Oily skin needs a toner that can remove excess oils from skin, that in turns lead to a reduction in open pores and pimples. Thus this toner has tow ingredients:

  • Apple cider vinegar has astringent action along skin cleansing and tightening your pores. It can removes oils from your skin without much damage, provided you dilute it with rose water.
  • Rose water soothes, hydrates and reduces pimples.

So, are your ready to try this simple rose water toner for your oily skin?

How to use?

  • Wash your face with this home based face wash for oily skin.
  • Take a small amount of toner on cotton and wipe your face.
  • Make sure you spend more time on your T-zone.
  • Repeat until you don’t get any residue on the cotton.
  • Use twice daily after washing your face in morning and night.
  • You can also use this toner to wipe off extra oils during the day, but avoid washing your face more than 3 times a day.

How to store?

You can use any airtight plastic or glass bottle and store it in cool dry and dark place. You can store this toner at room temperature for 21 to 30 days or even longer. I usually make small batches of this toner that last for a week or two.

What are the side effects?

This toner has following side effects:

  • It can irritate sensitive skin. Thus, a patch test should be done before first use. 
  • If you cannot tolerate the smell of apple cider vinegar, then replace it with lemon juice. However, it should be stored in refrigerator.

Why should you not add many active ingredients in toner?

There is no need of putting fancy ingredients like mint leaves, green tea, oranges, strawberries, etc. in the homemade toner. Your skin cannot tolerate too many active ingredients, and they can do more harm than good. Thus, I strongly recommend restricting the use of active ingredients in night moisturiser and face packs because in both of these products active ingredients can act on your skin without the influence of environment.
