Basically, it’s a vital part of a good skincare routine.
Facial toner is very essential in your skincare ritual, not only does it help clean off dirt (which your cleanser might have missed) but also shrink large pores, get rid of grime and gunk in the pores, target acne, soothe redness and balance the skin pH level. By so doing improving overall skin tone and texture.
Unfortunately, like most store-bought beauty products, tons are known to contain harsh chemicals, hormone disruptors and skin irritants which makes up the ingredient lists of most facial toners. And these store-bought are usually very pricey, which may not be suitable for everyone’s budget. Therefore making your own DIY facial toner at-home happens to be one of the most inexpensive DIY beauty recipes to try.
