Toner for your skin

We are quite aware about this term ‘toner’, but many of us don’t know the actual reason behind using toner. Well, basically, toner is a cosmetic product which is used for cleansing the skin and it even helps to shrink the facial pores. It completely eradicates the dead cells and the alkali residue, which will immensely help the skin to breathe properly. Finally, it makes the skin feel fresh, smooth and clean. Toner can be applied to the skin in different ways; like, either by putting some toner on a damp cotton wool and dab it onto the face; or soak a piece of gauze into the toner and cover your face with it for few minutes. Then pat dry your face with a tissue paper.
You can even use home made toner rather than buying it. Blend half cup of dried rose petals with three cups of hazels (which is an excellent cleanser) and five twig of fresh rosemary (which works as a superb astringent). Thus your toner is ready to use. It can be applied to any type of skin including sensitive skin.

I generally use a Face Wash first and then apply toner. Toner is good for skin firmness. you can make natural toner or use a natural based toner.

I never made toner at home. I buy it from market and they are generally herbal based; since I don’t want to take any risk regarding my skin. But thanks for the recipe, because I always wanted to use the home made stuffs. They are always natural and much more effective.
