Skin Type & Choosing a Toner
Which toner is best for you?
Normal skin & combination skin:
Choose toners containing the IQ co-enzyme which works as a powerful antioxidant for the skin, and helps hydrate the skin to give it a soft, replenished look. Try the NIVEA Daily Essentials Refreshing Toner.
Look for a toner with skin-calming botanicals to provide relief to irritated skin - Aloe Vera is an excellent example of this due to it's soothing qualities. Ingredients such as algae are also beneficial for sensitive skin as they contain amino acids, which help to remove toxins from the skin. The soothing properties of Aloe Vera stretch beyond face care - Aloe Vera can be found in the NIVEA Indulgent Moisture Star Fruit Shower Cream and this can be used to soothe other parts of the body that may be irritated and need some TLC.
The best toner's to use if you have dry skin contain fermented yeast extract and amino acids, which deeply hydrate the skin and help to lock in moisture helping your skin to look replenished and healthy. Fermented yeast is especially useful for those with dry skin as it helps to break down the active ingredients to aid the absorption of the nutrients and minerals into the skin. This process makes the ingredients overall much more rich in antioxidants and amino acids.
Toners are great at removing excess oils from the face if you have acne-prone skin, salicylic acid is an ingredient you should look for as it gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, unclogs pores and also contains antibacterial properties.
Toners for oily skin contain clay which helps to purify the skin and control shine, a common issue for those with oily skin. The NIVEA 1 Minute Urban Detox Mask Purify would be the perfect accompaniment to a clay based toner for oily skin.
If you have mature skin it's important to use toners with soothing non-abrasive ingredients, such as Aloe Vera. Vitamin C is also a beneficial ingredient due to its antioxidant properties which help to protect the skin and combat aging.
