Since I started using my homemade natural products on my face I feel like I’m fighting against time. I used to buy expensive cosmetic products to keep my wrinkles under control, which as you know is futile. Now I am in the phase where I stopped spending a fortune on branded items. I’m trying to apply what I feel is right for my face instead. Believe it or not, I don’t see any new wrinkles developing on my face anymore, although my eyesight is getting worse so that may also be why 🙂
Anyway, what I was going to say is that by using natural products you are not only helping your skin but also your wallet. Free of any chemicals, conventional astringents, fragrances or parabens this natural facial toner is suitable for all kinds of skin including the sensitive one.
Do I need a facial toner?
Toners have recently become an integral part of everyday hygiene. They are liquid moisturizers packed with antioxidants. These are nti-inflammatory agents and exfoliants are applied after the cleansing and before you apply night cream or serum. Toners penetrate the skin and
- help bind moisture to the skin
- remove dead skin cells
- clear clogged pores and shrink them
- make your skin clean, hydrated and ready to accept the healthy benefits of the following skin product you apply
- restore your pH
How does skin toner work?
It is important to keep the pH of your skin around 5.5, which is a slightly acidic environment. This acid mantle, a mixture of sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells protects us from pollutants and keeps us bacteria free. Disturbing this barrier can cause disorders like dermatitis, acne or candida infections. The pH of our skin is delicate and easily disrupted. Stress, diet, lack of exercise or simply just luck of fluids are all factors. Cleansers tend to be alkaline and when applied the skin tends to overproduce oil in order to restore its original pH.
Natural facial toner, when applied after the cleansing, helps us restore the pH of our skin and keep our skin healthy.
Rose water is our star ingredient in this product. Made of rose petals and distilled water, rose water is best known for its soothing, refreshing and hydrating effects on the skin. A rich source of antioxidants, rose water strengthens skin cells and regenerates skin tissue.
Witch hazel (a flowering shrub from the plant Hammamelis virginiana) soothes and strengthens tired skin. Its astringent effects help regulate grease production, reduce pores, tighten and soften the skin to create its youthful appearance. Make sure to buy alcohol-free witch hazel as even a small amount of alcohol, if regularly applied can generate free-radical damage and damage the skin.
Astringent effect of aloe vera soothes, heals and rejuvenates your skin. it contains antioxidants like vitamin E, C and beta carotene that help improve the elasticity of the skin, hydrate the skin and fight wrinkles. aloe vera stimulates the growth of new cells and allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring.
Made by a simple fermentation of apple juice, apple cider vinegar preserves the beneficial effects of apples. Additionally, it contains enzymes resulting from fermentation. Antibacterial and antiseptic properties of apple cider vinegar helps remove bacteria-forming dead skin as well as fighting acne, eczema or skin infections.
Chamomile is an excellent soothing agent in the toner.
Rose and aloe vera facial toner, made of natural ingredients, balances the natural pH of the skin. Freshens and removes traces of oil or make up, keeps the skin pores open by breaking up the bonds between dead cells. Lightens up the age spots and helps improve acne.
How to apply?
Clean your face from makeup with a pure cleanser, I use coconut oil. Then spray the toner onto your face or apply with pads all over your face. Finish the process with moisturizing cream. I use this homemade one
How to store it?
Store it in the refrigerator. Thanks to apple cider vinegar which acts as a preservative this Rose and aloe vera facial toner can last up to 20 days.
