Anyway, decided I wanted to make an effort too see if I could maybe clear up my complexion a bit. I don't have any acne, lots of wrinkles, or other huge problems, it's just that my skin looks dull and tired.
I started out researching what kind of toner to buy, as I already had a cleanser, serum, and good slim cream. But then I suddenly remembered having read something about apple cider vinegar as a toner. Googled it and a ton of results turned up. All very positive and all claiming that this was THE BEST TONER EVER!! And as I had some of the said vinegar in the kitchen I decided to give it a go.
I mixed 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 1/2 part strong green tea and 1 1/2 part water. Poured it into a glass bottle, and bob's my uncle. The toner feels very clean, and my skin feels refreshed and tingeling after i have applied it. I apply it with a cotton pad and let it air dry before slapping on serum and moisturiser. It smells of vinegar, but I like vinegar so I'm not really bothered by it. The smell goes away soon enough, maybe after a few minutes. I have used it morning and evening since yesterday, following the golden rule of cleanse - tone - moisturise. So, now we will see how long I am able to keep this up as well as whether my skin will just become radiant and lovely :).
