Rosemary – Black Pepper Toner {DIY}

A simple but effective toner for skin which is prone to acne and pimples as black pepper is great agent to fight pimples and acne. Rosemary tones the skin and removes blemishes.
  • Rosemary Herb (1 table spoon)
  • Black Pepper seeds (1 table spoon)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (2 table spoons)
Method: Take 200ml of water in a pan. Put rosemary and black pepper and boil till half of the quantity (100ml roughly) is left. Let it cool. Pour in a bottle. Add Apple Cider Vinegar and your toner is ready :) This stays for a week or two. Mine always gets finished within a week without refrigeration.
  • Not for dry skin people as it might be drying for the skin. Only for oily and combination skin.
  • Do not use a spray bottle to spray this toner on the face. Always apply with a cotton pad. The reason is that there is black pepper in it which stings badly if it gets in the eye (yeah, learnt the hard way!!).
