Cleanse: You should wash your face twice a day. Tip: using a good face brush will enhance the cleanse and make sure your skin gets a deeper absorption.

Toner: After cleansing your skin, the next step is to use a toner to eliminate residues, oils or makeup leftover by the cleanser. Your skin is now in better shape to absorb moisturizer as well as reduce pore appearance. Few toners could come with antiseptic and PH balancing effects. Apply toner immediately after cleansing the skin, when still damp to derive the best effects.
Exfoliate: With exfoliation, you can remove dead skin cells that generally accumulate in the pores. It is also effective against breakouts, acne and blackheads.

Don't exfoliate too hard, we will recommend using 1/5 of the pressure you use to wash your face.
Moisturize: It offers the skin with a protective layer to retain moisture and keep it hydrated. With proper hydration, your skin appears luminous and smooth.
