DIY Rose Water Toner

Being the beauty junkie that I am, I have quite a collection of facial toners at home (most of which have cost me some beaucoup buckaroos). Since I’ve been in money-saving mode lately, I’m trying my best to make all my beauty products from scratch.

Roses are in bloom right now, so I thought this was the perfect time to make a refreshing, floral, rosey face mist all DIY-style. Btw, rose water is awesome because it not only smells uh-mazing, but it’s great for dry, sensitive and normal skin. It also constricts your pores, which helps prevent breakouts and keeps you lookin’ chipper!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of rose petals (rinsed)
  • 2 cups of filtered water
  • A spray bottle

Place your rose petals in a pot or metal bowl. Pour 2 cups of boiling filtered water over them and cover with a lid. You’ll wanna let your rose petals soak for a good 3-4 hours. Then use a strainer to add your beautiful-smelling rose water to a spray bottle, and voilà! Use your toner after washing your face and before moisturizing. I like to store mine in the the fridge (for up to a week), because it’s extra refreshing on hot summer days.

Do you have any DIY vegan beauty recipes that you’d like to share? xx

    Best to be sure they were NOT treated w/ pesticides at any time prior. Wash/rinse thoroughly first.
