Is cetaphil facial cleanser could cause serious damage to the body if used frequently for a long time?
No, it's fine to use: Cetaphil facial cleanser or skin cleanser are milder than soaps. The Cetaphil cleansers don't take away too much skin oil, so the cleansers don't leave your skin too dry.

Yes: You should apply a toner and a moisturizer every time you wash your face. If your face is oily, you should use a thin moisturizer (more of a lotion than a cream). Not using a moisturizer can cause your face to produce more oil in an attempt to keep your skin from being too dry. The toner helps to restore pH balance after washing so that the moisturizer can be absorbed. ...Read more
