I would not recommend an additional toner. If you feel that you need something to neutralize the acids in your routine, the best approach is to use them less frequently and/or in less concentration. Splashing your face with water would have a similar effect to a toner in terms of increasing the surface pH - but you do not really need it if the concentration of acids in your product is right for you. (And I would advice strongly against trying to replicate professional peel strengths at home). The bottom line: The Ordinary AHA 30% might be too much. Most people do not need it.
