Turmeric Toner To Reduce Breakouts And Facial Hair
Homemade toners are prepared with help of natural ingredients. Toner helps to clean and clear the pores that have been clogged by impurities and bacteria. It also acts as a hydrating agent and keeps the skin moisturized. An important ingredient for preparing homemade toner is turmeric. Regular usage is effective in getting rid of two important skin problems like breakouts and facial hair.
# Ingredients required
- Tea tree oil – 5 drops
- Organic Kasturi turmeric powder – 1/3 tsp
- Witch hazel – 1 tbsp
- Aloe vera gel – 1 tbsp
- Water – 1 cup
How To Prepare:
- Take a glass jar and pour 1 cup of water inside it.
- Now add 1 tbsp of witch hazel to it and stir for a few minutes with help of a spoon.
- Take a small part of aloe vera leaf, peel and extract its juice. Stir it briskly to make it smooth and even textured. We need 1 tbsp of smooth aloe vera extract, hence, add it to the jar.
- We are using organic Kasturi turmeric powder for our recipe as it stains less than normal turmeric powder. Add 1/3rd tsp of the powder to the glass jar along with 5 drops of tea tree oil.
- Mix all the ingredients properly and then pour it in a spray bottle.
- Remember to shake the spray bottle properly before using it so that the ingredients are mixed together once again.
How To Use:
- Clean your face properly before you apply the toner by using a facial cleanser.
- Shake the spray bottle briskly and place it a few inches from your face and spray on it directly.
- Make sure your full face is covered by the toner.
- Leave it for 5-10 minutes.
- Rinse it away with normal water.
How It Works:
The turmeric facial toner is made from natural ingredients and is quite powerful in itself. All its ingredients have nutrients and properties that can easily clean the clogged pores and remove facial hair with time if used regularly.
