It’s officially winter and somehow due to our crazy schedule and lack of sleep we’re looking puffy and dull. Besides the lack of radiance, our skin has been breaking out.

Time to incorporate a toner, that will balance our  skin’s pH level  as well as treat both acne and puffiness.

The following toner is amazing for both women and men who suffer from acne, blemishes and puffiness.

Keep in mind toners are great for detoxifying our skin, preventing breakouts, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as  brightening and smoothing our complexion.

Time to get our hands on some carrots.

Carrots are packed with minerals and vitamins.

The Potassium and Vitamin A found in carrots will diminish puffiness and provide our skin with the hydration needed for these next couple of cold months. The vitamins present in this powerful and nourishing toner will also tone our skin, improving our complexion.

Carrots also have beta-carotenoids which will protect us from sun damage as well acts as an anti-aging agent (improving the amount of collagen in our body which  increases elasticity…firmer skin)

How to Make our Carrot Toner.

Beyond simple, all you need is a small bottle. Fill the bottle with half water (bottled) and half Carrot Juice( ideally you should always take a fresh and healthy approach …so it’s best to make your own…but if you can’t…select then organic/pure carrot juice)

Shake the bottle, and apply with a cotton ball over clean skin. Let it dry and continue with your regular skincare routine. You can store this toner up to 4 to 5 days in the fridge.
