Toners in Korean Skincare: How to Choose and Apply It Correctly!

Facial toner, often simply known as "toner," is an essential liquid product for skincare. It is applied after cleansing and before serums or moisturizers. Its main function is to balance the skin's pH, remove residues, provide hydration, enhance the absorption of other products, and offer soothing properties. In this blog, we will help you choose the right toner for your skin type and teach you how to apply it correctly. ūüíßūüíÜ‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ

ūüĎÜMethods for Applying Toner:¬†

1. Apply on Damp Skin: Forget about completely drying your face. Apply the toner with slightly damp skin for better absorption. ūüí¶

2. Apply with Gentle Patting: Due to its watery texture, it's common to apply large amounts of toner directly to the skin. Instead, use a moderate amount and apply it with gentle patting motions on the skin. You can also use a cotton pad to apply the toner, which will provide a gentle exfoliation while saturating your skin with the benefits of the tonerūüĎŹ

3. Toner Pads: An effective option is to use toner pads. These cotton pads are soaked in active ingredients and adhere to your cheeks, chin, and nose. Wait a few minutes for the toner to be fully absorbed. It's the simplest way!

- Oily Skin: For oily skin, try Anua's "Heartleaf 77% Soothing Toner." This toner helps balance moisture in oily skin, removes dead cells, and helps combat blackheads. ūüĆŅ

- Dry Skin: If you have dry skin, RoundLab's toner is a highly hydrating option that also provides gentle exfoliation. It is enriched with moisturizing ingredients and hyaluronic acid for long-lasting hydration. ūüíß
