A toner is usually the middle step in your routine. After cleansing, you apply your toner while your skin is still damp (spray directly on your skin, or apply with a cotton round), and follow it quickly with your favorite moisturizer or facial oil. The toner hydrates your skin, and topping it with a cream or an oil helps your skin retain that moisture. Our Purely Calm Gel Toner is a fan-favorite, and we hope you've had a chance to try it! But if you're feeling creative or like a DIY project from time to time, how about making one of these toners at home? You’ll need a clean glass or aluminum bottle, and one of the recipes below!


Toner for dull or congested skin

Pour one cup of boiling water over ½ cup fresh, organic parsley. Allow to cool, strain, and pour into a clean bottle. Keeps for two weeks in the fridge.

Toner for dry skin

Puree ½ cucumber (with skin) and a tablespoon of fresh aloe vera gel (or store bought if you don’t have an aloe plant) in a blender until smooth, adding water if needed to blend. Strain mixture and pour into a clean bottle. Keeps for ten days in the fridge.

Toner for normal to acne-prone skin

Pour one cup of boiling water over two chamomile teabags and allow to cool. Remove teabags and add 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Pour into a clean bottle and shake before using. Keeps for two weeks in the fridge.



What about witch hazel, you say? If you can find witch hazel hydrosol, use it to make a lovely toner! But most witch hazel on the market is high in alcohol, which is why we didn’t use it in any of our recipes. Alcohol-based toners are drying to most skin types, so we’ll stick with aloe and tea!
