You will not only save money in the process, but know exactly everything that is going into the product you are creating. Take a look below at how you can make your own DIY Skin Astringent and enjoy fresh, clean, and vibrant skin.

Homemade Skin Astringent

DIY Skin Astringent

Supplies needed:
2/3 cup of basic Witch Hazel
1/3 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
2-3 drops of an essential oil of your choice (optional)

You can find apple cider vinegar as well as witch hazel at your local pharmacy or grocery store. Both items are not only easy to find but rather inexpensive. Opt for the generic brand, as most of these products are the same from brand to brand.

As far as essential oils, you can find these at most retail store or health food stores. Find a scent that you prefer. Of course, this ingredient is optional so you may omit it if you wish.

1. Combine all of the ingredients in an air tight bottle. A simple spray bottle or even glass jar with lid will work.
2. Shake the contents or stir them with vigor so they mix well.
3. Store for up to 2 weeks in a cool place with the lid tightly attached.

To use your DIY skin astringent, simply dab a little bit of the product on a cotton ball and apply it to the face. Avoid eyes or sensitive areas. It may tingle slightly but if it becomes uncomfortable rinse the product away at once and do not use. As always, test a small patch first to make sure your skin does not experience any allergic reactions.

Enjoy fresh and clean skin for less when you make your own astringent at home. It is so easy! Give this “recipe” a try and let me know what you thought of it!

    I am going to try this! Usually I just use witch hazel but I will add a little ACV to it tonight. That’s a good idea- will probably help tone up my skin! Thanks for sharing at Showcase Your Talent Thursday! :-)
