A good facial toner is an essential element of a skincare regime, and toners are part of the traditional 3-step cleanse, tone and moisturise routine. At Nakin we are experts in natural anti-ageing skincare and our criteria for the best anti-ageing face toner is as below.
- It must be natural and made with the best plant actives
- It should be free from harsh ingredients like retinol
- It should be kind to skin and not throw it off balance
- It should be cleansing, refreshing and conditioning
- It should both resist and correct the signs of skin ageing
- It should be affordable to most
One of the special aspects about a toner is that they act as the final step in cleansing to remove the last traces of cleanser, give skin a second deep down cleanse, plus also tone and condition the skin. However, this needs to happen without drying the skin. A good toner will always to some extent provide skin with a mild tightening, but it should not leave skin feeling dry or stripped, as this will throw skin off balance. We know that some people associate that tight dry feeling after cleansing with thoroughly clean skin, however, this can put stress onto skin. Toners should also not be confused with micellar waters that are one product which cleanses and tones in one go, however, we do not recommend them as they can be irritating to skin.
When is comes to toners, we believe that Nakin’s Purifying Face Toner is the best toner for ageing skin and also resisting the signs of ageing. This is due to the amazing plant actives that it contains, as well as its ability to tone and condition skin without drying it out. Keeping skin balanced and hydrated is an important part of maintaining a youthful complexion. Our Purifying Face Toner works with all skin types, including sensitive skin to remove excess cleanser residue, tone and condition skin, plus make it ready for the actives applied afterwards. The subtle scented toner contains a combination of hyaluronic acid, seaweed, witch hazel and aloe that work together to cleanse, detox, tone and condition. It has a refreshing effect on skin while leaving it soft and supple. Some of the other great things that make this the best face toner is that it is great value at £15, as well as being a cruelty free toner that is made in the UK.
We should just say that this anti-ageing toner is not just for ageing skin. It is made for all ages as the kind natural actives are great for all skin, and Nakin’s range of anti-ageing skincare is as much about skin ageing prevention as it is about correction.
Use Nakin’s Natural Face Toner alongside our Natural Cleansing Milk for beautifully soft and clear skin. They sweep away pollution, grime and dead skin cells for smooth clear skin. Use them twice daily in the morning and evening, and follow with serum, oil and moisturiser. The toner is best applied with a cotton pad and being swept over the face and neck, then reverse the pad to the clean side and repeat. Remember to ensure that the whole face is reached, including those hard to miss areas like near the ears, lips and jawline.
