How to Make a Facial Toner

Learn how to make a facial toner from licensed esthetician Joanna Vargas in this skin care video from Howcast.


I'm going to show you how to make a great facial toner. It's going to be really easy. You just need two ingredients. We're going to use aloe vera gel, three tablespoons, and we're going to also use three tablespoons of lime. So the first thing that I'm going to do is cut my lime in half. This is also going to smell really incredible. And I'm going to squeeze half of it into the bowl.

Now I'm going to take my aloe vera gel, and I'm going to mix three tablespoons of that. And I'm just going to mix it. It's very easy to mix together. Lime juice, of course, has a ton of vitamin C in it, which is incredible for the skin. Vitamin C is something that the skin loses very, very easily. The second you go out into pollution or the sun hits your face, you're getting robbed of all of your Vitamin C from your skin. So you really want to make sure you replenish that every day with your skin care products. And aloe vera gel is very soothing and hydrating.

The two of these combined are great because they really clarify your pores, meaning they make the pores look like they're really tightened up. If you do have oily skin, you want something that makes you feel like you've closed your pores after you've cleansed your skin. It's going to make the appearance of your pores seem smaller, which is what everybody really wants is to have tiny pores.

You can apply this to the skin with a cotton ball. You can dab it on just a little bit with your fingertips if you want. You would just apply a very thin layer to the surface of the skin. You don't need to rinse it off. It's not going to get sticky or anything like that. It actually feels really nice and cooling on the skin. And like I said, it's a great foundation for having healthy skin that can withstand all of the pollution and all of the stress that we go through every day when we're heading off to work in the morning.
