best toners for sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, you’re probably better off without toner.

The more products you add to your skincare routine, the more chances something will irritate your skin. Ugh.

Having said that, there are a handful of toners out there that can calm down irritations, reduce redness, and soothe your skin’s tantrums.

You just need to know where to look. Here are the best toners for sensitive skin (for when you feel like your skin needs the extra TLC):

Best Toner For Sensitive & Dry Skin: Paula’s Choice Calm Redness Relief Toner Normal To Dry ($21.00)

Paula’s Choice Calm Redness Relief line was created for sensitive skin so you can’t go wrong here. The Toner Normal To Dry Skin is free of alcohol, fragrance and anything else that can dry out your skin even more. Instead, it’s chockfull of skin-soothers like green tea and allantoin to calm down irritations, humectants like hyaluronic acid and glycerin to deeply hydrate your skin and fatty acids to strengthen your skin’s protective barrier. P.S. Most of the skin-soothers have antioxidants properties so they’re fighting wrinkles too.

Best Toner For Sensitive & Oily Skin: Paula’s Choice Calm Redness Relief Toner Normal To Oily ($21.00)

Paula’s Choice Redness Relief Toner Normal To Oily Skin is a watered down, more lightweight version of the Normal To Dry Skin formula. Out are the fatty acids and most of the humectants. Instead, it has even more skin-soothers, like colloidal oatmeal and green tea, that soothe inflammation and reduce redness (even the one associated with acne). It’s gentle enough even for acne and rosacea.
