Sometimes, yep, it is an effort to grab your toner; that step two in your ‘cleansing’ routine that you may, or may not do; I say do, do, do!
Try and change your perception from the ol’ drying, stingy-potions that give you a horrible burning sensation. The traditional toners have now moved on; as Caroline Hirons notes…
‘Think of them as the first step in the moisturising process, not the final step if the cleansing process’.
Since reading this revelation and seeing the change in my skin, I have fallen in love and long forgotten my skin stripping, teenage years tonics.
I cleanse first, then follow with an exfoliating toner; I’m currently using Pixi’s Glow Tonic, but I here Clarins do an equally awesome one too. Then I use my favorite; Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner. This, you spray all over your face, super quick and easy! This is my hydrating toner ‘step’ or I use L’Occitane Angelica Facial Toner, second choice to Dermalogica I’m afraid!
