Everyone should know that cleansing is the first step in any skin care regimen. However, the toning process should always follow in order to complete the step and prepare the skin for moisturizers and the active ingredients that are found in treatment products for specific issues and skin types. Astara Toners/Clarifiers are able to eliminate any impurities that may remain on the skin after one has cleansed. It is difficult to wash off every bit of dirt and grime and this is why it is important to follow with Astara Toners/Clarifier. These post-cleansing aids can also remove residue left behind from the cleanser itself while also helping to eliminate dead skin cells which can plug the pore walls and build up to create a dull effect on the complexion.
