How do I make my own facial toner?


 


Toner might seem like an afterthought, but it's a must in your beauty routine, especially if you're dealing with oily skin or acne. Not only does it reduce sebum, but it also removes any traces of makeup left after washing, and it can smooth the skin surface, reducing redness and inflammation.
