Facial toners are by far my favorite beauty product. They have minimal ingredients with amazing benefits (if you find the right ones). Luckily I found a great recipe in the book Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin.
Here are the benefits you can get from this facial toner:
THE MINT IN THE TEA IS CALMING + COOLING
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR BALANCES PH–which keeps your skin from being too oily or too dry.
ANTI-BACTERIAL + DEEP CLEANING– this helps zap zits! If the tea didn’t make the toner a dark color, you would see more dirt come off onto your cotton swab, even after cleansing your face!
BRIGHTENING–removes the dull cells from your skin, leaving an “I just got a facial” glow.
TEA MINIMIZES PORES–and is said to also eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
Still don’t believe me when I say this stuff works miracles? Then scroll down and try it for yourself!
NOTE: IF YOUR SKIN GETS IRRITATED AFTER A
WHILE, USE THIS TONER LESS FREQUENTLY.
KEEP AWAY FROM EYE AREA.
