There are lots of ingredients that can be used undiluted or mixed with water as facial toners. You can also try mixing them with each other for a more interesting mix. Or add a few drops of an essential oil for skin care (remember to shake the bottle if using essential oils). Store in the fridge, and add to a cotton pad and swipe over your face. Alternatively, store in a spray bottle and spray over face and neck.
- Rose water, orange blossom water (can be found from the pharmacy or from oriental grocery shops). Or other aromatic waters, sometimes you can find peppermint or lavender water. Great for any skin type.
- Herbal infusions: Just boil 2 tsp of fresh herbs (1 tsp dried) in a cup (2 1/2 dl) of plain water for a while and pour the water into a bottle (making sure you don’t leave any herb traces in it, that makes it go off quicker). Suggestions: rosemary, basil, thyme or daisies. Or just use the leftovers from your tea (herbal or green). Suits any skin type.
- Cucumber juice: squeeze the water out of grated cucumber juice. Great for dry, sensitive or aging skin.
- Tomato juice: squeeze the juice out of a ripe tomato. Especially good for acne prone skin.
