How to Make Honey Tomato Facial Toner. A good facial toner is gentle for cleansing the skin without irritation, but powerful enough to eliminate acne causing bacteria, remove makeup residue and cut oil each and every day. All natural facial toners are generally quite expensive, but contain inexpensive and common ingredients which you can easily throw together at home.
Things You'll Need
- Large, ripe organic tomato
- All natural raw honey
- Mesh strainer
Purchase a large, fully ripe, organic tomato. Not only are organic tomatoes free of harsh chemical pesticides and fertilizers, they general contain greater amounts of vitamins and minerals for pampering your skin. Tomatoes contain gentle acids which will help to cleanse your skin while removing dead skin cells.
Choose all natural raw honey as well which has not been treated with heat or mixed with chemical preservative. Honey is a natural moisturizer with anti-bacterial properties, helping to eliminate the bacteria which forms acne while keeping the skin soft and supple.
Wash the tomato thoroughly and then cut it into small pieces. Place the pieces in a mesh strainer, setting the strainer over the lip of a bowl, and then use the back of a spoon to press the juice and fine pulp through the strainer.
Add enough honey to the bowl to make a thick paste and then apply your facial toner evenly to your face and neck. Allow the toner to do it's job for at least 15 minutes and then rinse with cool water. Your toner is gentle and effective, perfect for everyday use.
