PEOPLE OFTEN BELIEVE THAT A GOOD SKIN CARE REGIME CONSISTS OF CLEANSING, TONING AND MOISTURIZING. IT SHOULD ACTUALLY BE CLEANSING, MOISTURIZING AND SUN PROTECTION.
The strong toners are astringents with alcohol in them. Mild ones which are said to be alcohol free may still have upto 10% alcohol in them. Cleansing itself alters the skin pH , toning will make it more alkaline leading to dry & sensitive skin. Hence, a toner should be used to degrease very oily skin. It should not be used in normal to dry skin.
