Homemade Toner

While the secret for a beautiful skin happens mostly internally with a healthy balanced diet, It ‘s also really important to choose beneficial external skin care products. Toners were originally devised as an extra cleansing step to remove dirt and impurities from makeup and environmental pollution. I am really picky when it comes to choosing what’s best for my skin, so most of the time I prefer making my own with 100% natural ingredients. This amazing and easy homemade toner will leave your skin feel softer and balanced. It’s great for sensitive skin due to the soothing properties of rose water and cucumber. I use it every morning after my homemade face wash  ( FIND THE RECIPE HERE ) and have seen great result in my skin tone and elasticity.

I choose the most purest ingredients and use high grade essential oils in all my beauty recipes. The ancient civilizations used lots of oils in their beauty routine especially the Egyptian. Who doesn’t know about Cleopatra’s beauty routine ?! It’s pretty common in my culture to involve her secrets when making beauty products. My mom use to make a lavender soap that she says was inspired by cleopatra’s beauty ritual. Get pure essential oils here.

I used two great essential oils in this recipe

  • Geranium Essential Oil has a sweet, floral fragrance that calms and relaxes the body and mind. It has been used back to the times of the Egyptians for promoting and supporting beautiful healthy skin.
