Today’s Daily Dose of Thrifty is homemade facial toners with a common household ingredient: Lemon Juice!

This little trick is actually very good for your skin and will save you loads of money over the name brand toners.

First, is lemon juice good for your skin? Well check out these rave reviews from the site lemon-info.com:

“Citric acid contained in lemon juice exfoliates your skin, which is essential to speed up the treatment of acne. It also allows you dry the pimples as it acts as an astringent. Being a skin whitener, it eventually diminishes the redness of your pimples naturally. You may also apply lemon juice to acne scars in order to encourage their swift healing and temporary bleaching.

Lemon juice works as a toner, especially if you have oily skin. Simply dilute lemon juice with water and use it. However, it is important to note that lemon juice is after all an acid and should therefore be kept away from eyes.”

Here’s what you will need:

  • Lemon
  • Water

How To Make:

  • Squeeze a lemon wedge into a bowl/jar/small container
  • Add a few drops of water to dilute a little
  • Mix

How To Use:

  • I just apply mine like a regular toner with a cotton ball on my face
  • Store it in the fridge if you make enough for several days use

That’s it! You have a simple, virtually no cost way of taking care of the toning part of your skin. Plus the benefits are unmatchable (in my opinion – as we love using all natural alternatives)!

I have also seen some homemade lemon juice toners that use witch hazel but have never tried it. Just mix in equal parts witch hazel with lemon juice and a little bit of water to dilute.
