Toners are so 80’s.
The old cleanse/tone/moisturize routine should be deleted.
Apart from the fact that most toners contain high doses of alcohol, which can disrupt our skin barrier, they provide zero SKIN BENEFIT.
Originally, the most common type of cleanser was a bar of soap which increased pH levels making it too harsh on the skin. Therefore, toners were created to balance the pH levels of the skin after the use of a cleanser. But today, there are several high quality cleansers in the market that are much safer for the skin. So we don’t need a toner anymore.
If you choose a good quality cleanser, and use a hydrating face cream with active ingredients that support your microbiome’s natural function, you can absolutely the remove toner from your routine.
