Immediately following treatment, I like to use an alcohol free witch hazel toner, my favorite brand is called Thayers. It is available as a toner and also as an astringent. I suggest that clients use this product morning and evening and even after going to the gym/exercise. I ask that clients use it after cleansing. The witch hazel balances the pH of the skin. The slightly acidic result protects the skin better. If you find an alcohol free witch hazel toner, and like the ingredients, try it and let us know if that makes a difference.
