The answer to the previous questions might simply be: YOU NEED TONER
What is toner, you ask?
Toner is vital for healthy and clear skin because washing your face is not always enough; that’s why we advise you to use toner after washing to eliminate all the excess oil, dead skin cells, and makeup leftovers. It will also neutralize the skin’s pH, and it is the perfect prep before using moisturizers and serums as it helps skincare products sink deeper into your skin!
But what toner should I use?
First, choosing the toner suitable for your skin is essential; you should take into consideration your face skin type. The most common skin types are:
Oily skin, Dry skin, Sensitive skin, and Combination skin. Each of these skin types requires specific kinds of toner. Let’s go over them type by type and find what is the best toner for you!
- Toner for oily skin
Oily skin usually has large visible pores, frequent acne, blackheads and whiteheads, and a visible shine.
While picking a toner, look for ones that contain BHAs, AHAs, and (PHAs) in lower concentrations, as they exfoliate the skin, shrink and clear out pores, and reduce oil production. To avoid too much dryness, make sure that it contains soothing ingredients like aloe vera.
- Toner for dry skin
There was a common misconception that toners are not for dry skin, but this is wrong. Now we have plenty of toner options made especially for dry skin. It will help to deeply hydrate your skin, giving you that soft and dewy look!
While picking a toner, look for ones that contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and vitamin E, with soothing ingredients like aloe vera.
- Toner for combination skin
Combination skin is facial skin that has both oily and dry areas. So, the best toner for you, if you have this type of skin, is the one that cleanses the skin without drying it out. As with dry skin, try to avoid products that contain alcohol, and go for a toner rich with ingredients particularly beneficial for combination skin, like salicylic acid and lactic acid. Basically, all you have to do is clean the oily parts of your face without dehydrating the dry areas.
- Toner for sensitive skin
Having sensitive skin does not mean you can not use toner; it means you have to check the ingredients carefully before buying one. Try to avoid products that contain alcohol and fragrances to prevent irritation, and pick a moisturizing toner that contains ingredients such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, with soothing ingredients like rosewater and chamomile.
And there you have it, are you thinking about getting a toner now?
