How To Make Face Toners At Home

Good facial toners help in closing up the pores, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They provide additional protection to your skin from smoke, smog and other environmental toxins. They refresh and revive the skin by penetrating pores and removing excess oils. By stimulating blood circulation in the face, toners tighten up the skin, thus making it firm and good looking. Applying a face toner with a cotton ball helps to remove any last traces of soap, makeup, oil and grime as well. Preparing such toners at home is an excellent choice for giving your skin a healthy and pure glow. Read on further for some recipes to help you know how to make face toners at home.
