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 start 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:
- small bottle, preferably glass (if you want to use it as a refresher, try a bottle with a spray top)
- alcohol-free witch hazel (I use this one)
- essential oil of your choice (I use Melrose blend from Young Living)
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 favorites for skincare are Melrose, Lavender, and Frankincense.
However, if you feel that making this face toner is not possible for you because you lack the time or ingredients, don’t worry! You can go online, and order a good toner, or any other skincare product for that matter, from sites like Kiana Beauty and similar others. Just because you can’t make a good skincare product, that shouldn’t stop you from getting it elsewhere.
As for me, I have been using this DIY face toner 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 make 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?
