The second step of the routine is toning - that is, using a toner
or astringent applied to a cotton pad or ball to remove
any last traces of soap, makeup, oil, and grime.
Some useful recipies for homemade toners include the following:
Chamomile facial toner:
If you would like to have a very mild toner, try chamomile herbal tea.
Put 1 tea bag into 100ml boiling water, remove the bag after 5 minutes.
Apply on the face with a cotton ball. ( Don't rinse. )
Apple and honey facial toner:
In blender, puree 1 tablespoon honey with a peeled, cored apple.
Let it stay for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Lemon and honey toner:
Mix 1 teaspoon vegetable oil with 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tsp honey.
Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
Apply 1 tablespoon of limejuice over your face, leave on 10 minutes and rinse off.
Apple cider vinegar toner:
Mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water.
Apply on your face with a cotton ball.
Leave on 10 minutes and rinse with cold water.
