Warnings and Safety Precautions:

  • Undiluted Apple Cider Vinegar is very acidic and can damage your skin
  • Test the toner on a small area on your face first to test whether you have any reaction
  • It might sting your pimple but it is the good kind of hurt. It is tolerable
    • Note: It did not sting for me. It is only sting for me when my pimple just pop and my pores are wide open. So it depends on your pimple and skin.
  • Use it only at night!
    • Apple Cider Vinegar increase skin sensitive to ultra-violet rays

Instructions:

Step 1: Pour water into the container until it is half full.

Step 2: Shake the apple cider vinegar bottle before pouring the same amount as you did for the water into the container.

You can gradually increase the concentrate of apple cider vinegar in your toner after your skin is used to it. However, do not use too much as apple cider vinegar is very acidic and can damage your skin. You need to slowly build your skin tolerance to it.

Step 3: Cut the lemon into smaller pieces. Use only a piece of lemon and squeeze it into the container.

You can use more than 1 piece of lemon depending on how much acidity you would want in your toner. Start off with just 1 and go from there. See how your skin reacts to it first.

Step 4: Use the fork to take out any lemon seed that has fallen into the container.

Step 5: Add 3-5 drops of Tea Tree Oil into the container.

The number of drops it depends on your preference and skin. Start of 3 drops than go from there after seeing how your skin react to it.

Step 6: Close the container and shake it to mix it up.

How to use it:

  1. Shake it before you use it
  2. Take cotton pad fold it in half and half again until it is a square
  3. Dip it slightly into the toner. It would soak the toner up
  4. Apply it into your skin
  5. After using it all over the face
  6. Take the cotton pad and place it on top of an area that is prone or have quite a number of pimples for a few seconds
  7. Remove it and do your rest of your skin care regime
