DIY Skin Brightening Toner

One of my favorite things about Sodeë Naturals is research & development; getting to "play" with new recipes is my kind of fun. Downtime is spent browsing for do-it-yourself skin care recipes using natural ingredients to try and share. 
Here is a great simple facial toner recipe from using only three ingredients!

I tried this recipe and loved it! Though it is a simple recipe it has many benefits for your skin.

 Some of this toners natural benefits are:

  • Helps diminish discoloration caused by scars, skin disorders, and age spots .
  • Natural antibacterial properties to minimize black heads and prevent further breakouts.
  • Gently exfoliates removing dead skin cells promoting new cell growth.
  • Effective yet gentle astringent.
  • Shrinks blood vessels, reducing redness and inflammation.
  • Tightens skin and minimizes large pores.

I found these cute colorful bottles at IKEA for less than $2 for a pack of four :)

The acids in the lemon juice may be irritating to some people, I suggest to do a test spot on your neck (just under your right/left jaw). Apply toner to spot, let sit, wash off if any irritation occurs. You can also dilute the lemon juice with water before mixing with witch hazel for a gentler solution.

Want to keep the glow going all day? After cleansing & toning, follow with Sodeë Naturals 24 Hour Face Lotion. Made with Orchid Flower Extract for flawless, even tone skin.
