The Best Toners For Every Skin Concern

Hey Lovelies!

You may wonder if we really need toner in our skincare routine. The answer is a firm yes. First and foremost, those with acne prone or oily skin should always reach for the toner. It will significantly aid in removing excess sebum and unclog pores. However, everyone can benefit from the right toner for their skin type. It helps to diminish enlarged pores (a plus for just about everyone); restore pH balance; can prevent ingrown hairs, and some offer a layer of protection too. Here are the best toners for every skin concern.

1.For The Best Anti-Aging Toner Choose: Obagi Nu-Derm Toner, £39.53 (200ml), www.skinstation.co.uk

Obagi is probably the best skincare brand on the market. Offering massive anti-aging benefits that actually deliver impressive results, it’s no wonder this toner continues on its sell-out path. Additionally, the formula includes natural extracts such as aloe, calendula, sage and witch hazel to provide anti-inflammatory, plumping and protective qualities. Some key benefits include:

Targets dark spots.

Non-drying (unlike most toners).

Restores pH balance.

Tighten skin appearance, reducing look of pore size.

Preps the skin for deep delivery of skincare ingredients.

Provides optimal toning capabilities for clear and rejuvenated skin.

This was the first Obagi product I tried, and I have been hooked ever since!

2.For Pore-Trouble Try: Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizing Toner, £35, www.perriconemd.co.uk

Unless you are one of the very few in the world who are incredibly lucky (probably the same people who win the lottery), then pore size will be somewhere at the top of your skin hate list. The No-Rinse Intensive Pore Minimizing Toner combines DMAE, salicylic acid and a copper complex of which work in unison to gently exfoliate, remove excess sebum and reduce visibility of pores. Furthermore, DMAE has been shown to improve the quality of skin and achieve anti-aging benefits.

This is an incredible toner and one that remains on my firm fave list. Clinical studies show that 75% experienced an improvement in skin texture and pore size! I regularly use this toner and highly recommend anyone else suffering from a similar pore-plight to give it a whirl.

3.For A Vegan Formula That Offers Hydration Choose: Pure Rosewater by Poppy Austin, £15.49 (120ml), www.amazon.co.uk

I absolutely love this vegan-friendly toner! The benefits of rosewater are often overlooked – and boy, they shouldn’t be. Including 100% pure unrefined Moroccan rosewater is brimming with antioxidants and works on so many levels.

Such Benefits Include:

A healthy radiant glow.

Calm inflammation.

Restore pH balance.

Unblock and refine pore size.

This is one outstanding and very affordable toner.

The eyes are the window to the soul and as such, we want them looking gorgeously appealing for a s long as possible. No one understands this more than Korean women and one of their favourite is Benton’s Fermentation Eye Cream. So, I took this advice and have been using the eye cream for 2 months and I love how smooth my eye area both looks and feels.

Combining ingredients such as Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifida Ferment Lysate, sh-Oligopeptide-1, and Ceramides, the cruelty-free formula really makes a difference to those with dry or aging skin. Furthermore, this high-quality and much sought-after eye cream contains macadamia seed oil. This wondrous ingredient combines fatty acids (including Omega 9) to fully moisturise, regenerate and soften the skin. You will love the results!

2.Moisturiser: For Dry Skin Try LJH Dr.’s Care BIO+N Barrier Cream For Oily, Sensitive And Very Dry Skin (Anti-Aging), $15, www.amazon.com

The rationale behind K-beauty’s 10-step system is that by layering up your products, your skin will truly reap the benefits. Moisturising is the one remaining step in a Korean night-time skincare routine and should you have dry skin, you need to look for a product that not only contains hydrating components, but successfully locks in that much-needed moisture also. Behold the LJH Dr.’s Care BIO+N Barrier Cream. This incredible barrier cream will literally transform your skin, eradicating those pesky dry patches and returning your complexion to one of gorgeous vitality. I LOVE THIS!

3.Sunscreen: Try Biore UV AQUA Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+/PA ++++, £9.89, www.amazon.co.uk

We want a sunscreen to fully protect and boy, does this do a good job. Providing optimal protection against UV rays and being sweat and water-proof, the lightweight watery formula doesn’t feel like the sticky mess that is sun cream; thus, it melts straight into the skin and stays put!

Additionally, this amazing formula contains skin-loving hyaluronic acid, royal jelly extract and citrus mix – making it an unbelievable skincare product to boot!

I have been using this sunscreen for some considerable time and I have no intention of EVER running out!
