Homemade toner using apple cider vinegar
This is a great way to save on money that you’d otherwise spend on buying toner and acne topical medication. I use, and I advocate the use of apple cider vinegar as a toner. Don’t use it neat no matter how thick you think your skin is. Someone reported that they tried it and “burnt” their skin. Remember, this is a vinegar, and its acidic.
Use Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. Its unfiltered which works best.
I used to just mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 part of boiled or distilled water. If you find that too strong, you can dilute it even further. Then, keep it in a glass bottle. An old jam jar or any small bottle lying around the house can be used.
If you want to kill the smell further, try mixing 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 part green tea. Let the tea cool first. I prefer this concoction now because I think the green tea seems to help improve my skin too.
It clears the skin of spots and prevents them, as I have advocated in my beauty blog twice thus far. How does this save you money?
A large bottle will last you a long long time – years maybe, if all you are using it for is making toner. A box of green tea is similarly cheap. If you make a batch of toner every week, 1 box will last you a year. You get a year’s worth of toner which is chemical and preservative free, and works a treat!!
