DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Facial Toner Ingredients: Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar Distilied water Optional: Brewed herbal tea Hydrosols (Like rose or lavender) Essential oils (Like lavender oil or tea tree oil) Directions: For sensitive skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water For normal skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 2 parts water For oily skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 part water Special note: No matter what your skin type is, do a patch test on your skin to see how it reacts with the “sensitive skin” ratio. I also recommend using this ratio FIRST before increasing the amount of apple cider vinegar you use. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the ratio to find whats best for you skin. Overtime, if you feel the solution seems to be too “weak” – slowly increase the ratio of apple cider vinegar to water. Do not increase more than a 1:1 ratio of apple cider vinegar to water. You can store this in a glass contain (I use the bottle that my apple cider vinegar came in) to apply it topically with a cotton square, or you can store it in a spray bottle and use it to freshen your skin throughout the day. Do not rinse it off after use. Kick it up a notch: Brew your favorite organic herbal tea (example: green tea) and use it in place of distilled water. (I recommend you keep your toner in the refrigerator if you go with this option!) Kick it up another notch: Add hydrosols to make the experience a more nourishing one (1/2 – 1 tsp for every 8oz). You can also add a 2-3 drops (per 8oz) of tea tree essential oil for additional anti-inflammatory benefits, or lavender essential oil for a more aromatic, soothing experience.
@karly12 I use it as a toner on my face twice a day. and in my scalp once a week in the shower
how often should you use it?
@avocadolove only if you have open sores. otherwise, no. it took my eyes a while to get used to the fumes but I have no problems otherwise
@aDeadlySin Doesn't it sting your face???
@Lauraamans I tried what you suggested (adding lavender essential oil) and it smelled so much better. Thank you!
