Happy Wednesday \u0026amp; our first DIY recipe for June!\nHow many of you use a toner as a part of your daily skincare routine?\nHow many of you know what it does and\/or its benefits?\nToday I am going to share why a toner is important and the benefits it has for your skin! I will also share a natural, cost-effective DIY toner recipe that can easily be incorporated into your routine TODAY!\nWhat is the point of using a toner?\nA toner is used after facial cleansing and before a moisturizer. A toner’s purpose is to\n\nremove excess dirt and traces of oil and makeup,\ncorrect and balance the pH of your skin,\nand help control acne.\n\nA lot of store-bought toners have harsh chemicals (that frankly, I cannot even pronounce) that are NOT what you want to put on your skin and can have adverse effects. Luckily, the natural benefits of apple cider vinegar make it a wonderful ingredient for an all-natural toner that is great for all skin types.\nAlthough ACV is acidic, it helps to regulate the pH balance of the skin. It’s an excellent DIY facial toner and can be used for all skin types. It’s also antibacterial and has anti-inflammatory properties. For oily and acne-prone skin, ACV helps to treat acne and reduce redness. For dry and normal skin, ACV helps to exfoliate skin and reduce wrinkles.\nIngredients for ACV natural face toner:\nnormal to dry skin\n\n1\/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar\n2\/3 cup filtered water \nAdd 5 drops each of Lavender and Frankincense essential oils (or your favorite essential oils for the skin)\n\nOily or acne-prone \n\n1\/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar\n1\/2 cup filtered water \nAdd 5 drops each of Lavender and Frankincense essential oils (or your favorite essential oils for the skin)\n\nHow to Make It:\n\nCombine all ingredients in a glass jar and mix well.
