    So you bought a complete line of skincare products for your skin and you want to make the most of them? Believe it or not, the way you apply your skincare products can determine the success or the failure of the treatment. We’ll show you how to apply the first two steps on any skincare routine: the cleanser and the toner.

    WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF USING A CLEANSER?

    The cleanser is a very important first step on the skincare routine because is set to remove the impurities from the skin. The cleanser has the goal of removing makeup, oil, dirt, and grime. Also, it prepares the skin for follow up products.

    How and when to apply cleanser? This depends on the skin type. So, most dermatologists recommend applying cleanser twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Of course, this is a rule for oily skin individuals, but persons with dry skin could skip this step in the morning and use the cleanser only in the evening, according to the severity of the dryness and to what a dermatologist or esthetician indicates during a private consultation.

    On the other hand, if you are using the cleanser only once a day, our recommendation is to use a facial cleansing brush for deeper and better cleansing. Cleansers can come in water-based or oil-based products. Water-based cleansers are suggested for oily skin types and oil-based for dry skin types. Depending on how oily your skin, it is suggested to look for a cleanser with Alpha hydroxy acid added, to penetrate through the oily barrier and remove debris from the pores.

    WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF USING THE TONER?

    Toner is part of the second step of any skincare routine. After the use of cleanser, the toner has the purpose of restoring the skin’s natural PH and protect the acid mantle (top layer film), that helps the skin keep out bacteria and the elements from the environment. Avoid toners with alcohol. Toners will strip the protective film from the top layer of the skin. Toners should be applied before applying a serum or treatment lotion.

    Another fact is that the toner helps remove any residual cleanser. Depending on your skin type, active ingredients in toners may vary from the ones with gentle acidic formulations (for dry, oily, and combination), to a highly hyaluronic acid formulated (dry or oily), and the ones with antiseptic formulas (especially for acne).

    HOW TO USE THE CLEANSER AND THE TONER ON THE SKINCARE ROUTINE?

    These are the steps to use a water based cleanser:

    • Moisten the skin with warm water
    • Apply cleanser with the fingertips in a circular motion, on face and neck
    • Rinse the face and neck areas with warm water
    • Pat dry with a clean towel.

    If you are using an oil based cleanser for dry or mature skin, these are the steps you need to follow:

    • Apply the cleanser dry on your face and neck, with the fingertips
    • Gently massage the cleanser on dry skin, for 20 seconds
    • Add a little amount of water and massage for another 10 seconds
    • Rinse the face and neck areas with warm water
    • Pat dry with a clean towel.

    Foaming gel cleansers steps to follow:

    • Moisten the skin with warm water
    • Apply cleanser with the fingertips in a circular motion, on face and neck
    • Rinse the face and neck areas with warm water
    • Pat dry with a clean towel.

    Even though the cleanser has different steps to use depending on the type of cleanser, all toners are used in the same way. Once you have applied the cleanser, here are the steps to use the toner:

    • Saturate a cosmetic cotton pad with toner
    • Gently wipe the pad on your face and neck in circular motion
    • Avoid the contact with the areas around your eyes.
