Lots of people still (mistakenly) think that toners are unnecessary frou-frou, but they're especially vital when it comes to the colder months. Enjoying your winter skincare routine is similar to enjoying your winter evening walks--it's all about the layers. Toners prep your skin for the layers of moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup that are yet to come, and finding a refreshing, inoffensive and yet moisturizing candidate is often the key to keeping sensitive skin satisfied. Splashes of water and witch hazel are simply not enough; the toners that keep skin supple are the ones that focus on nourishing more than simply refreshing.
For some serious winter nourishment, reach for the Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Facial Water ($28). It harnesses the power of cucumber to cool and soothe alongside calming chamomile for a wholly hydrating and all-around nurturing facial mist. Pop this bottle in your purse for some midday nourishment, especially on those days when the temps are dipping well below freezing.
