    sarawsmallThrough innovative training programs and tools, Sara Whittaker, National Director of Education, inspires, develops and guides the national team of Clinique skincare and makeup experts to deliver the highest level of beauty knowledge and service to women across Canada.

    With over 25 years experience in the cosmetic industry, Sara represents Clinique at all major North American dermatology conventions where she collaborates and shares information with physicians from around the world. Because she’s as comfortable reading skin science journals as she is reading Vogue, Sara’s beauty expertise and talent does not go unnoticed by others in industry. She is frequently quoted in Canada’s top media, and is a regular guest on television’s CityLine program.

    “It’s important for me to believe that the service and expertise we provide actually have an impact on skin appearance as well as the psyche,” Sara says. “Clinique isn’t hope in a jar, but products that deliver visible differences to the skin.”

      Today’s question is one we’ve all probably wondered at some point…

        Q: Do I really need a toner?

        A: No, you don’t really need a simple toner, as toners can merely be an adjunct to cleansing, and help to basically freshen the skin. However, if you notice your skin flaking in areas, clogged pores, or if you’d like your skin to look brighter with more even tone and texture, then a “toner” that e exfoliates the skin would be beneficial. You want to look for toners that contain salicylic acid, and you would also want it to be custom-fit to your skin type as well.
