I have noticed throughout the past years I have been treating my skin for acne that not every regimen is the same. Some come with a toner (and no treatment), a treatment (and no toner), or they come with both. I have always enjoyed using the brands that come in sets of 3, even though they never worked (i.e. Murad, Proactiv, Epionce), because I felt like putting 4 different things on my skin x2 a day was a little drastic. Not to mention my skin hates everything. It is bitter! and picky! Toner is great and BP 2.5% is great too (if it works for you) But, when do you give up one for the other? Do you alternate? I have been told time and time again that toner works well to reduce pore size. If clogged pores causes acne (amongst other things) then why do we not simply just use pore minimizing cleanser, toner, and moisturizer to rid ourselves of this once and for all?
Let me know your thoughts. I'm really curious as to what everyone thinks. Thanks
