Moisturizing facial toner
Moisturizing is one of the main ingredients in facial skin care. Tonic not only nourishes, but also removes residual dirt and cosmetics. Disputes over the need to use lotion are long gone. After all, it normalizes the natural pH level and replenishes the lost moisture when washing. Homemade tonics are especially useful.
Depending on the composition of the lotion, the desired result can be achieved.
So, for example, for the dry type, softening and moisturizing tonics are well suited. And for the mature - renewing and with hyaluronic acid. It will give the skin freshness and youthful antioxidant composition.
Natural tonics are uniquely beneficial. Let the home formulations be stored for no more than a couple of days, but they saturate the skin with all the necessary vitamins and minerals.
Fruit components contribute to ultra-hydration and lifting of the skin. In addition, they are suitable for young girls to slow down the aging process.
The advantage of homemade lotions is that they can be supplemented with pharmaceutical preparations, for example, vitamins E and A. After using such products, the epidermis literally shines and a feeling of freshness remains for a long time.
In addition, tonics on decoctions of herbs can be frozen. As a result of such procedures, the pores are narrowed and the epidermis tones.
The simplest tonics, and for some the best, are, of course, one-component. It is enough to squeeze the juice of a cucumber or simply brew chamomile flowers. Such a lotion will moisturize, cleanse and lighten the skin, and additionally it will also refresh.
But if there is time and desire, then there are several types of simple home recipes:
- Oatmeal tonic. Hercules flakes are brewed with boiling water or with very dry skin with milk at the rate of 1 tablespoon per glass of liquid. As soon as the infusion cools, filter and wipe the face.
- Using eggs. Rub a tablespoon of olive oil with egg yolk. Wipe the face with a cotton pad and leave for 15-20 minutes. The mixture is washed off with warm water.
- In milk. In a glass of milk, add 1 tablespoon of mashed banana / pulp of orange / strawberry, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, you can add a little sugar, and bring to a boil. With a cooled mixture, lubricate the face and hold for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
- Apricot lotion (you can use peach). To the juice of 1 peach / apricot add 1 egg yolk and a teaspoon of cream. Mix and wipe the face.
- A tonic of cabbage juice. 5 cabbage leaves, 5 sprigs of parsley and 1 cucumber grind to a homogeneous mass. Add 5 ml of alcohol and insist for about a day in a cold place. Then squeeze the mass and mix with 20 ml of water.
And now the video is a facial tonic recipe.
Application: basic rules
For the normal type, it is enough to wipe the face and neck with a tonic in the morning and evening immediately after washing to avoid overdrying the epidermis. Thanks to these procedures, moisture is retained and the skin is ready to apply the cream. In the heat, you can do the usual cleansing with lotion.
Dry and problematic skin needs moisture most of all. Therefore, it is advised to wipe with tonic or milk and during the day.
Oily skin should also be moisturized. After all, often it is for her that a superhumidifier is needed. Due to the lack of moisture, the skin itself produces fat, due to which clogging of the pores occurs and a greasy shine appears.
Do not neglect proper cleansing and hydration. Because even a moisturizing cleansing milk may not cope with the task.
