Tone 

Toners serve to remove traces of dirt or makeup left behind by cleanser. Toners also restore the PH of your skin, shrink pores and control acne. Astringents and alcohol-based toners can be harsh on your skin by causing excessive dryness. When picking a toner, go for one that is with ingredients that suits your skin type and free of alcohol.

Always layer on your products in the correct order – if you’re using acne medicine or treatment serums, start with cleanser, followed by medicine or serum, and end with moisturizer. In addition to following the CTM routine religiously, do exfoliate your skin – not just face, but head to toe, once a week or according to your skin’s sensitivity level. Exfoliating regularly sloughs off the outer layer of dead skin cells that make your skin look dull and lifeless. When exfoliating your face, steer clear of the delicate area around your eyes. The skin repairs itself during the night so the best time to exfoliate in the morning when you can scrub away all the build-up of dead skin cells Cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin each day, provide ample sun protection without fail, and exfoliate once a week to keep your skin looking fresh, youthful, and radiant.
