Toners, aaahh! If you’re in your late twenties like me, you’d probably associate a toner with a painful stinging sensation and mild to severe acne in your teens! Your dermatologist probably told you to put some watery looking stuff onto a cotton pad and give your face a rub down with it? Yep, that was a toner! Most of us associate a toner with something that burns, stings and dries the shit out of your skin. But that was back in the past. Modern-day toners have close to no alcohol content in them and are loaded with antioxidants and skin soothing ingredients. And everyone can and should use a toner! It’s not only you acne riddled teens anymore.It’s about time we get past the notion that toners are only really useful for oily skin types. While the main purpose of a toner is to remove residual oil, dirt, and grime, a good toner will also help restore the moisture balance of your skin while actively improving your skin’s texture. It will also control redness and flaking when it comes to dry skin. But the only way to reap these benefits is by choosing the right toner for your skin type. In this article, I’ve put together a list of the 10 best toners for dry skin.
