• Start your day with clean skin. I like to use a cleansing milk with my Clairsonic Pro in the morning to get a deep clean. The cleansing milk leaves my skin clean without feeling dry or stripped.

• Always use a toner. A toner is the second step in cleansing and it also balances out the pH level of your skin. For those with drier skin, I suggest using a spray toner. I use an Ionizing Vita Flower Mist by Red Flower; it leaves my skin refreshed.
