5 Homemade Toners For Acne Prone And Oily Skin

Toners are a vital part in any skin care routine. With regular use, toners can make skin appear youthful, taut, even textured, less oily, pimple free and even toned. Toners dry up the acne and help it to heal fast. Toners help to remove oily buildup, dirt, residue and dead skin cells and assist in reducing acne and pimples and prevents future breakouts.

Let’s move on to some homemade toners which can be made with ingredients easily available in your kitchen. These homemade toners requires one or two ingredients, so you don’t need to worry to get tons of ingredients to make them.

Homemade Toners For Acne Prone Skin

Mint Toner

Wash and boil few mint leaves, strain out the leaves and pour it in a bottle. Keep this toner in the fridge, this will last for 3-4 days so make a new batch after every 4 days and use it continuously for 15-20 days to see the actual results. Use this toner after cleansing, take it out on cotton ball and swipe it over your entire face. Mint works great in treating acne and pimples.

Neem Toner:

Neem, mint and basil leaves have been used since ages to treat acne. Make neem toner same as how you would make mint toner. Wash few neem leaves, boil it in double the amount of water till the water turns dark greenish in color. Let it cool down and strain out the leaves. You can use this water to wash your face, take bath with it and use it as a toner by storing it in a bottle. Neem water treats whiteheads, acne and all types of allergies.

Rose Toner:

Wash 15-20 rose leaves and mix them into 2 cups of water. Boil this mixture, once the mixture cools, strain out the leaves and put it in a bottle. Use cotton to spread the toner gently around the face. Do this daily after cleansing. You can even make a toner same as this way with fresh marigold flowers.

Camphor Toner:

Ground the camphor and mix it with rose water. Keep this in a bottle so it lasts long and is easy to use. Shake the bottle well every time before using this toner so that the camphor properly dissolves in rose water. Use it with cotton ball 4-5 times a day. This is very helpful in treating acne and blackheads.

Cucumber Toner:

This more of sounds like a face pack but it’s actually a toner. Grate a fresh cucumber and mix 1/2 cup of curd in it. Mash both the ingredients well with a spoon. Keep this mixture in the fridge for 5-6 minutes before using it. Use it with fingertips and spread it all over your face and then wash it off with water. This toner is really good for oily and acne prone skin. You can store the leftover pulp in the fridge.

Try one of these homemade toners regularly and see your acne reducing in just a few weeks. Hope this helps!
