For your best facial skin, Cleanse, Tone, Protect in the Morning.
Cleanse, Tone & Treat at Night. Toning is part of facial protection.
Don't be fooled. I hear and see very often that toning is not important, that it's an extra expense and unnecessary. Not only do I love the sensation of misting my skin after cleansing, and the fresh tingling feeling of being so clean and refreshed, I also love the extra nutrients and moisture a high quality, natural toner provides when it is sealed in with my favorite moisturizer. I've been toning since I was 20 and I firmly believe (no pun intended :) that it is one of the reasons why, at 59, many people are floored when they learn my age. The picture at right was taken in August of 2017 at age 58.
The Science: Facial toners (aka lotion, mist, spray, tonique) are an essential part of the cleansing ritual. Facial toning lotions restore the skin's natural protective acid mantel, which is the barrier shielding your precious skin from environmental damage from wind, cold, heat, sun and pollution.
A little goes a long way. Acornbodycare.com's preferred method of application is to simply mist on and pat into the skin on your face, neck and décolleté with a clean palm. Use cotton (not poly fiber) to remove excess cleanser or if you wear heavy makeup.
