Eye Essence
A hydrating and refreshing toning gel for the face and around the eyes
The 05 Face and Eye Essence will reverse a multitude of sins and restore skin to its optimum condition, especially when you are jet-lagged, hungover or skin-tired from a day under the sun. This refreshing and firming gel toner is like a tall, cool drink - for you and your skin. The natural ingredients in this toner, including refreshing aloe, are rich in vitamin C and will help in nourishing, tightening and brightening to banish eye bags, rescue thirsty skin cells and make your complexion glow.
Aloe hydrates, soothes and helps reduce inflammation, baobab is rich in vitamin C, fatty acids and antioxidants, which moisturises and combats pollutants coming for your skin every day, while kigelia tightens and evens skin tone, promoting a healthy, youthful texture. Fragrant Damask rose calms and promotes a sense of wellbeing.
How to use:
In between cleansing and moisturising, refresh tired skin with the 05 Face and Eye Essence, applying a small amount and using light, dabbing motions on the face and around the eye area. Allow to fully absorb for two minutes, before applying your favourite Dr Jackson’s moisturiser:  01 Day Cream, 01 Day Cream SPF 30, 03 Everyday Oil by day or 02 Night Cream in your evening beauty routine.
Star ingredients: Baobab, kigelia, damask rose, aloe leaf, chamomile

Baobab and kigelia offer intense hydration and nourishment, promoting the skin’s elasticity for a smooth, supple texture, sea buckthorn has restorative, soothing properties – it is a therapeutic treat for overworked muscles, as well as an effective rejuvenator for tired or lined skin. Orange flower and patchouli deliver a fragrant, yet unobtrusive, soft, uplifting aroma that will complement your scent of choice.
