When and how to use a toner

A toner should go on after cleansing and exfoliating – day or night or both. Toners absorb better when the skin is still damp. Apply toner on a cotton pad and sweep it across your face.

Are there any alternatives to using a toner?

There are some products that do similar jobs as toners like a micellar water. Micellar water can be used as a second step to remove any makeup, dirt or grime. Facial mists help refresh the skin and shrink the pores. If you are using any of these two items, you can omit using a traditional toner.
