The Mohonk House shared their favorite DIY facial toner. According to Diane West, from Mohonk, we can  goodbye to tired, dry skin and revitalize our daily skincare routine with this super simple chamomile facial toner.

The Benefits:

Toners help to balance the pH level of your skin, and further cleans it by absorbing excess oil on the surface and removing traces of dirt and makeup. A good toner also helps to close pores and allows moisturizer to easily penetrate your skin. Most people know that chamomile has calming properties, but it’s also rich in flavonoids, which help to protect skin from free radicals and sun damage.

What you need:
  • Reusable Spray Bottle
  • Organic Chamomile Tea
  • Clean Tap Water or Distilled Water
  • Small Face Towel
Directions:
  1. Gather a reusable spray bottle, one teabag of organic chamomile tea, two cups of clean tap or distilled water and a small face towel.
  2. Boil the water then remove it from the heat. 
  3. Steep the teabag in the heated water for 5-10 minutes. Remove the teabag once tea reaches a deep golden color. 
  4. Refrigerate the tea to cool, then pour the tea into a reusable spray bottle and return it to the refrigerator. 
  5. After washing your face, close your eyes and spritz it with this gentle, calming toner.
To heighten the experience, store your spray bottle in a bowl of ice cubes prior to use. You can also roll a damp, lightly spritzed facial cloth and chill it on ice. Gently press the cool towel on your face after a hot shower for a cooling, revitalizing sensation.
