As important as double cleansing, people!

My current double-toning products

After that double cleanse, using toners are critical. Why? Because they’ll help to remove any impurities left behind by cleansers. But, seriously, do we need two toners to do that? Well, if you have problematic skin like me (read: prone to fungal-acne and closed comedones), you might need both, Exfoliating Toner and Hydrating Toner.

You see, exfoliating toner is like one level up from ordinary toners. Most of them have additional acids that can help clean away those dead skin cells, improving rough skin texture and dullness. This alone can be tough for some, so need to get extra hydration from fellow toner.

Just like the name stated, hydrating toner was made to hydrate. Not just that, think of it as a booster for more steps after (essence, serum, ampoule).

And….just like double cleanse, personally I only do double toning once a day, for my PM Routine. Trust me, I’ve tried to do it twice a day, but ended up over-exfoliating and aggravate those fungal-acne.

Current HG Exfoliating Toner. Expensive like hell, but worth every drop.

So how to double tone exactly? Easy. Exfoliating toner: use with cotton pads.

I like this because it’s unscented and not sticky

Hydrating toner: use your hands and tap

Then follow by essence, serum, ampoule, eye cream, moisturizer and SPF (for AM)
