Homemade face toner

I have used so many face toners in my life, and it seemed all of them just irritated my skin. I have very sensitive skin, so alcohol in toner is not an option for me ... got so many allergies, break outs and I can go on and on ... Not so long ago I came across with this recipe for a face toner and decided to try it out. I feel in love with it, and haven't used any other face toner in a while. :)
Here is my little "secret".

Things needed:
- organic apple cider vinegar (ACD) - it must be organic one, because everything you put on your skin is absorbed, so it's the best to be the purest (I bought mine at DM)
- distilled water or bottled water
- and of course an empty container (I bought mine with a spray cap in Mueller)

I ran out of my ACD, that's why  picture is not taken by me :)

Pour the apple cider vinegar in a clean empty container till it's half full. Fill up the container with water, so you have a 1:1 mixture. Shake it a little and you are ready to use it.
Apple cider vinegar has so many health benefits: recommended for a weight loss, fights allergies, prevents muscle soreness, strenghtens your immune system ... and of course it cures skin problems such as acne.

I don't really have any acne, but from time to time I break out and it really frustrates me. Since I started using this toner on a daily basis, I found my skin much softer, I breakout less and even blackheads are less noticeable. ACD helps balance out PH levels of our skin. I'm not any kind of a skin doctor, so I don't know a lot how it works, I just know it works magic :)

I use it before going to bed, because the smell is not the nicest one, but you get used to it. I spray three to four pumps in to a cotton pad and gently wipe it all over my freshly washed face (no makeup!). I don't rinse it, I let it air dry and afterwards I apply my night cream. In the morning I wash my face very well to get rid of the smell. Otherwise you can smell it during the day. Been there :P.

Try it out and share your thoughts in a comment section :). I hope it helps!
Have a lovely day,

Lots of love,
xoxo Deja
