WHY DO WE NEED TO USE FACIAL TONIC?
If you do not want to have a dull, wrinkled, droopy or damaged skin, you need to take great care of your skin care over the years.
Although most people use a skin moisturizer on a daily basis, many people miss out the most important first step which is facial tonic.
You need to use a facial tonic twice in a day.

After washing your face with cold water

First clean your make up and apply your facial tonic. If you want, you can use a second moisturizer.
Using a natural tonic which does not include alcohol and harmful substances (and so on) is highly important. These harmful substances can disrupt the natural pH balance and can cause toxic substances to penetrate your skin through the pores of your skin and even can cause an undesirable appearance on your skin.
