*Someone recently asked me how to apply toner so I thought id make an entire post to answer the question for maybe others that are unsure as well. I think it is a very important step in the skin care process and everyone should know how.
How to apply facial toner properly
Step 1 Wash your face
Splash your face with warm water and make sure your hands are clean. Apply the cleanser to your face with circular motions. Make sure you cover all the areas forehead, chin, nose, cheeks and neck then rinse with lukewarm water.
Step 2 Apply the facial toner
A toner should always be applied to a cleansed face.
Toner can be applied with a cotton pad,clean hands or by spraying on.The most common way is with a cosmetic pad or cotton ball. Saturate the cotton pad and pat the toner gently over your face and neck area. Apply it to the forehead, cheeks, chin and nose, or to the whole face. Never rub your skin when applying toner.
Step 3 Apply moisturizer
After applying facial toner your skin may feel a little tight and dry and that's why you need to apply a facial moisturizer after toning your skin.
