How Natural Toners Hydrate Your Skin
Daily use of a natural toner can hydrate skin and give you a more youthful glowPosted on March 22, 2023 Written by: 100% PURE ®
Have all those summer beach trips got your skin feeling a little dry like sand, instead of dewy and refreshed like an ocean mist? An unfortunate side effect of sunshine and tan skin can be dryness, especially for those of us with skin that’s already naturally dry. What’s the perfect remedy for dryness?
First, consistent water intake is key. Next, add a hydrating toner to your daily routine (and SPF)!
Your toner (and skin care) should contain natural and organic ingredients for maximum nourishment. Now, you might be thinking, “what, now I have to add another product to my routine?” But try hearing us out! Once you get the scoop on hydrating skin with a toner, you’ll be off like a sea breeze to quickly add one to your skincare routine!
You’re probably familiar with the conventional and harsh chemical toners advertised for oily and acne-prone skin. These types of toners, while able to provide an instant - but short-term - desired result, are NOT good for dry skin. They’ll make dry skin worse by stripping the skin’s protective barrier of moisture and any natural oils and causing irritation or breakouts.
The type of toner that’s great for dry skin will gently sweep away any remaining dirt, debris, and makeup after cleansing the skin. For skin that’s behaving unpredictably or feeling very dry, a natural toner acts as the first burst of hydration after cleansing the skin and can be a game-changer in your skincare routine.
A natural toner promotes balance by infusing moisture into skin and preserving the skin’s natural barrier. Some of your skin care products might be leaving residue behind in your pores, preventing skin from fully absorbing the nutrients and actives from your products. Adding a natural toner can fully cleanse and balance your skin, and maximize the performance of your skincare to reveal the glowing goddess that you are!
So, what ingredients should your toner have to make a positive impact on skin? 100% PURE toners feature humectants, plant gels, and other quality hydrating components. This means they’ll restore skin and sustain hydration, rather than just providing a temporary splash of water to dry skin.
Check out the ingredient breakdown of our natural toners, and learn how they work well for dry skin.
Despite a somewhat scary name, this carbohydrate molecule can actually be found in the human body (primarily in the joints to keep us loose and limber). Hyaluronic acid is a super liquid that can retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Vegan sources of hyaluronic acid are both Japanese sweet potatoes and seaweed.
100% PURE Restorative Sea Culture Hydrating Toner
Featuring a protein-rich and super hydrating base of chia seed water, this aquatic-inspired toner helps soothe even the most reactive skin. Superstar ingredient hyaluronic acid pulls water into the skin and locks it in there. This hydration hero amplifies the moisturizing power of the other hydrating ingredients in this toner.
Organic glycerin, moisture-locking algae, and nutrient-rich sea kelp join forces with a soothing blend of florals and essential oils. Love it morning, night, and any time in between. Using this vegan toner means you’re just a splash away from improved skin, especially dry skin.

Bring a little deep-sea magic to your skincare routine with this nutritious, mineral-rich ingredient. Seaweed is rich in vitamins A, C, and calcium. It helps to brighten the skin for a mermaid-like glow. We source our seaweed from unpolluted waters, which makes its hydration, inflammation-reducing, and anti-aging benefits more powerful.
Did you know this moisturizing ingredient is already a part of our bodies and is naturally found in human skin? Sodium PCA is one of a few key components that contribute to healthy, hydrated-looking, and feeling skin.
We love this ingredient as a natural and cruelty-free humectant. This product is lightweight and seals the skin for longer-lasting hydration. Glycerin also helps to fight many skin conditions such as excessive dryness and helps with aging concerns like fine lines and wrinkles.
100% PURE Fermented Rice Water Toner
Looking for a little more oomph from your toner? While created for all skin types, this toner also packs a huge punch of citrus powers to liven up dull or lackluster skin. This all-star formula also features sake, a gentle yet powerful brightening agent. Sake also contributes some moisturizing properties to promote skin hydration and plumping.
Organic glycerin seals in all the hydration goodness, and locks in the skin-moistening effects of sodium PCA as well as sodium hyaluronate, which is a form of hyaluronic acid that attracts moisture. Sodium hyaluronate is naturally found in the body (primarily the joints and eyes) and acts as a humectant and a binding ingredient for collagen.
Sodium hyaluronate and hyaluronic acid are often used interchangeably on 100% PURE product labels. These ingredients essentially function the same way and are similarly sourced, so you’ll get all the H-acid power with a slightly more complicated name.
