How to make your own Toner with Witch Hazel Extract

Note: This is a professional formula. All of these ingredients are on our website

Witch hazel toners are a popular skincare product used to cleanse skin and tighten pores. Witch hazel can help treat acne-prone skin, breakouts and it has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. However, conventional facial toners can have added alcohols which can dry out the skin. By making your own facial toner you can skip on the added alcohols and customise it to your needs.
