D.I.Y Cucumber/Aloe Toner

I like to call this toner, the rescuer…with calming ingredients such as cucumber and healing agent aloe vera gel…you can’t go wrong and your skin will be at peaceJ …works well for all skin types. Cucumber is great for soothing and softening skin because it has the same pH as healthy skin. If you’ve had a long night out—eating and drinking [soda's or alcohol] plus lack of shut eye…this recipe will be your beauty hero.

What you'll Need:

  • 1/2 cucumber with peel, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons witch hazel
  • 2 tablespoons distilled water
  • 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel

What you're gonna do:

Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve or cheese cloth to remove all of the solids, then pour the toner into a clean bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Store this toner in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life—it should last for a few weeks.

To use, apply the toner to clean face using a clean cotton ball.

Have a great day!
