The importance of facial toner in an anti-aging skincare regimen:
Using a facial toner is a necessary part of your daily anti-aging skincare routine, the important step between cleansing and hydrating.

Face Skin Care – Purpose of a Toner
The purpose of using a toner is to first remove any cleaning residue, dirt, excess oil, makeup, dead skin cells, and any residue that the cleanser has not removed.
The toner also restores the PH balance of the skin and helps prepare it to accept moisturizers and any other serum or anti-aging treatment.
