If all the stress from the holidays is leaving your face tired and puffy in the morning, take a break and pamper your skin with this DIY cucumber face toner (Cucumber is great for soothing and softening skin because it has the same pH as healthy skin.)
1/2 cucumber with peel, chopped
3 tablespoons witch hazel
2 tablespoons distilled water
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove all of the solids, then pour the toner into a clean bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Store this toner in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life—it should last for several weeks.
To use, apply the toner to your face using a clean cotton ball.
