The purpose of astringents and toners is to assist in the gentle removal of oily residue while tightening the pores. The usual routine is to first use a facial wash, then a toner, followed by a moisturizer. You can however, use the toner instead of a cleanser or as a way to refresh yourself during the day.
The addition of the alcohol makes this astringent ideal for oily and/or blemish prone skin as it is very efficient in removing excess shine. For this reason, it is important not to over do its use. You don't want to disturb the pH balance of your skin, which could result in the production of excess oil as your body attempts to make up for stripping away the natural oils.
Witch Hazel has long been used as a cooling and soothing astringent for facial preparations and acne treatments.
Aloe vera gel is added for its gentle and healing properties. A touch of glycerin helps to hydrate the skin.
The addition of grapefruit essential oil contributes the emotionally uplifting, stimulating and antiseptic benefits we associate with members of the citrus family.
The antimicrobial, disinfecting properties of tea tree oil are our allies in the battle of preventing and treating skin flareups.
This citrus toner can also be used to help clear up chest and back breakouts.
Spray onto a cotton square and apply to desired areas such as face and chest.
Citrus Astringent and Toner comes in a 2 or 4 oz. spray bottle.
Note: Witch Hazel traditionally is made through distillation resulting in a product with 14% alcohol for preservation. Witch Hazel can be made without alcohol but for preservation purposes, benzoic acid, a mild preservative is added. Please let me know upon ordering which type of witch hazel you prefer. Alcohol free is preferred if you want a product for very sensitive skin or are concerned about the toner being too drying. The traditional witch hazel with alcohol is preferred if there is concern with the risk of a preservative causing an allergic reaction.
Prop not included.
