10 Toners That Won't Dry Out Your Skin

These serve as boosters for your skincare routine.

Some people veer away from using a toner because they assume that it will just dry out their skin. Toning is an essential skincare step, so skipping it may deprive you of its benefits. Doing so removes leftover dirt and preps your face for serums and moisturizers.

Thankfully, there are toners with moisturizing and cleansing formulas that can work even for oily skin! These products have the right ingredients and mostly with zero or less alcohol content. You can be sure that it can still purify pores without sucking out your complexion's natural moisture level.

TL;DR: A non-drying toner is your secret to glowing and clear skin. Sold? Check out our best picks below:
