When it comes to your beauty routine, if you want to make sure that you’re really keeping your skin nice and clean, then a toner must definitely be a part of your lineup.
You see, a good toner helps do the job that a regular cleanser can’t—get rid of makeup, or sunscreen (which you should also ALWAYS put on, even when it’s cloudy outside), or other products you may have put on your face and neck. Kind of like a deep clean, if you will, and is especially important for those who have oily or acne-prone skin.
Now the thing with toners is that although they do a good job of keeping your skin nice and clean, sometimes they can be a bit drying. Don’t’ get confused. If you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize and hydrate.
So you really should choose your products wisely, keep them chemical free, or even better, to really make sure you know exactly what you’re using, just make them yourself. So here is a simple yet effective homemade hydrating toner recipe that will get the job done but is gentle to the skin.

What You Need:
- 4 Tablespoons Rose Water
- 2 Tablespoons Witch Haze
- 1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 5 drops Rosehip oil
What To Do:
Get a clean bowl and simply add in all of the ingredients. Mix well. Once everything is blended together, you are done. This small batch should last you about three to five days or so. So be sure to keep it in a tightly sealed container and just like any other product, out of direct sunlight.
Once that’s ready, you can then apply. To do so, you must first prep your skin by washing it as you normally would. Pat dry. Then simply take a cotton ball and dampen it with your homemade hydrating toner. Apply all over your face and neck in gentle circular motions. No need to rinse off after. Follow up with the rest of your routine.
