- 1/2 cucumber with peel, chopped
- 3 tablespoons witch hazel
- 2 tablespoons distilled water
Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove all of the solids, then pour the toner into a clean bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Store this toner in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life—it should last for several weeks.
To use, apply the toner to your face using a clean cotton ball.
Yield: 4 1/2 ounces
