DIY Facial Toner
Updated: Dec 16, 2020
After using so many creams and lotions over the years, it has been wonderful to simplify my routine and allow my face to return to its more natural state. One of the changes I made was in my facial toner. I love being able to put on a nice, cool spray right before I crawl into bed. For a while I bought high-priced toners that had ingredient lists I couldn’t even read. But then I switched to something so much simpler!
Apple cider vinegar facial toner is the easiest toner to make and is so much cheaper!
Before I completely sell you on it though, let’s get honest for a minute. ACV works wonders for your skin but all of us know that vinegar packs a hefty punch. Especially in the smell department. My boyfriend is not the biggest fan of this toner strictly because of the smell. But don’t be discouraged! The smell does dissipate and if you use a scented lotion at night, it easily covers up the smell.

Apple Cider Vinegar
The trick is to mix the vinegar and water in a 1:2-4 ratio. Make sure never to use just straight ACV as that can create a burning sensation and do more harm than good. I currently use a 1:2 ratio (1 part ACV to 2 parts water) but I apply it in a mist format. When you first start off using it, use a high ratio (1:4) until you know that you skin reacts well to it.
And that’s it! Let your face enjoy a fresh start each day!
