It is a no-brainer why cleansing your face is important. Dirt, grime and the pollution affects your skin. For women, it is important that you remove your make-up before sleeping. Use baby oil or any cleansing milk of your choice to clean your face before you wash it.
You don’t want to mix everything and lead it to more breakout. You can even use a wet wipe. Post that, make sure you wash your face with a good face wash and don’t forget your neck in the process.
You might think that if you don’t have an acne prone skin or open pores, then you don’t need to tone your face. Also, it is a myth that if you are in your 20’s then your skin won't sag. Please remember that you need to start early in life and this relation with your skin care is for life, not like it’s optional!
Toners ensure that your pores stay clean and the cleansing you did stays intact. Invest in a good toner and if you are a DIY fan, then cucumber juice, rose water or rubbing plain ice cubes works wonders for your skin.
Toning also ensures that no product or residue is left on the face. Also, remember that your neck also needs all the attention.

The last, but not the least step in the CTM routine is to seal and lock your hard work with a good moisturiser. People with oily skin will believe that they need to skip this step, however this is where you are wrong.
The fact that you don’t provide enough moisture to your skin leads to your pores producing more sebum which block them.
A lightweight lotion or a good layer of a thick moisturiser works wonders for your skin and will prevent it from premature ageing and fine lines.
