Cucumber Lemon Face Toner ~ Cheryl's Delights

I am not a fan of makeup or facial products.  I do not like putting unnatural products on my face. I have been experimenting with food for beauty. With that said nothing feels better than wiping your face with a natural face toner.

You know the new saying if you wouldn’t eat it don’t put it on your skin!  I don’t think drinking store bought witch hazel is a good idea but it is a natural product (please don’t drink witch hazel).

 

 

1 ½ cup roughly cut cucumber

Juice of one  lemon (roughly 1/8 – ¼  cup)

½ cup witch hazel

¼ cup distilled water (I use well water)

 

In a food processor or blender, add the cucumber and lemon juice.  Blend till fully ‘mushed’ :-P.    In a bowl or 2 cup measuring cup, add the witch hazel and water.   With a strainer and some cheese cloth, strain the cucumber mixture into the witch hazel mixture.  Use a small icing spatula to get all the tiny bits of goodness into your cheese cloth.  DSC_1369Once it has drained for a bit fold up the cheesecloth and squeeze out the rest of the juice.  This will make about 1 ¼ to 1 ½ cups of toner.  Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for several weeks.

To use your toner, apply to a cotton ball or pad and wipe your face.
