It has been HOT, HOT, HOT in PA – so I wanted to share a DIY product that is refreshing and great for these hot, humid months when your skin is less than cooperative – sweaty, greasy, and you breakout even if you normally have clear skin.
This week’s product is an astringent, which is similar to a toner. The purpose of an astringent is to remove cleanser residue, balance pH, and remove excess oil.
This specific DIY product is cooling, has a fresh scent and can be kept chilled, making it super refreshing! It can be used on the face as well as on the body (underarms, legs, bikini line) after shaving to prevent ingrown hairs.
I recommend this product to those of you with normal, oily, acne-prone or combination skin! It is not for dry skin (because of the alcohol content) - but seriously, who has dry skin in the middle of summer?
Vodka acts as a natural astringent or toner, and due to its disinfectant properties, it can deep-clean your pores. (Just be sure to dilute it with at least equal parts witch hazel or water first.) It'll also tighten the skin on your face and can calm acne breakouts with it's drying and detoxifying properties.
Below are a two additional articles highlighting the beauty benefits of vodka for skin and hair. As with anything you put on your skin: test, test, test it for yourself.
