Note: I am not a doctor, herbalist, aromatherapist or chemist. I am just an everyday mom trying to figure out how to live naturally. This recipe is one that works for myself and my family. Please consult your doctor before using any diy recipe or essential oils to confirm that they are safe for you. This holds especially important if you are currently pregnant.
DIY Face Toner All Skin Types
Use this DIY face toner for inflammation, to hydrate skin, and reduce puffiness. Made with only four ingredients, this DIY face toner whips up in under five minutes and helps keep skin looking fresh.
To be quite honest, skincare was never a strength of mine. I’ve had acne like the next woman but never terribly and my skin has never been overly oily. But something started to shift once I hit thirty and since then, my skin has been a bit more finicky.
A few more red bumps, a bit of puffiness, and all of this has resulted in me having to put some actual effort into a routine.
And since I like to keep things as simple and natural as possible, I, of course, whipped up my own DIY natural face toner!

Witch Hazel For Skin
Before I whipped up this DIY face toner recipe, I was actually just using witch hazel at the end of the day. It was simple, pretty effective, and took me about two minutes to complete- so win.
Thayers Witch Hazel is the brand I used as both my initial toner as well as this DIY Face Toner recipe because it’s such a quality brand and extremely at removing irritants from the skin
Witch hazel comes from a plant and has some great skin benefits. It has been said to:
- ward of signs of aging
- tighten pores
- reduce inflammation
However, given how much I work out I found I needed just a touch more- especially on the antibacterial side.
Aloe Vera For Face Toner
Most people think specifically of sunburn when they hear the term aloe plant. But this wonderful plant has so many more skin and health benefits.
- fight acne
- relieve irritation
- slow aging
If you’re going to use aloe on your skin (or internally) make sure you use a quality product. Personally, I use Lily Of The Dessert Aloe because it’s a brand I trust, they don’t put ANYTHING into their products except aloe and it works well.
The essential oils in this DIY face toner are completely optional. Keep in mind that there is no oil in this DIY toner recipe so I can’t even be sure that the oils distribute properly or bind and are carried out (I’m not an aromatherapist).
I will say though, that I have noticed a difference in my own skin which is why they’re in there.
I use lavender because it is my “cure-all” for anything red bump related (check out this lavender clay detox mask!). Lavender helps soothe inflation and redness and I use it the most on red bumps.
Tea tree is anti-bacterial. Since I work out so much, I’ve no doubt there are some clogged pores happening. Tea tree helps prevent my skin from breaking out.
Do I Really Need A Face Toner?
I find this really depends on your own skin! Personally, I didn’t use anything on my face for a long time but now find it’s necessary.
If you’re struggling with clogged pores, oily skin or acne, I would give DIY face toner a try.
DIY Not Your Thing?
I hear you. Making your own products, regardless of how simple they are is still time out of your day. Plus, you need the ingredients!
If DIY isn’t your thing, grab the everything spray from Primally Pure. It smells awesome and works really well as a face toner (said from experience). Primally Pure is an all-natural, organic skincare company (my favorite actually) that uses ingredients I can both purchase and pronounce.
For items I am too lazy to make or that I struggle with (hello deodorant!) they’re my go-to company. You can check out my favorite products from them but if you want to grab their everything spray make sure you use code mamabear10 to save yourself some money!
