I believe toners are important for us to use on our faces because they keep our skin clean and free of dirt, excess oils and dead skin cells. I use a toner every morning after I have cleaned my skin, and then I use a facial oil. I have medium to oily skin, so I use one of my toners which have alcohol in them. If you have very dry skin, you should limit your use of alcohol products on your face and use water instead. Green Tea can be used as an excellent skin toner because it contains antioxidants, including Vitamins C and E, which help to strengthen your skin's natural defences. Pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over 2 teaspoons of green tea leaves and allow to steep for a few minutes. Strain and allow the liquid to cool. Dip cotton wool balls into the cooled liquid and smooth onto your face in upward motions. Do not rinse. This toner is an anti-irritant and would be useful for aggravated skin.
