Skin Care Toners

Lesson #3



Welcome to lesson #3, your third step in beginning your own natural skin care routine:

Natural Skin Care Toners

As each step of the basic natural skin care routine of exfoliation, cleansing, toning and moisturizing build upon the other you will begin to see better and better results.

Are you having fun with the lessons so far?

I hope that you are learning how easy it is to care for your aging skin concerns simply by using the ingredients right in your own kitchen.

Today we will be making a quick and easy rejuvenating facial toner that is really quick and easy and will cost you just a few pennies.

But then. . .
We are going to get a little creative and turn the same basic toner recipe into a variety of other anti-aging skin treatments.

Making your own natural facial toners couldn't be easier!

Facial toners provide the skin with a wealth of essential age fighting nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. (To name just a few of the benefits).  Skin care toners also give the skin a final cleansing, tighten pores, and protects the skin from environmental pollutants.

Natural toners infuse the skin with nutrients in addition to restoring the skin's natural pH balance.  They are a wonderfully refreshing way to keep skin tissue hydrated while stimulating the skin cells to promote cell regeneration.

This particular toner recipe is rich in age fighting antioxidants which reduces free radical activity, has natural antibacterial, emollient, astringent, and a host of other rejuvenating properties.

Basic Anti-Aging
Toner Recipe 

  • 2 heaping tablespoons of green tea leaves
    (or 3 to 4 green tea bags)
  • 1 cup mineral water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped rosemary leaves                                

Special Note:
Sensitive to normal skin types can substitute half of the mineral water for milk.

Oily to acne prone skin types can add 2 to 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar or substitute half of the mineral water with vodka for an extra stimulating toner!

Simmer all ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium heat for at least five minutes. Let cool.

Squeeze out the tea bags back into the saucepan. Strain into clean bottle.

Use to tone skin once or twice daily.  The toner will keep for up to a week without refrigeration.

Now let's start getting creative!

Adapting skin care toners and other natural recipes to provide additional rejuvenating treatments couldn't be easier.

Facial Mist:
For example, this same basic recipe can also be used as a facial mist. Simply fill a small spray bottle with the strained mixture to keep you skin hydrated throughout the day.  It's a great way to keep your skin cool and refreshed at the beach too!

Facial steaming:
A weekly facial steam is particularly important for aging skin. Cover your head with a towel while the mixture is just barely simmering, positioning your face above the steam. Be sure to keep our face a few feet above the steam so the skin tissues don't get burned. Steam for up to five minutes.

More Options:
Many skin care toners can also be used to infuse facial wrap materials, frozen for under eye treatments and/or adapted for many other natural anti-aging facial treatments as the base for a moisturizer, mask, or even a peel.

And for those times when you just don't feel like making it yourself or if you are feeling like an especially exotic spa type treatment, I especially like using a Mud Mask.
