6 Hydrating Toners for Dry Skin Types
Once upon a time, toners were considered harsh, drying products that you may have avoided if you have dry or sensitive skin. Flash-forward to today and that’s no longer the case. Toners have evolved and now come in many different forms, including those that are hydrating and gentle.
Like most beauty products these days, though, picking the right toner can be overwhelming, especially if you tend to have dry or sensitive skin. To help narrow down the options, check out our favorite soothing, hydrating toners.
Because alcohol is a drying ingredient, look for a toner formulated without it like this cult-favorite toner from Kiehl’s. Soothing ingredients like calendula, burdock root and allantoin make this toner a great pick for anyone with sensitive skin.
Regardless of your skin type, it’s important to slough away dead surface skin cells in order to maintain a bright-looking complexion, which is why the SkinCeuticals Equalizing Toner is a game-changer. It gently (we repeat, gently) exfoliates skin and hydrates simultaneously, plus is alcohol, fragrance- and synthetic-free.
Acne-prone skin can be tricky to say the least, especially when dryness is an added concern. Formulated with salicylic acid, the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Clarifying Solution Acne Toner is specifically designed to address acne and breakouts. It unclogs pores and works to create a smoother skin texture and is suitable for sensitive skin.
With a light, serum-esque texture, this toner-meets-moisturizer focuses on rehydrating and comforting the skin. Ingredients like sweet almond extract and hyaluronic acid help make skin more supple over time. And bonus, the packaging is actually stunning and makes for a great Instagram shelfie.
This gentle formula works to remove residue and excess impurities from the skin without stripping it of its moisture. Wipe a saturated cotton pad all over your face to unveil clean, moisturized and refreshed skin.
This moisturizing toner is great for anyone, but specifically those with dry skin. It addresses rough texture by infusing castor oil into the skin and creating a healthy base that will help the skin better absorb moisturizer, serum and eye cream.
