The purpose of a facial toner, also called an "astringent", is to clean the skin by removing excess oil and closing your pores before moisturizing. The word toner, as it implies, reflects the way toners "tone" your skin, evening out complexion and giving your face an even tone.
This toner is perfect for any skin type, and particularly helpful for blemishes or acne-prone skin. White will bark, a plant high in salycylic acid, is an anti-inflammatory. There are many skin care products on the market that expensively boast about being a product high in salycylic acid. This is exactly that, in the plant form. Olive leaf is wonderfully anti-bacterial, which helps to clean the skin and prevent further breakouts from clogged pores. Calendula is also anti-bacterial, and with chickweed acts as an excellent herb for nourishing the skin. Chickweed, grapefruit, and orange are high in vitamin C, an essential vitamin for maintaining healthy tissue, inside and out. Witch hazel is an age old astringent that serves to tone the skin and close pores, preventing them from being clogged by dirt or moisturizers.
Apply with a cotton ball.
