Oily skin

If you suffer with oily skin, you want a toner that absorbs any excess and rebalances your skin. Look for a toner that gently exfoliates, as this will get rid of dead surface skin cells and help you achieve clearer skin.

Dry skin

If dry skin is your biggest beauty bug bear, then you need a toner that’ll deeply rehydrate and refresh your skin and prepare it for absorption of moisturiser, so that you get the most out of it.

Ageing skin

If your main concern is the appearance of ageing, then you want a toner that will deeply moisturise as well as rebalancing your skin. Look for moisturising ingredients such as almond oil or honey as your first port of call.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skinned girls will need to be fairly careful about what they put on their skin, so you’ll need to seek out the most gentle toner you can find. Look for something that’s alcohol free with natural ingredients and you’re well on your way.
