Easy DIY face toner and refresher

Easy diy face toner and refresher juicygreenmom

I have to be honest, I stopped using toner when I had a baby – out of sheer laziness. When I started learning about essential oils that could benefit my skin, I decided to revamp┬ástart my facial skincare routine. I have found a DIY face wash I love by Sherri from Overthrow Martha, so I decided to make my own easy DIY face toner to complement it.

What you need:

I used a 4ml glass vial, filled it with the witch hazel, then added 1-2 drops of Melrose essential oil. If you’re using a 2 oz bottle (60 ml), I would add 10-15 drops of essential oil. Shake it well before each use so the oil is dispersed. You can use any essential oil of your choice – my favourites for skin care are Melrose, Lavender, and Frankincense.

I have been using this after washing my face, as well as during the day when I’m feeling I need some refreshing. My skin tends to get oily when I’m at work, where the air seems more dry, so a few spritzes of this makes it feel much better. Also, in combination with the face wash, it cleared up a rash I had in just a few days (woohoo!).

This is my full DIY Face Care system for under $30.

So easy, right? What do you use as a face toner or refresher?

    • Hmm, interesting. This seems to be talking about traditional witch hazel, though – the one I use is alcohol-free, and also has aloe added to it. On the EWG Skin Deep database, it has a score of 2 (low hazard).
      Also I’ve been a bit confused by the Paula’s Choice brand because she talks about making sure everything is non-toxic, however some of the ingredients in her products are red flags for me. For example, PEG-100 Stearate (a 3 on the Skin Deep database, in the moderate hazard category) is an ingredient in her Retinol Body Lotion, and I avoid anything with PEG ingredients because they can contain harmful impurities. She also uses dimethicone, which is also a 3, and while it is only a moderate hazard to humans, it is a huge hazard for ocean life.
      I couldn’t get a rating on the Retinol Body Lotion in the Skin Deep database, but Paula’s Choice RESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum (anti-aging) has a score of 4 – moderate hazard.

  1. Toner is very important for skin care. Ice is a best toner for ever. Natural elements are safe for toning for skin. I always prefer natural products for skin care.
