In Japanese skin-care, it is not a toner or astringent that comes after cleansing their skin. They use facial lotion which is the first step toward moisturizing your skin. Lotion is an essential part of skin care among the Japanese because well-moisturized skin is the canvas upon which you’ll apply your other products, like moisturizer, and makeup.
Summer in the Philippines can be very hot and humid and that summer heat can affect your skin’s moisture leaving it dry and dull. That is why, hydration is a must. Aside from drinking lots of water, you may also use skincare products that can keep your skin hydrated. A hydrating lotion would do but some leave a sticky feeling. And you don’t want that.
