Cucumber is loaded with beauty boosting benefits so it’s a no-brainer why we should be adding the Cooling Cucumber Toner to our regular beauty regime. Cucumber helps restore the natural pH of your skin while nourishing and moisturizing it. Sun damaged skin is often soothed and rejuvenated by the natural coolant that cucumber offers. This is a mild recipe and can be used on all skin types. Please remember to always perform a skin test with the formula prior to applying it to your face to make sure there is no reaction.
It’s important to use organic cucumbers so there is no risk of pesticides transferring to your skin. If organic is not an option, please make sure to wash the cucumber very well.
1/2 organic cucumber, chopped, keep the peel on
2 tablespoons distilled water
3 tablespoons witch hazel
Helpful tip: Witch hazel is a clear liquid usually found in the facial care or pharmacy aisles of your local drug store.
Put all of the ingredients into a juicer or food processor and blend until smooth. Strain the mixture to remove any small solid pieces and then pour the liquid into a clean container or spray bottle. Toner can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
Apply the toner to your freshly cleansed face with either a cotton ball or directly from the spray bottle. Allow the toner to sit for a few minutes and then follow with your daily moisturizer. That’s it! A very simple step can make a huge difference in the overall health and beauty of your skin. Give it a try today and see the difference for yourself!
