Toner is the first essential step in Korean moisturizing regimen, is used after cleansing. It was originally designed to rebalance your skin after washing with cleansers by restoring your pH balance.
Toner delivers much needed hydration and nutrients like antioxidants and amino-acids.

It also helps to prepare our skin to absorb better the following skincare steps.

But are you applying your toner correctly?

Find out different ways to apply, which works best for your skin!

Cotton Pads.

Probably this is the most common and recommended way to apply toner. Applying toner by cotton pads makes the skin softer and smoother but it also gently exfoliates the skin. It works even better if you have oily or combination skin types, since it also helps to remove any excess of oil and impurities that may remain after cleansing step.

Using Hands.

This part is where you can use “Patting”, the Korean skincare technique. When you apply toner with your hand by patting it onto your skin, you can immediately feel that your skin is hydrated and absorbed all the nutrition.
This method is recommended for dry or sensitive skin types since it is the fasted way to absorb the toner better into skin.
Also the natural heat from our hands helps a lot while we are patting the products on.
