Skin Looking a Little Parched? Try One of These Hydrating Toners, Yes Toners
For the longest time, face toners have gotten a bad wrap. Often labelled drying, harsh and irritating, most people skip over them in their skincare routines. Well, I'm here to convince you to give them a second chance.
Traditionally, toners were designed to be a step in your skincare routine that removed any residue after cleansing and prepped the skin for oils, serums and moisturisers. Meaning they were formulated with high concentrations of alcohol and astringent ingredients that would strip the skin leaving it feeling tight and dried out.
Nowadays, next-gen formulas are typically alcohol-free and design to target a range of skin concerns like dry skin, oiliness, acne and anti-ageing. Depending on your skin concern, you can tailor your toner to add value to your skincare routine, rather than it simply just being another step, especially in Winter.
Your Winter skincare routine should be all about hydration and if you want to get the most out of your tone during the colder months you should look for one that contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, purslane extract, jojoba milk and oat extracts. Ingredients like these will all give your skin a much-needed boost of hydration and create a good base for the rest of your skincare products to seep into.
Below, we've rounded up some of the best hydrating toners worth adding to your skincare routine.
