We all know the three steps of cleanse, tone, and moisturise, basics of skincare routines. Yet many people are still unaware of what toner really is and don't know if they should use it or how to use it.

What is toner?
To put it simply, toner is a quick, absorbing liquid that helps to remove excess residue such as whatever's left of makeup, dirt, and oil after cleansing. It thoroughly cleans the skin and helps remove built up surface dead skin cells, correcting and balancing the pH of your skin. Toners are the most helpful and necessary for those with oily or acne-prone skin, or for those who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup or other heavy skin products.