Tea Tree Oil:
You may have heard that tea tree oil is suitable for oily and acne-prone. This superstar ingredient has mega antimicrobial and antiseptic properties to remove impurities from the skin for a clear and refreshed complexion. But tea tree oil also moisturizes skin! That’s right – it helps to balance oil and water ratios on your skin for a clear complexion.
Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent
Regardless of whether you have dry or oily skin or a combination of both, your skin needs both moisture from oil and hydration from water to maintain a healthy balance. Excess oil sitting on top of your skin can be a symptom of skin that needs more moisturizing because your skin is trying to compensate by producing too much!
Tea tree oil is an effective natural moisturizer and is what makes our toner such an effective cleanser that doesn’t strip or dehydrate skin. Rosemary, parsley, and witch hazel give this toner potent skin-balancing power for a soothed, softened complexion.
This soothing face toner uses rose water and other floral hydrosols like calendula hydrosol to quench thirsty skin cells and reduce redness. Rose water has a pH level that falls within the ideal range for healthy skin, so its application helps get your skin balance back to normal after a deep cleanse.
Botanical-based hyaluronic acid hydrates while delivering nutrients deep into the skin. This formula is alcohol-free and contains organic witch hazel instead to purify your pores. This formula helps to balance excess oil production for skin that’s bouncy and glowy, without getting greasy or dried out.
Gone are the days when lavender was nothing more than grandma’s secret weapon for freshening up the powder room. From milk tea to marshmallows, cleansers to masks, it’s safe to say that this singular purple bloom is bigger than ever – and has been hailed a hero in the skincare world.
Lavender oil not only boosts potent anti-inflammatory properties but is also ultra-soothing for skin with a therapeutic scent. If you’ve been itching away at dry skin with no hope in sight, turn to lavender oil for some much-needed relief. It does a stellar job of balancing your skin’s moisture barrier so that it isn’t too oily or too dry.
Lavender Niacinamide Pore Minimizer Tonique
With its stellar reputation as a skin hero, it’s no wonder why we feature lavender oil in several of our toners! This pore-minimizing tonique deep cleans and purifies facial pores while lessening their appearance without stripping or dehydrating the skin.
This hydrating formula features niacinamide, which evens skin tone while firming the skin. The addition of lavender hydrosol refreshes and soothes, while witch hazel balances oil production and reduces inflammation. This toner is the perfect blend for achieving that flawless, glowing skin!
Never miss a chance to refresh your skin even on the go with a spritz of our refreshing spray toner. Made with a blend of gentle botanicals that work to purify, hydrate, and soften skin, this tonique cleans and detoxifies pores while moisturizing your complexion.
Calming lavender soothes stressed skin, while aloe heals skin that is inflamed or irritated. DMAE firms, lifts, and lessens lines and wrinkles. MSM is an organic sulfur found in vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts, which is known to promote a smooth, youthful complexion.
We knew this elegant bloom was more than just a declaration of love. It’s also an amazing skincare ingredient known for its hydrating, skin-soothing benefits. This made it all too perfect to feature in not only a face toner but a few other rosy companions that are sure to have you blushing!
Go beyond your average rose water mist with a super-boosted formula featuring hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and white tea for a super-kiss of hydration. With its aromatic rose fragrance, this face mist offers additional support to reduce redness and condition the skin, plus the addition of hyaluronic acid supports a plumped youthful glow.
Watermelon Cucumber Water Locking Mist
Our ultra-hydrating water mist naturally reinvigorates dehydrated skin cells and reduces signs of aging by locking in cactus juice, watermelon hydrosol, and hyaluronic acid. It also contains olive squalene, which is a cruelty-free, plant-based alternative to squalene harvested from sharks.
Squalene is a naturally occurring antioxidant compound that is found in varying amounts in both animal and plant sources. It is classified as a triterpene hydrocarbon (highly unsaturated) and is a natural lipid that is a major intermediate in the biosynthesis of cholesterol in the liver.
In nature, the highest levels of squalene can be found among olives, sharks, liver oil, wheat germ, and rice bran. The main animal source of squalene is sourced from certain deep-sea shark varieties.
Olive squalene can help repair dry, rough skin by moisturizing and softening it while also soothing redness or irritation caused by sensitive skin. It leaves you with a moisturized yet non-greasy feel - perfect for everyday use!
Ready to truly quench your skin? After cleansing and rinsing, make sure skin is still slightly damp. Using clean hands, pump your toner of choice into the well of your palm and press into the skin for an instant hydrated effect. If splashing isn’t your style, pump onto a cotton pad and sweep across the face, neck, and décolleté.
We hope you’ve learned a tone of useful tips about using natural face toners for hydrated, plumper, brighter skin. Happy hydrating!
