*Review of the best according to the editorial board. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to purchase. Consultation with a specialist is necessary before purchase.

Cosmetic toner is often confused with skin toner. But although the names are consonant, they have completely different meanings, and the cosmetic products themselves have different functionality. We tell you about the basic functions of toner and criteria for its choice. We have also compiled a rating of the best products by well-known manufacturers of cosmetics, so that you can choose the most suitable care products for you.

How to choose a toner for your face?

Toner for the face, unlike toner, is not only designed to cleanse the skin from the accumulation of dust and subcutaneous fat particles. Cosmetic product has the following properties:

  1. normalize the pH level of the skin;
  2. preservation of moisture in the cells of the epidermis;
  3. Eliminating and preventing the feeling of tightness;
  4. anti-irritation, flaking and hyperemia of the skin.

The toner can be used as a preparatory care for the epidermis before the application of other cosmetics. It acts as a conductor, aiding in better absorption of foundation or makeup base.

We advise you to look at the following criteria when choosing a facial toner, based on the recommendations of cosmetologists:

  1. Age.Cosmetic products, just like treatment creams or serums, are available for women of different ages. Consequently, the composition of the product and the concentration of the active ingredients vary. Buy the right product for your age range because it contains exactly what your dermis needs.
  2. Skin type.For dry, irritated and flaky skin, products with moisturising properties are particularly suitable. For oily and problematic epidermis, it is better to buy products that have a slight drying effect. In addition, it can regulate sebum activity by reducing the intensity of sebum production. There are also universal toners which can be used regardless of skin type.
  3. A problem that needs to be solved.Repairing and soothing toners are suitable for flabby, weak, damaged and sensitive skin. Anti-inflammatory products fight redness, burning and microcracks on the face. To eliminate oily shine we recommend using sebum-regulating cosmetic products. Acid toners are available to lighten age spots and rejuvenate the epidermis.
  4. Try to avoid buying products from little-known companies just because of their low cost. A toner is one that will come in direct contact with your skin, so saving too much money here is inappropriate. And truly quality, safe cosmetics cannot be undervalued.
