In addition, you will not spend your money on expensive cosmetic products. Here are various toners recipes that you can make yourself at home.

In order to obtain cucumber juice, you can peel the cucumbers, pass them through the blender and then strain them. Again, as in other toners, you can apply the cucumber toner twice in the morning and evening.
