Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. While there are many commercial products available to treat acne, they can be expensive and filled with harsh chemicals. If you’re looking for a more natural option, you can make your own acne toner at home. This homemade toner is made with apple cider vinegar, which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also gentle on the skin and won’t strip away its natural oils. In this article, we’ll show you how to make a natural acne toner that works.
Gather your ingredients
Let’s start by gathering all the ingredients you’ll need to make this homemade toner. You’ll need: - Apple cider vinegar - 1 cup - Distilled water - 1 cup - A glass bottle - 1 - Essential oils - 3 drops
Mix the apple cider vinegar and water
The first thing you’ll want to do is mix the apple cider vinegar and water. Start with 1 cup of vinegar and pour it into a measuring cup. Next, add 1 cup of water. Mix these ingredients together using a fork or spoon until they’re thoroughly combined.
Add the essential oils
Next, add the essential oils. For best results, choose one or a combination of these oils: - Lemongrass oil - This oil is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It also smells amazing and is great for acne-prone skin! - Tea tree oil - Tea tree oil is a powerful antiseptic and antifungal oil. It’s especially good for acne that’s caused by bacteria. - Sandalwood oil - This oil is a great choice for sensitive skin because it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. It’s also moisturizing and smells wonderful! - Peppermint oil - Peppermint oil is a natural astringent that reduces redness and irritation. It’s also a good choice for acne-prone skin. - Rose oil - Rose oil is anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. It also smells amazing and is a good choice for acne-prone skin.
Pour the toner into a clean, dry bottle
Next, pour the vinegar-water mixture into a clean, dry bottle. Make sure the bottle is clean and dry to prevent bacteria from growing in your toner. The best bottle to use is a 16-ounce amber glass bottle. Make sure to clean and thoroughly dry the bottle before adding the toner.
Apply the toner to your face
Now you’re ready to apply the toner to your face. You can use it as a toner after cleansing and before applying your moisturizer or as a daily face wash. For best results, apply the toner with a cotton pad. Simply pour a little of the toner into a cotton pad and gently rub it onto your face. You’ll notice the cotton pad will start to turn a dark brown as it removes dirt and impurities from your skin. You can also pour a little toner into a clean bowl or container and use a facial sponge to apply it to your face. This is great for people with sensitive skin who prefer not to apply the toner directly to their face.
Store the toner in a cool, dark place
Once you’ve used up all the toner, you’ll want to store it in a cool, dark place. Natural ingredients can sometimes react to heat and light, which is why it’s important to store the toner in a cool, dark place. A cabinet or pantry is a good place to store the toner.
