Toners are a great tool to tighten cell gaps after you’ve cleansed your skin, it looks just like water (we promise it’s not water) it’s full of hydrogen and oxygen, toners are different depending on the brand, some may contain acids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Essentially toners are a water-like liquid that delivers hydration to your skin, whilst removing some dead skin cells off your skin. You may find that your skin has a glow to it once the toners dried on your face. 

Toners are a great way to prep your skin for the rest of your skincare routine, removing impurities and it can act in the same way as a wet sponge, whereby your skin will soak in the moisture applied after the toner. 

Look after your skin as it’ll be with you for your entire life 

If you suffer from dry skin, you may resist the idea of using a toner because you’re thinking it’ll make your dry skin worse. Traditionally you would have been right because toners used to be designed with oily and combination skin in mind however times have changed and so have toners.

Choice, choice, choices…

As with all products, there are so many choices, that it can be extremely confusing so here are the ingredients you need to have in your toner if you have dry skin:

  • Rosewater 
  • Hyaluronic Acid 
  • Aloe Vera 
  • Glycerin 

These ingredients provide moisture to your skin and provide that pumped, hydrated look.

Try to avoid any harsh ingredients in your toner such as highly acidic ingredients, avoid the following in your toner:

  • Fragrances
  • Benzoyl peroxide 
  • Salicylic acid 
  • Alcohol
