Step #1: Cleanse


A very important step to accomplish before you sleep is cleanse your face. Especially when you wore makeup through the day, it’s imperative that you take off all the products in your skin and clean all the dirt and oil as well.

Step #2: Tone


After cleansing, soothe your skin and boost the hydration process by toning. For this step, it’s not that time-consuming to grab a cotton pad and apply your liquid toner all over your face. But if you think that will take you more time than you could afford, you can find a toner that you can spray directly to your face. That way, only a few seconds get spent for this process.
