Like most skincare products, facial toners aren’t formulated with a one-size-fits-all approach. While commonly known for its ability to remedy dehydrated skin, toners are varied and can help target different skin concerns from acne to oiliness. Going the extra mile and adding this step to your skincare routine can make a real and visible difference in the skin’s moisture levels — that is if you’re using the right formula for your skin type.

Traditionally, toners used to be very drying due to the alcohol and astringents that remove oil from the skin. Newer astringents used in many of today’s formulas are meant to prep your skin to receive active ingredients, by restoring the skin’s natural acidic state and adding hydration to improve penetration of such ingredients. It’s also vital to avoid toners with alcohol, as the additive can contribute to a compromised moisture barrier and dry the skin even further.

Navigating all the toner options on the market can be overwhelming, so we’ve done the work for you. Read on for five of the best hydrating toners for dry and flaky skin.
