MYTH: Toners are the second step in cleansing

Toners are not the second step in cleansing. In fact, toners have nothing to do with cleaning your skin. They are used to superficially hydrate the outer skin (toners are primarily water), reacidify the epidermis (your skin is naturally acidic and it’s important to keep it in balance), and prepare the skin for moisturizer (now that the skin is rebalanced and back to acid on the pH scale, it’s the perfect time to hydrate). Just remember: Toners are not cleansers.
