Rosewater Skin Toner

To prepare rosewater, first gather fresh rose blossoms. Do this during the morning, after the dew has evaporated. Place the petals in a glass, stainless steel, or enamel saucepan and cover them with distilled water. Weigh the floating petals down with a heat-resistant glass dish. Place the pan over low heat and allow the pot to release steam for at least an hour. You should begin to see drops of rose oil floating on the surface of the water. Do not allow the water to boil. When the water has taken on a rosy hue, feels thick and soft, and shows evidence of rose oil on its surface, strain the liquid through a tea strainer, using your fingers to press all the liquid from the petals. Store the resulting solution in a refrigerator.

Apply the rosewater homemade facial toner to the face with a cotton ball.

NEVER use rose petals that have been sprayed with any kind of pesticide for making rosewater! Consider using only enough distilled water to cover the rose petals. Otherwise, the solution becomes more dilute and a lot less effective. Please remember to use only the petals, not the sepals, stamens, or green foliated bracket holding the petals in their grouping.

To prepare this homemade facial toner, mix one cup of witch hazel, 1/4 cup of white vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon of mint extract. Next, drop in some fresh peppermint leaves.

Dab the mixture on the face with a cotton ball in order to hydrate the skin and remove excess dirt from the skin pores.

Egg White Facial Toner Recipes

Next, apply raw egg whites to the skin and leave the egg whites on for at least 15 minutes. After the time period has passed, wash off the egg whites with tepid water and pat dry the face.
