When it comes to skincare, most of us know the basics pretty well. Start by cleansing, then move on to a toner, followed by moisturiser. Yeah, CTM! While most girls are really diligent when it comes to the first and third step, many of them are guilty of skipping toner? Girl, if that’s you, you need to fix that right away.

Apart from tightening your pores and maintaining the pH levels of your skin, a toner does a lot more. It also helps the rest of your skincare products sink deep into your skin and work better. Additionally, toner is a great way to tighten the gaps between the skin cells and add an extra layer of protection against environmental aggressors.

To help you get started, we have come up with a really simple yet effective DIY toner recipe that not only does everything mentioned above, but also leaves your skin spotless and glowing. The best part about this toner is that it uses only two very easily available natural ingredients.
