Top 3 Pregnancy-Safe Toners

Toner is probably the most overlooked step of the beauty routine. "I already washed my face, so what’s the fuss about?” Well, let us be the ones to tell you that the proper toner will detoxify the pores of impurities while simultaneously filling them with moisture and nutrients to plump and refine your skin, leaving you fresh and dewy. Plus, our favorite toners can do double duty as fabulously refreshing face mists. Sold? Great, but not so fast—not all toners are made alike. With opening up your pores in this way, we think it is particularly important that your toner is non-toxic so it’s extra pregnancy-safe. We have tested the market to hone in on toners that deliver the most noticeable, ultra glowing results that are also squeaky clean for you and baby.

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner

Why we love it:

Chock full of hyaluronic acid and CoQ-10, this toner packs a one-two punch of the “it” skincare ingredients for glowing, hydrated skin. Ideal for dry climates, traveling or parched skin, use morning and night on a cotton pad before your serum, after cleansing, and throughout the day for a pick me up of refreshing moisture. This toner also has a clean scent that makes you feel like you’re taking a splash, while delivering potent hydration to your thirsty skin.


Laurel Whole Plant Organics Facial Elixir

Why we love it:

This toner is perfect for those of us whose skin isn’t exactly glowing as promised. It restores your dull, dry skin, while detoxifying clogged pores and treating fine lines and wrinkles. It truly is a miracle product when battling the hormonal woes of pregnancy, reducing redness and removing dead skin cells to reveal the pregnancy glow that we all long for. Use as a powerful toner, but also for a refreshing post workout spritz to look dewy and taut in a flash. 


Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator

Why we love it:

The Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator is one of the most highly praised toners on the market. This toner claims to literally loosen and open up your skin in order to absorb all of the goodness of the product and the rest of your beauty routine, allowing your fine lines and wrinkles to fill up, plumpen, and fade. As if optimizing the rest of your beauty routine isn’t enough incentive, keep Josh in your purse for bursts of hydration throughout the day.
