DIY Toner

Seal in moisture and protect skin from the elements with this simple recipe that highlights key natural ingredients. Witch hazel, an herbal astringent, helps tighten skin and reduce redness, while a fragrant blend of clary sage, grapefruit, and German chamomile essential oils soothes irritation and prevents blemishes.

Use the toner, good for all skin types, on clean skin before applying your favorite moisturizer for a vibrant complexion all winter.

Hydrating Toner
Ingredients
1/4 cup tap water
1 tablespoon witch hazel
1/2 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
5 drops clary sage (Salvia sclarea) essential oil
5 drops grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) essential oil
5 drops German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) essential oil

Hydrating Toner How-To
Boil water rapidly for 3 minutes to sterilize, then let it cool. Combine all ingredients in a small (2- to 4-ounce) spray bottle and shake well to blend. To use, shake well and spray directly onto clean skin, or spray onto a cotton pad and apply. Follow with a skin-type-appropriate moisturizer. Store in a cool, dry place for up to two months.
