Let's talk about Cleansers and Toner. Everyone has a personal preference when it comes to cleansers. I love a creamy cleanser, others like gels some like oils. Your cleanser needs to remove makeup completely, soften the skin and clean the pores. Your skin should not feel dry or tight after cleansing. You should be using warm water not hot. The reason for a toner is to balance the PH of the skin (which is 5.5) and to remove any trace dirt or makeup left on the skin after cleansing. For anyone who does not feel clean after using a cleanser because you like the tight dry feeling soap gives you the toner can help you feel cleaner. I personally like toner but today most cleanser are PH balanced so if skipping a step works better for you this would be the step to skip. Using soap (bad choice) can strip away the protective acid mantle on the skin. When doing that it leaves your skin open to bacterial invasion if this happens your skin can break out or dry out. Another thing to keep in mind is too much water and very hot water can do this as well.
