Lately, I’ve been obsessed with this amazing, all-natural lemon toner. It brightens and lightens skin, and it’s also great for acne-prone skin. The reason I decided to whip up this toner is that I suddenly notice that I was developing some sunspots on my face. They were all on the left side of my face, so I think the damage came from the sun shining on that side of my face when I’m driving. Lemon is a great lightening agent, and it’s better than many high-end lightening products. When you whip up this toner, it will give you brighter, lighter skin, and it will also prevent breakouts and tighten your pores.
Here’s the thing about packaged Vitamin C
Vitamin C that is packaged in over the counter products doesn’t always work. While vitamin C is wonderful for your skin, it goes bad quickly. This means that most products contain preservatives that help to keep the vitamin C from going bad.
When you use fresh lemon juice, you have a natural Vitamin C source that gives you the vitamin C benefits you want, including brightening, tightening, and lightening, without dealing with those preservatives. It offers better results, and it will cost a lot less than an over the counter skincare product that contains vitamin C in it. In fact, you can get all the ingredients for this toner for just a few dollars.
What you’ll need:
- Fresh Lemon
- Witch Hazel (or rose water) If you don’t have rosewater, you can check (my DIY recipe here).
- Purified Water (bottled or filtered)
Make sure you store your lemon toner in an airtight bottle. Keep it stored in a dry, cool place (better store in the fridge). Never keep this toner for more than two weeks.
