Watermelon isn't just a sweet treat to enjoy in the warm weather — it makes a great ingredient for a DIY face toner, too. Watermelon can act as an exfoliant and will cleanse and tone your skin as well. Because watermelon and its seeds are loaded with all sorts of things that are good for you and your skin (vitamins A, C and antioxidants that may help prevent cell damage and protect your skin), it makes a super ingredient for a face toner. Combine it with a few other ingredients that are easy to get your hands on, and you have a great DIY toner.
Before applying the watermelon toner to your face, first test it on your inner arm, where you skin is more sensitive, to help ensure you can tolerate the ingredients. Don't forget to first wash your face to remove any dirt or makeup, and then gently pat your face dry.
Pull your hair away from your face, and soak a cotton ball or pad with the toner and apply to your face with a cotton ball, moving in upward strokes. Allow the toner to stay on your face for a few minutes, rinse with warm water and moisturize as usual. The toner should keep for several days stored in your refrigerator.
Watermelon is wonderful!
