No matter what your skin type or your skin care concerns, the right toner is one of the best things you can apply to your face.
I know, I know, I can hear the arguments pouring through the computer (ha) but I still stand behind my first sentence. I say this with such conviction because I've been using the same toner for over 10 years with fantastic results AND have seen the results without using a toner.

When picking the right toner, you should know these following things before shopping:
1) What type of skin do I have?
2) If I have sensitive skin, do fragrances irritate it?
4) What benefit am I hoping for?

How To Apply a Toner
I'm about to get blasted by people for saying this but I dislike gimmicky products. By this I mean a toner that you spray on your face. Yes, it's convenient but the idea of a toner is to scruff off the dead skin sooooo how would this work exactly? It doesn't, at all. About 95 % of toners should be applied with a cotton pad. As you know, a cotton pad has two sides - one is non-grooved and should be used if you have sensitive skin OR a blemish/breakout area. The grooved side is perfect to use on your T-zone, your nose and areas where your skin is NOT broken out or sensitive. One of the best parts of my day is looking at that little cotton pad to see all the debris my toner removed...ha.

I ONLY use toner for my skin in the morning. I use it to remove my night cream and debris from sleeping. That's it. If I used it anymore for my skin I'd worry about it drying out. Remember the key to skin care is finding the routine that best works for you!
