Natural Skin Toners That Give Your Skin Extra Love

The secret to healthier and younger-looking skin is a beauty regimen that includes the right toner for your skin. Using a skin toner refreshes the skin by protecting it from external elements, soothing it and helping it retain its moisture.

Some people, however, are not big fans of toner, thinking that its ingredient list always contains alcohol, which dries out the oils of the face. On the contrary, not all whitening toners used for the face contain harmful chemicals. 

To experience the benefits of a toner without harming your skin, change your skin routine by going natural. 

Natural Vs. Synthetic Toner: Does It Matter?


Synthetic toners can be harsh on your skin since a majority of them use alcohol. Alcohol-based toners dry the skin and worsen acne due to the overproduction of oil that it causes. When looking at a toner's ingredient list, look out for ingredients like "denat" and "isopropyl," aka harmful alcohol you should stay away from.

Apart from alcohol, some toners also contain Glycolic acid, which is an irritating and stripping ingredient.

Natural toners, on the other hand, are effective yet gentler on the skin. Blends with aloe and witch hazel are often popular toner combinations known for calming redness while drying excess oil. Natural toners also refresh and tone tired and dry skin.

After cleaning your face, using an organic skin toner provides additional cleansing; it controls shine, balances the skin's PH levels and minimizes your pores, reducing your risk for acne.

Going Natural with Skin Toners: What are Your Options?

Instead of settling for commercial skin products, consider making the switch to natural.

Here are effective organic skin toners that aren't just available in your home, but are also excellent at keeping your skin healthy.

Chamomile Tea Toner

This herbal tea is not only delicious and healthy; it's also great at addressing skin concerns. Chamomile tea toner acts as a natural moisturizer that tightens your pores and lightens your skin complexion. It's the best solution for dry skin and protecting your skin from sunburns. You could use the chamomile tea flowers or leaves (or both!) since they are equally beneficial for the skin.

How to Apply?

Boil 3 ounces of water and add a chamomile tea bag in boiling water and wait for five minutes to allow the water to extract the color of the tea. After boiling, let the tea cool down and apply the tea-soaked water on your neck and face with a cotton ball. Let the toner soak into your skin for about 20 minutes before washing it off with water.

Rose Water and Camphor Toner

Known for its medicinal and therapeutic properties, camphor has been used to address skin problems. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe the skin and make it less susceptible to pimple and acne. Rose water, on the other hand, acts as a cooling agent with hydrating and anti-bacterial properties that are suitable for all skin types.

Camphor and rose water make an excellent skin toner combination that soothes your skin after a rough day. This natural toner reduces the secretion of excess oil and sebum from the skin.

How to Apply?

Add a dash of camphor in a bowl of rose water and mix. Dab the mixture on your face with a cotton ball and apply it to your face. The mixture reduces the redness of your face and cools the skin from exposure to the heat. You can also store this natural toner for about a month in the fridge.

Apple Cider Vinegar Toner

Apple cider vinegar is popular for its numerous skincare benefits. It balances and restores the natural PH levels of your skin, giving you a natural glow. Apple cider also minimizes your skin's pores while removing dead skin cells.

How to Apply?

Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with water. Blend the mixture and store it in a bottle. Use a cotton ball to dab the mixture on your face and neck.

Cucumber and Curd Toner

Cucumber is famous for its hydration and cooling effect on the body and the skin. It also reduces redness and swelling caused by sunburn. Due to the presence of silica and antioxidants, cucumber is also a great remedy for dark circles. On the other hand, curd lightens your skin and keeps wrinkles and fine lines at bay.

How to Apply?

Add two to three tablespoons of curd in a bowl and set it aside. Use a fresh cucumber to dab and apply the mixture on your face and neck. Apply the mixture in a counter-clockwise movement for a better effect. After the application, wait for 10 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.

Your skin deserves only the best. 

Give it some extra loving by going natural with your skin toners.
