I just discovered this really amazing all-natural toner made from fresh lemons. It lightens and freshens your skin and is great for preventing acne AND reducing acne scarring.
My wife discovered the recipe for this. She was looking for something to treat sunspots on the left side of her face which came from sun exposure while driving. A friend recommended this to her and showed her how to mix up a batch.
Lemon is remarkably effective at lightening skin and smoothing away small blemishes. You’ll end up with a lighter brighter skin. It will also tighten your pores for that creamy smooth look.
Lemon is a really effective skin care product because of its mildly acidic astringent properties and its vitamin c content.
The problem with commercial products containing vitamin C is that they use preservatives to prevent the vitamin C from degrading. And preservatives are bad for your skin.
Vitamin C in lemons degrades fast after the lemon is picked so to get the full advantages of it you need to use it fairly quickly.
Fresh lemon juice is a natural Vitamin C source that gives you the benefits you want, including brightening, lightening, and tightening, without dealing with any preservatives.
Here’s my recipe for all-natural Lemon Skin Toner rich in vitamin C and with no preservatives. It wont cost you more than a few dollars and will work a whole lot better than any over the counter product full of preservatives.
Lemon Skin Toner Recipe
- 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cup of bottled or filtered purified water
- 1/4 cup of witch hazel or rose water
- a glass jar
Sterilize the glass jar with boiling water first. Then empty the water away and pour in the mixed ingredients. Seal the jar with a lid and refrigerate immediately.
To use, damp a cotton circle with the toner and apply to freshly washed skin. You don’t need to rinse afterwards.
The skin toner will last for about 2 weeks in your refrigerator.
Try this yourself… it works really well and is 100% natural.
