This light homemade toner is perfect to clarify and tone the skin.
– Makes 1/2 cup
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled and cut into pieces
- 2 teaspoons honey
Puree cucumber in a blender. Line a sieve with cheesecloth and set the sieve over a glass bowl or measuring cup. Pour the cucumber puree through the sieve and let it stand for 15 minutes for the juices to drip into the bowl. Pour the clear juice into a clean bottle and add honey.
To use, shake the bottle and saturate a cotton pad with the lotion. Sweep over face, neck and chest morning and night, and let it air dry (about 3 to 4 minutes). Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Makes about 1/2 cup.
Note: Honey should not be fed to infants under one year of age. Honey is a safe and wholesome food for children and adults.
