With the introduction of Korea's ever famous multi-step skincare regime, more and more people often underestimate the use of a Toner. With the media constantly focusing on results and results, a very important step of your daily skin care regime should always include a cleanser and toner before anything else!
Many common misconceptions about toners are that they are used only for oily skin, only if you wear makeup or even as far as only for those with large pores. But in fact, there are different types of toners for different skin types so do check the ingredient list before getting one to ensure it is suitable for your skin.
A rule of thumb - if you have sensitive skin, try to avoid a toner that contains alcohol as it may agitate your skin. If alcohol is a must, you can choose those with fatty alcohols as these types of alcohols are non-drying and help prevent water loss.
Here's how to make the best out of a bottle of toner by applying it in different ways to benefit your skin type!
1) Cotton Pad
After cleansing, grab a cotton pad & soak it with a bit of toner. Wipe the cotton pad all over your face and pat in the excess.
2) DIY Mask
Soak cotton pads with toner & place them over your face for 3 - 5 mins. It's a quick and convenient way to hydrate and soothe your dry and inflamed skin quickly.
3) Facial Mist
Pour some toner in a spray bottle to use as a facial mist. You can even use it to set your makeup and eliminate the powdery finish.
4) Toner Wash
Cleanse your skin as usual. Mix 1 part toner with 9 parts water. Use this mixture to wash your face and pat dry after. This method thoroughly eliminates dirt from the skin while supplying it with nutrients.
5) 7 Skin Method
Pat a few drops of toner gently onto your skin until it is fully absorbed. Layer on 7 times.
