The skin toner is a basic element in any beauty routine. The Koreans placed it on the pedestal. So much so, that many of them practice the "7 Skin Method", which consists of applying toner seven times; yes, wash the face, wait for it to dry, apply the toner, let it absorb, and do the same again six times.
The benefits of facial toner
The skin toner plays a fundamental role and is responsible for the soft and glowing skin that Korean women are famous for. Its benefits are multiple: it helps revitalize the skin, tightens pores, restores the pH of the skin, which is modified after facial cleansing, and hydrates.
One for each skin type
Everyone wants to practice K-Beauty, and the supply of toners grew exponentially. Today there are varieties for all skin types, such as those prone to acne, oily, dry, and sensitive.
In the case of acne, toners usually incorporate components such as salicylic acid into the formula, which reduces the inflammation of the spots. For sensitive skin or those undergoing an anti-pigmentation treatment, there are alcohol-free toners. And when the skin is very dry, something that usually happens in winter, those that add moisturizing agents to the formula are recommended.
Toner Wash Method

After applying the cleansing product, still, with wet skin, apply the toner by hand and rinse with water. This way, the skin is more hydrated and fresh.
