Apple Cider Vinegar Toner

The purpose of a toner is to add necessary nutrients to the skin. Vinegar toners are especially great for those who suffer from oily skin, but works well for all skin types. Apple Cider Vinegar is an acne sufferers/ oily skin sufferers best friend. I often put it in many of my mask/ cleansing recipes because of its ability to balance the skin, and its AHA properties. Apple cider vinegar fights acne and restores the proper level of acidity to your skin. It can also help heal many skin disorders (it helped me with my acne, and red blotchy skin). Although many people (who have built up a tolerance) use 100% apple cider vinegar as a toner, I would recommend diluting it 1:3 when first starting out. This toner can be rinsed off, or left on the skin, under moisturizer or make-up HOWEVER, the higher the ratio of vinegar, the more 'smell' you will have (which does eventually fade). So, use your own discretion. My favorite apple cider vinegar is "Bragg" but you can use any organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. You can also use green tea, which scientific research suggests has a variety of beneficial properties when used topically. If you prefer not to use green tea, than just use filtered water.


Ingredients (makes 1 cup/ placed in the fridge for several weeks):
1/3 cup organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
2/3 cup green tea, or filtered water

1) Shake all of the ingredients together in a bottle (I like to use a spritzer bottle for easy application). Keep in the fridge.
2) For use, shake the bottle (as the vinegar tends to settle). Dab on gently with a cotton ball, OR spritz on. Allow to dry (about 10 minutes). You can leave on the skin, or you can gently rinse it off.
