If you have ultra-dry skin, I hate to say it, but it might be time to add another step to your skincare routine. I know that's the last thing you want to do, but hear me out for a second. For anyone out there who struggles with rough, bumpy texture and dryness, a good hydrating toner can be a real lifesaver. Even if you have oily or acne-prone skin, a toner that adds moisture is still a good idea to use because it can help balance your skin's oil levels resulting in fewer breakouts. So basically, it's a win-win for all skin types.

If dryness is your main concern, though, look for moisturizing and soothing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or honey. Both are known for their moisture-locking properties and can leave your skin feeling ultra-smooth. To get you started, I've rounded up the best hydrating toners below to add to your routine. Keep scrolling and find the one that's right for you.
