What's wrong with using toner for removing make-up?

Postby tranquillusion » Sat, 17 Jun 2006 9:33 pm

Hiya,.. i use a cream make-up remover from Estee Lauder,.. but i experimented and found that toner works rather well as well,.. :P Is there a reason why i cannot use it any further? I've only been using it on one or two occasions, so but i notice it removes much more in a swipe.

yours sincerely,
tran

Toners

Toners are supposed to deep cleanse your pores and reduce the size of it. It's better to use a make up remover to remove your makeups.

Please use MAKE-UP REMOVER.. If you only do light make-up, I can say that some Gel-based face cleanser are able to remove light make-up but if you put make-up based, foundation then pls use Makeup Remover.. after that use apply TONER wit cotton pad.
Toner is not meant for heavy cleaning. It is used to remove the last residue on the face, tighten the pores, balance the skin pH and prepare the skin for moisturiser..
Imagine u use Toner to clean makeup, only some dirt will be clean n the rest lock in your pores then you apply moisturiser.. Not long, you will have congestion problem.

If you use sunscreen and foundation, all the more you need a proper cleanser, creamy/milky/oil to remove all this make up. Then followed by a toner to remove all last residue to complete the cleansing. If you are fortunate enough to have very good skin now, please follow these steps to keep your good skin going. Don't allow any clogging of your skin by improper cleansing
