We all love a good beauty product and facial astringents and toners are a part of just about everyone’s facial beauty treatments. It doesn’t matter if you are a girl or a guy because the truth is that everyone should use a good facial astringent and a good facial toner as well.

It is never too early or too late to start taking good care of your skin. Let’s face it, we only get one body and we should do everything in our power to take good care of it because you don’t get another one.

Do you spend good hard-earned money on facial astringents and toners? Did you know that you can make your own at home in your own kitchen? Have you ever thought about it? Maybe you have and you just don’t know where to start.

Even if you have not ever thought about making homemade facial astringents and/or toners, you will want to after reading this article! By making your own facial astringents and toners at home in your own kitchen you can save money and at the same time, you will know the exact ingredients in the facial products you are using.

These astringents and toners are made from all-natural non-toxic ingredients so they are healthier for your skin. Facial astringents can stimulate the skin system but they can also dry your skin out. Facial astringents should only be used on oily skin or open-pore type skin.

Facial astringents should never be used on acne or blemishes because they could potentially make the condition worse. Seborrhea and other skin blemish conditions should have a good facial toner used on them to help promote healing of the skin.

Facial toners help to refine open pores and unevenly textured skin. Toners also reduce oiliness and stimulate circulation in the skin. Facial Toners are much milder than astringents. Facial Toners should be used after you cleanse your face to remove any leftover residue from other facial products.

When making your own facial astringents and/or toners you should use essential oils because essential oils are effective. They may be hard to blend, but if you give the bottle a few good shakes before each use this will be effective in making sure that they are mixed well.

The following method works for making both facial astringents and toners. You need to put all the ingredients into a glass bottle or jar with a screw-on lid that is airtight for good storage and let it sit for 24 hours then pour through a paper coffee filter. Rebottle it and use it when needed but, don’t forget to shake it up before each use.

Here are some recipes for making your own Facial Astringents and Facial Toners at home in your own kitchen. Remember, you should always test a small area of skin to make sure that you don’t have an allergic reaction to the product. Enjoy!
