Q: Do you need to use a toner after cleansing?

A: Often called an unnecessary step in our skincare regimen, toners have a seemingly bad rep in the beauty world. Up until recently, even I skimped on the whole toning process and stuck with my serums, cleansers and moisturisers. But after speaking to countless makeup artists, skincare therapists and, er, the internet, I realised that these formulas are indeed important.

First and foremost, if you're using a creamy or milky cleanser, toners help to remove the residue left over as well as any remaining particles of makeup or grime. If you've got problematic skin, a toner with astringent or exfoliating properties can work to reduce your pores and help combat pigmentation. They're also great as a face mist, especially when it's scorching hot outside. Lastly, many toners help to prepare the skin for moisturising and serums by softening and balancing it out.

There are also lots of options for various skin types, and many formulas are alcohol-free, meaning you don't have to worry about drying your skin out (or getting it drunk, ha...ha). Plus, they're really easy to use too. After cleansing, simply pat your skin dry and saturate a cotton pad with a toner before swiping it over your face, avoiding the eye area. You don't even need to rinse it off!

So get ready to spritz and splash your skin into shape with these 10 toning must-haves.
