If you have oily or acne prone skin then we recommend that you should use a toner every day. A toner helps dissolve excess oil, cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores and is usually used on face. So it not only makes your skin feel clear, smooth, but controls breakouts also.
Natural Beauty Tip: Always apply toner onto clean skin. Wash your face as you normally do and pat dry with a clean, soft towel. Apply the toner with a cotton pad or cotton ball. Use your favorite moisturizer immediately thereafter. If your skin is oily or acne prone then you need to use a toner daily, morning and night to prevent breakouts and keep your skin flawless and super smooth.
Today I’m going to share with you how to make Green Tea Toner for Oily Acne prone skin at home.
