Is it proper to tone before you put on a mask? I use an aspirin mask once a day, and I'm unsure if I should use toner before or after the mask...

Also, I find I get the best results from an aspirin mask when I mix it with yogurt, presumably from the lactic acid. Would yogurt be too "much" to use on a daily basis, because I know acids cause skin to thin...

I use the toner after I mask/cleanse and before the moisturizer.

I think if the aspirin mask is actually making you peel, then it is too much everyday, but if you are not actually peeling, I think you are fine. I make mine with yogurt too, and I find it to be quite gentle. Smile

It seems to make sense to tone after the mask since you will eventually be washing the mask off. If you tone afterwards, our skin can absorb the toner for it to really work.

What is the yogurt to asprin ratio you use?

Thx!

I too would say use a toner after using a mask to close your pores.

I use 6 aspirin, dissolve them in a drop or 2 of ACV, and maybe a teaspoon of yogurt,

Daisie,
I actually tone before and after sometimes.
