What I've known: what I've always been told is that toning is just to tighten your pores, to absorb any excess oil and prepare your skin for moisturizer. True; but all my toners have ever seemed to do is smell strong and make my skin feel tight.. Because of my acne, I generally use a toner with salicilyc acid in it. That's seriously all I look for is "_% salicilyc acid" -lately I've been using the one that comes in the clear proof system which has I think 1% salicilyc- but then I read something on double toning---- read on.
Double toning: things I've read about double toning are mainly from Caroline Hirons blog -I've talked about her and linked her in a previous post- the two toners you should use are an exfoliating one and a moisturizing one. I have no idea if the ones I'm using are exfoliating or moisturizing all I know is they're supposed to help dry up my acne... I also don't know how to look for this and if this will help or hurt my acne. Ugh; if I could just have perfect skin that'd be great. Can I get that for Christmas...
That's literally everything I know about toning. I'm so sorry this post wasn't more informative, but if you have any advice I'll be more than willing to take it!!
Hope everyone has had a great weekend!
