When it comes to beauty products it seems like there is always something new being introduced in the market that claims to be a necessity in our beauty routine but how much of it is just marketing/hype and how much of it is the truth? Well, when it comes to toners, we would argue that using them IS a necessary step in your daily beauty routine.
Nowadays toners are nothing like the traditional OG toners. Remember those that used to sting and dry out your skin due to their high concentration of alcohol? Forget them.
Current toners are much more gentle and hydrating on the skin. With an extensive range of toners available, no matter your skin type, there will definitely be a toner suitable for you!
Ideally, toners should be used after you’ve removed all your makeup and washed your face. Toners remove those stubborn traces of dirt/debris/dead skin remaining which unclogs pores making them seem smaller!
Not sure which kind of toner is suitable for you? Here are five specially curated toners for you to try out!
1. Momohime Peach Moisture Lotion (Toner)
First on our list is the Momohime Peach Moisture Lotion (Toner). Coming from the award-winning Japanese halal brand Momohime, it is suitable for all skin types. It is formulated with 7 different natural moisturizers including Hyaluronic Acid Na (just 1gm of Hyaluronic Acid can hold 6 liters of water!), peach, cherry, and perilla extracts. This product is 100% alcohol, mineral oil, paraben, and colorant free. Some of our customers love that it also helps to make their pores look smaller and does not dry the skin!
2. Itsumi’s Anti-clock Mist Toner
Researched and formulated in Italy, it helps to reduce the signs of aging, evens the skin tone and smoothens as well as hydrates the skin resulting in a radiant, healthier look. A quick spritz and gentle pat are all that is needed - no need for any cotton pads whatsoever! It is free from parabens, SLS, and other nasty harmful chemicals.
3. Aidilic Quintessentials The Toner
Suited for normal to dry/mature skin, it has superstar moisturizing ingredients like Moroccan argan oil, avocado oil, aloe vera juice, botanical Hyaluronic Acid, and extracts of cornflower and green tea. One of the main reasons for aging and wrinkles is, after all, a lack of moisture so this product would be great for those who have drier skin. It is also vegan friendly and free from paraben and phthalates.
4. Oasis Skin Organic Witch Hazel Mist
While this next product is suitable for all skin types, it is especially useful for those with acne or problem skin. It contains extracts from the twigs and bark of the witch hazel tree as you might have guessed.
Witch hazel has long been used to treat acne and other skin problems due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that soothe and heal irritated skin conditions. Since it does not contain any alcohol, it will not dry out your skin too. It is worth noting that it is also free from fragrance, paraben, and SLS which can cause irritation to the skin and further aggravate the acne.
5. Saffron & Rose Organic Rose Water
For those with sensitive skin, Saffron & Rose’s Organic Rose Water is a great option. Rosewater is known for its soothing properties. With its rich antioxidant as well as vitamin A and C content, it is well suited for use as a facial toner and for healing the skin. Aside from a toner, it can also be used as a coolant for sunburned skin as well as an antiseptic for cuts and insect bites.
Toners not only nourish, replenish, and restore your skin but can act as a primer for your remaining skincare products. It helps your skin absorb the subsequent products more effectively. Spritz on anytime during the day to give your skin a hydration boost whenever you need it!
