DIY Black Tea Facial Toner

By Francine Holmes

Toner are great cleanser and at shrinking the appearance of facial pores.

Toners can also be used to remove makeup as well as any residual particles that are blocking your pores. Regular use of facial toners can help to bring back moisture to your skin, in addition to restoring your skin’s protective acid mantle. Those with oily or blemish prone skin will benefit most from toners.  Here’s a DIY recipe for oily skin.

You’ll need:



  • Applicator bottle
  • 1/2 cup of black tea (your choice)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Vodka
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of witch hazel
  • 1/2 teaspoon of glycerin (honey or agave)

In your applicator bottle, pour in the witch hazel,  the apple cider vinegar and the black tea. To that mixture add the glycerin and then gently swirl the bottle to mix it.

And finally add the Vodka and again, gently swirl it around to fully blend it and voila! all done. Now to use it, pour a small amount on a cotton pad and apply it to your face, while making sure to avoid your eyes (it will sting like the Dickens!!) leave it to dry then follow with your moisturizer.  Have fun making and using this simple recipe!
