Should I use a tonic?
While using a tonic is optional, let’s check out why you’ll probably want to add it to your routine.
- A tonic has multiple benefits and uses, the first being that it is super effective in removing any last traces of dirt or makeup after cleansing, ensuring that your skin is extra clean
- Second, tonics balance your skin’s pH levels for optimal skin health while also giving skin a smoother, clearer appearance
- And lastly, thanks to their additional skin softening properties, tonics help to prep skin to receive the most potent benefits from the next step in your routine, whether it be a facial mask or serum
