Beauty tonics, elixirs, essences. Call them what you want, they’re an essential part of any glowing complexion’s skincare routine, and have been a staple part of Korean beauty regimes for years.
No matter your skin type or concern,there is a tonic or essence to help improve its tone, radiance and overall health. Like it or not, this is a part of your routine that you shouldn’t skip on as the trend is about to become huge for 2018, and with very good reason.
What you may not know however, is that they’re also brilliant to use in your haircare routine. Like tonics for the skin, hair tonics are excellent refreshers, and depending on your concern, can give you the hair you’ve always wanted.
Tonics for the skin
You’ve heard of cleansing, toning and moisturising but things can seem a little complicated when you start introducing steps like beauty tonics, essences and elixirs.
There’s no need to feel daunted though, they’re such a simple step but pack a real punch when it comes to improving your skin and health of your complexion. Simply pour or spritz onto a cotton pad and swipe; it’s that easy.
If you need hydration
If your skin is feeling a little dehydrated, a simple routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising just won’t cut it. The added step of a hydrating beauty tonic will give your skin the shot of moisture it so desperately craves.
Our favourite product is the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic, which is suitable for the most parched and sensitive of complexions. Formulated with an Enriched Mineral Water Blend, the liquid also contains Cucumber, Aloe Leaf and Chamomile, which leaves skin feeling soft and comfortable.
