Toners help balance your skins PH level as well as removes dirt and debris that may be on you skin (dead skin etc). Also, the proactiv toner has glycolic acid which helps exfoliate and fade red marks.

So If I was too use a toner, where would I fit it into the Regimen? Like Cleanser, Toner, Bp, Moisturizer or what? Thanks biggrin.gif

I use my toner right after I cleanse. So:

- cleanser

- toner

- BP

- moisturise

Johnoz, I don't know. I wouldn't want to give you the wrong advice. I've never been on accutane but I do use the Proactiv toner. Most people here seem to say your skin is too sensitive for anything but gentle cleansers and moisturisers on accutane and it can scar easily. Your face might get a bit red and irritated with the glycolic acid, though I'm unsure what percentage it is. My understanding is, you cannot start treating your scars and red marks until after your accutane treatment is finished.

ballaballa, it's been slowly but surely fading my red marks. And it helped with blackheads too. My skin is so smooth. smile.gif
