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.
Restore pH balance.
Unblock and refine pore size.
This is one outstanding and very affordable toner.
