DIY: Sarah's Facial Toner

Currently, I have dipped into the realm of organic beauty by creating my very own unique renditions of some of my favorite beauty products. Recently, I have find myself really embracing the "DIY" concept in more ways than one. I am 26 years old and always find myself examining what works best for me and my skin and what does not.

My skin is combination and tends to lean towards dry during the colder months (Fall and Winter) and oily during the hotter climates (Spring and Summer). If I use a product during the Winter, I don't like to use it during the Summer because my skin changes depending on my environment. In fact, my skin is the product of my environment. 

I have spent so much money on toning products, as my skin tends to suffer from sporadic breakouts. I don't want to destroy my skin's natural acid mantle, so I wanted to create my very own face toner. Something that is simple yet effective, which is why I want to share that with you today.

For this particular product, you will need a half of a cup of filtered water, one tablespoon of alcohol (preferably benzyl alcohol), one tablespoon of witch hazel, one tablespoon of organic rosehip oil, one tablespoon of organic lemon juice, and one teaspoon of Himalayan salt.

Combine all of the ingredients together until the salt is completely diluted. Then, using a container of choice, add the ingredients to it. It is crucial to avoid using products that won't hold nor carry the ingredients included in this facial toning product. 

Lastly, take a cotton ball or sterile applicator and apply the product generously on the skin. I like to use some sort of cotton-based pad as they tend to work the best. At least in my opinion. This facial toner is simple and works incredibly for every skin type under sun. And the best part is, it does not discriminate so everyone can use it. 

I hope my blog post today benefited you in some way, as I hope it helped you. Until the next time, take care of yourself and your skin. I'll see you soon. Have a wonderful day!
