A toner is often an afterthought in your skincare routine, but every true beauty junkie knows that it’s necessary for providing hydration to the skin after cleansing, which tends to strip away moisture. As they restore pH balance, toners also remove any leftover debris (nothing compares to the satisfaction of seeing a cloudy, brown cotton pad after use) and prep the surface for optimal absorption of serums, moisturizers and oils. To know which one is the right option for you we’ve collected the best toners for your unique skin type. See our guide ahead to discover the one skincare product you never knew you needed.
Opt for a softening formula with a milky consistency to purify the skin and provide deep hydration which lends relief to a tight, scaly dermis.
Choose toners that consist of antioxidants or herbs to restore moisture to dry patches while mattifying oily areas, resulting in a balanced complexion.
Combat grease by selecting toners that minimize pores and absorb excess oil for a clean, matte canvas. If you also struggle with acne, try a treatment toner with gentle exfoliating and antiseptic ingredients to remove impurities and blemishes.
Focus on restoring hydration and elasticity by choosing formulas that fight wrinkles, refine texture and reverse environmental damage.
Fight dark spots and tired, sallow skin with brightening components such as peony, willow bark, vitamin C and exfoliants to slough off dead skin cells to reveal a luminous dermis.
Non-alcohol toners with gentle, natural ingredients such as chamomile, witch hazel and aloe don't irritate the delicate skin. These options will soothe and neutralize your face while cleansing.
