Although alcohol content in toners helps in absorbing the products in your skin, it is also okay to do away it and opt for a natural substitute. You could use aloe gel or mint leaves to apply it on your face. If you are opting for the latter option, you have to boil the shredded mint leaves and cover the vessel. Let the extract cool down before applying it on your face. You could also use Apple Cider Vinegar and mix it with water and apply it on the face. It helps in brightening your skin tone.
You can use Apple Cider Vinegar as it cleans your hair which not stealing the moisture. If not this, a mixture of cornstarch and lavender essential oil works well as cornstarch absorbs all the dust and oil from your scalp and makes it clean.
Natural face pack
There are so many varieties in this category that you couldn’t have to buy a face pack, filled with chemicals, which promises wonders. You can use curd, honey and gram flour (besan) mixture on your skin. There is egg (white) and yoghurt mixture which helps in tightening your skin or mashed banana and honey mixture which you have to keep on your face until it dries. Of course, we can’t forget tomato pulp which helps in de-tanning.
Natural makeup remover
You can use coconut oil or grapeseed oil to remove the makeup from your face. As coconut oil can be comedogenic (acne-causing), you could use it on your eye areas and your lip, instead of applying on your whole face.
