Can I use toner without moisturizer for dry skin?
It can be a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ too. 1. Some toners are humectants, which means they attract moisture. So, if your skin is extremely oily and if you feel your toner provides enough moisture, you can definitely skip the moisturizer.
Do you put toner on before or after moisturizer?
Because of its water-like consistency, toner is meant to be applied immediately after cleanser and before serums, moisturizers, and oils. If you’re using a super gentle toner that’s main focus is hydration, you can most likely use it daily.
Is a toner really necessary?
No, toning is not necessary for skin health. Toners were originally developed to remove soap scum from the face when lye-based soaps combined with hard water left a sticky residue post cleansing. The alcohol-based toner removed the soap scum eliminating irritation and contributing to cleanser mildness.
