After I cleanse my face using the Oil Cleansing Method I use a toner spritz of Apple Cider Vinegar and green tea.
ACV has antibacterial and antiseptic properties, it’s main function is to balance skin’s pH. Adding green tea to ACV plus essential oils, you can create an amazingly healthy toner for your face!
Cider Vinegar 2oz
Water 2oz. ( I used to use tap water but I switched to bottled water or at least boiled or distilled water. Rhode Island tap is harsh)
3 Green Tea teabags (I use the caffeinated tea because caffeine is good for the skin so a double win)
10 drops Jojoba Oil (a wonderful moisturizer that closely resembles the sebum in your skin’s structure)
Boil water, add tea bags, and allow to steep for 20 minutes. Allow tea mixture to cool, and pour into a spray bottle. Add ACV, Tea, Jojoba Oil, and mix well.
Mix all ingredients well, and pour in a spray bottle. Spritz on face. Don’t worry about the smell. If you do this at night it takes less than a half hour for the smell to fade. I like to use it in the morning so I make sure it is the first thing I do to give it that time.
To moisturize my face I use a variety of oils from coconut to avocado. Right now I am using avocado. Avocado is my go to in the winter months as it treats my eczema and a bit heavier moisturizer in the cold months.
*Occasionally I will add Tea Tree oil to the mix as it is an excellent anti-fungal oil.
**I buy empty spray bottles at the dollar store or Target. I am goint to start buying labels because we’ve had a few mishaps due to bottles not having labels on them LOL
Tomorrow I will post my favorite facial and body scrub. I love coffee in more ways than one 🙂
