Aloe vera juice, Coconut water, Acv and Rose water.

If you guys can remember, I mentioned in my intro post that I am a big fun of DIY (Do it yourself) so today I will be sharing one of my favourite DIY Idea on how I make my own facial toner. I used to get a lot of skin breakouts; I decided to change most of my products to natural/organic. I then incorporated the DIY Toner In my Regime and noticed a big positive difference. I have never bought a toner again since then.

A toners function is to complete the cleansing of your skin by removing dust, pollution and impurities that can still linger after washing with a cleanser. Most cleansers usually contain oil as part of the ingredients, which can leave a film on your face. It should be used in the morning and at night. In the night it works as a cleanser and in the morning to remove the sebum produced in the night and to balance the skin’s PH.

To make the toner, I always use coconut water, rose water, apple cider vinegar (ACV) or aloe vera juice as the main ingredient. Make sure the ingredients are 100% pure. I sometimes use just one of the above and or mix them up occasionally. In this DIY I will be using: Coconut water, Rose water, Aloe Vera juice, Honey and Vitamin E oil. Let’s get started!

Since my rose water is almost finished, I decided to use the same bottle for my DIY toner.

I added the aloe vera juice and coconut water to the Rose water till the bottle was almost full. (The ratios depends on one’s preference)

I then added a bit of Honey, I didn’t use so much since my Aloe vera juice has some honey in it. Using too much honey can make the mixture to feel sticky on your face.

After adding the ingredients, I shook it to combine the ingredients. I added few drops of Vitamin E oil. Most of the time I don’t add the vitamin E oil, only if I make a lot of the toner since Vitamin E is a natural preservative. Vitamin E is how not recommended if you have very oily skin.

I put the toner on the cotton pad, then apply it on my face. I did on the hand to show you the outcome.

  1. You keep rising and rising. Very proud of you Celest. We’ve come a long way from Nakuru zile madays za lifebuoy.

    And on a related topic, thank you so much for this. I always have breakouts and I simply don’t know what to do anymore. I have tried everything! And I mean Everything! My face seems to be a bit better, but I still have a long way to go, and your way seems like the best.

    • Oh gal, Thanks for the continous support. Its all natural yes. Also avoid touching your face all the time and make sure to change the pillow covers at least twice a week… Getting enough rest and drinking more water should go hand in hand too….
