There is some debate over whether or not toners are necessary. The purpose of a toner is to remove any dirt or oil left behind after cleansing your face. If you like the way your skin feels after using a toner, you should use one. Otherwise, your microdermabrasion treatment will remove any dirt and oil on your face. If you are not sure how clean your face is after your treatment, rinse your face six times with warm water. This will get rid of any dirt left behind and eliminate the need for a toner. Always rinse your face one final time with cool water to close your pores.
Most experts agree that applying sunscreen is the most important step of your skincare regimen. Sun damage is the number one cause of fine lines, wrinkles and all age-related facial skin problems. Of greater concern is the risk of skin cancer. You need to use sunscreen every day. The sooner you add this into your regimen, the better. Use it all year round, regardless of the weather. You can incorporate sunscreen into your regimen two ways.
The first option is purchasing two moisturizers: one for daytime use with sunscreen in it and one for the night without sunscreen. It is best not to use sunscreen at night.
The second option is to buy a Premium moisturizer, such as Refreshen and use a separate sunscreen during the day.
