How to Make Toner for Normal Skin
If your skin is not particularly oily or dry, you likely have a normal skin type. This toner for normal skin will protect it from becoming too dry or oily, while also moisturizing it.
Cucumber has a cooling effect on the skin, even on sensitive skin. It hydrates your skin and provides a soothing sensation. It also creates a perfect balance between the oiliness and dryness, so your skin remains normal.
Aloe vera is a great addition to the toner if you don’t want your skin to become greasy while staying hydrated. It also has antibacterial properties that help ward off acne and pimple breakouts. It also speeds up skin cell regeneration, making it useful in delaying skin aging.
Rose essential oil has excellent properties for rejuvenating your skin. It also has astringent properties to treat acne-prone skin, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness and inflammation.
Peppermint essential oil helps control oiliness, therefore preventing acne. The use of peppermint oil can also refresh and cool your skin.

How to use your DIY toner for normal skin
- You can spray it on your face, making sure it covers all the areas of the face.
- Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes. Then, rinse it off with normal water.
You can store this mixture in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.
- Witch hazel also works as a great skin toner for all skin types. You don’t even need to add anything to it. Make sure you use alcohol-free witch hazel.
- If you don’t have green tea, simply mix equal parts of water and apple cider vinegar to create a natural skin toner for oily skin.
- To extract the aloe vera gel from the leaf, slit the leaf using a knife and scoop the gel out with a spoon.
- If you don’t have a spray bottle, you can just use a bowl and cotton pads to dab the toners on your face. Make sure to put them in an airtight container when storing.
- Take care in storing your toner. While refrigeration helps, do not store the homemade toners for more than 10 days, as they will lose their benefits by then.
