DO YOU KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF A TONER?
Toners get a pretty bad rep, they've been known to sting, irritate and dry out skin. Chances are that you've just been using the wrong formula.Unlike typical American toners, Korean toners help balance and hydrate. Here, we break down why you really need to consider adding a toner to your regime.
What is a toner?
A toner is a water, alcohol, or gel-based liquid that is, first and foremost, used to balance your skin’s pH levels (normally around 5.5) after you cleanse with your normal face wash. Why do you need this extra step? After you use your regular cleanser, your face becomes more alkaline, which makes it more prone to damage and inflammation. Using a toner balances your skin again.
How do you use toner?
After you wash your face with cleanser, apply a few drops of toner to a cotton pad or your bare fingertips and gently apply all over your face. Let it soak in, and then follow with your essence, serum, or face cream.

Who needs a toner?
Everyone can and should use a toner that is right for their skin type. It’s a common misconception that toners are only for oily skin or for people with acne. This notion likely came about because western toners tend to be alcohol-based and very drying (think astringents). However, a toner’s main purpose is to re-balance your skin after cleansing.
