Natural Skin Care ~ ACV Toner

I have been using a wonderful Natural Toner these days! I really love the way my skin feels after using it. This is a wonderful follow up to The Oil Cleansing Method.  I am happy to say that I make this myself so not only do I know EXACTLY whats in it, but its virtually free compared to the prices of many commercial facial toners.  All of the ingredients in this recipe serve a specific purpose for my own skin & demographics.  I encourage you to play around with it to develop your own concoction.  It is achievable.

Natural Skin Toner

2 oz Apple Cider Vinegar
6 oz Water
6 drops Tea Tree Oil
4 drops of Peppermint Oil

Apply with a cotton ball after cleansing daily and allow it to dry before applying a moisturizer. (I use it following Oil Cleansing) Can also be used in between cleansings.

Apple Cider Vinegar helps to soften my hard water by lowering the PH level which balances it for my skin. It also appears to assist with tightening the pores and with fading blemishes.
Tea Tree Oil is an astringent, antibacterial it cleanses the skin, soothes inflammation
Peppermint Oil makes my skin feel cool & tingly.  I have also read that it helps to control oil by decreasing its production.

  1. Hey, I went out and got some additional ingredients for my oil cleansing trial. I was wondering after using your ACV toner, or cleansing in general what are you using for a moisturizer?
