Toner and cleansing milk have always been considered the perfect couple to give your skin softness, tone and radiance thanks to the combined action of their principles. They will take care of you right from the start.
But is there a timeline to make the best use of them? How do I use the toner? Do I need to rinse it out? What about the cleansing milk? Does it replace make-up remover?
We will answer all these questions, but first, it is important that you recognise your skin type: oily, normal or dry!
After that, we can get on with our routine. So, Let’s go!
When should I use them? Morning and evening would be perfect.
In the morning, it is necessary to remove the metabolic waste produced by the skin that has regenerated during the night.
While before going to sleep, cleansing is necessary to remove residues of sebum, smog, and any traces of make-up left after applying make-up remover.
Cleansing your face is an essential step if you want to have toned, healthy-looking skin with tightly closed pores.
Apply cleansing milk over your skin to finish cleaning and to prepare it for your toner (cleansing with or without water? It depends: sensitive and easily reddened skin usually cannot tolerate tap water, which is much more tolerated by normal or oily skin. If you are one of the former, try using thermal water).
And as a final step, take a cotton ball or pad, pour in a few drops of your toner and dab gently on the most sensitive areas; vigorously on the cheeks and forehead. Toner is a must have because it balances the skin’s pH, which has been altered by cleansers and can damage the skin over time, leaving it dull and dry or oily and shiny. It also helps to close the pores.
Your skin will be ready to receive all the other care it needs: moisturise it with a cream and remember to do a nice nourishing mask at least once every fortnight!
Be simply beautiful, with us ❤️
