    Somewhere in the depths of our beauty cabinet lies a product that rarely sees the light of day. Toner seemed like something we should own, so we bought it (and immediately proceeded to ignore it). But, little did we know that toner is actually one of the most underrated skin-care solutions around — when used properly, toner can effectively both balance and moisturize the skin. Could toner be the answer to our winter skin woes?

    The answer is a resounding, if not slightly surprising, yes. Though fear of flakiness was the source of much of our trepidation, turns out most toners actually have the opposite effect, leaving skin plump, hydrated, and all around healthy. Essentially, toner works as a protective barrier that restores and protects skin — and if there's one time of year we're in need of a little extra boost, it's definitely now.

    So, click through to peruse our top picks for cold weather toners — and prepare to meet the new MVP of your skin-care routine.
