Cleansing is the keystone of an effectual skin care regimen. It plays an important role in skin care irrespective of the skin type. A good cleanser reduces the skin’s bacteria, exfoliates the surface’s skin cells, and loosens the clogged pores. Cleanse twice a day, both in the morning and the night. If you have a sensitive skin, opt for cleansers made from natural products. An effective way is to use cold milk. Take few drops of cold milk and apply on your face with cotton. If your face is oily, add few drops of water with the milk.

Toners come in both alcoholic [basically for oily skin] and non-alcoholic [meant for dry skin] forms. They typically clean the leftovers of the cleanser, stimulate blood circulation, restore the pH balance and tone up the muscles. However, few experts say that the alcohol found in most toners can be quite harmful for the skin. Nevertheless, if you have selected a good cleanser, you don’t really need a toner to ‘deep clean.’ On the other hand, a natural way for toning is to splash your face with cold water. This will close the pores that was opened while cleansing. Rosewater is also a good alternative.
It is a misconception that moisturizers are mandatory only for people with dry skin. In fact, it is a must for all skin types. Whatever cleansing regime you pursue, you will need to follow with a moisturizer. It also provides as a great base for make-up as the make-up tends to stay for a longer time when a moisturizer is used. People who have oily skin can opt for a oil-free or light weight moisturizer while the ones with dry skin should make use of a rich moisturizer.
