In order for the care products you have chosen to be effective, it is important to correctly understand their purpose and be able to use them correctly. Therefore, today we will talk about one of our new products, which still raises many questions in you - TONERS.
As you know, facial care should consist of at least three stages:
If everything is more or less clear with the first and third points, then many underestimate toning in vain.
It is this stage that removes the remnants of impurities and cleansers, normalizes the level of acidity of the skin, provides it with deep hydration, has a calming effect, evens out tone, returns a fresher and healthier look.
TONER IS NOT TONIC
Despite the consonance of names, these products are from different skin care systems and perform different functions.
Tonic in the European system is the final stage of skin cleansing.
Its main task is to remove the remnants of cosmetics, cleansers and tone the skin. The texture of the tonic is liquid, like water, and it is applied with a cotton pad.
Toner in the Asian system is the first step in moisturizing the skin after cleansing.
It helps to retain moisture in the epidermis, normalizes the PH level after cleansing, serves as a conductor before the subsequent application of serum and cream.
It is applied with hands, patting movements along the massage lines, without the use of cotton pads. Moreover, this must be done within three seconds after washing, on still slightly damp skin, in order to have time to seal the water molecules in the cells.

SECRETS OF THE CORRECT APPLICATION OF TONERS
Toner is the most important step in facial care. The texture is slightly thicker than water: something between a hydrosol and a serum.
For deeper hydration, apply toner immediately after washing to still damp skin - to do this, you can lightly blot your face with a tissue or pre-sprinkle the skin with a hydrolat.
Pour a little product into the palm of your hand and gently, with soft imprinting movements, distribute along the massage lines. No rinsing or removal of toner residue is required. We recommend applying it daily in the morning and evening after cleansing.
Due to the presence of active ingredients, the toner can be used as an independent moisturizer, for example, in summer, when you don’t want dense textures, or applied as a makeup base.
The increased concentration of nutrients actively moisturizes, restores, literally revitalizes and tones the skin from the inside. Ideally complements and enhances the subsequent stages of care.
Nutrients are much easier to penetrate if the skin is properly prepared for their application. Moist and soft, it absorbs all the active components of serum and cream much more efficiently, which, of course, affects the condition of the face.
Thus, the complex care system from SmoRodina, consisting of toner, serum and cream, with a high content of active ingredients of targeted action, solves skin problems much more effectively, provides balanced care and prolonged results:
The ANTI-ACNE series is taken with the imperfections of oily and problem skin
The MICROBIOME series normalizes the microbiota on the surface of the face and returns the natural radiance to the skin of any type and age
