why use facial toners?
Skin toners have an evaporating and cooling action that causes muscles to contract and the pores to become temporarily smaller.
Toning is pleasant and refreshing, can act as an additional cleanser on very oily or dirty skin, and is valuable in removing any traces of grease your cleanser may have left behind.
So, try out these homemade toner recipes ... they differ slightly, depending on whether your skin is oily, normal or dry.

witch hazel - emergency treatment for pimples
Because of its astringent properties, straight witch hazel also makes an excellent emergency treatment for spots and pimples.

This will help dry it out and, if you catch it early enough, could well prevent it appearing.
