Day 9 – DIY Skin Brightening Toner – {DIY From Scratch}

I’m still on a DIY Beauty treatment kick at the moment.

As I shared in the Vitamin C Serum blog post, my first facial cleansing regime was Clinique.  It was 3-step process that started with washing my face with soap, using toner and then moisturizing.  This was perfect for a teenage skin, but as I aged, I dropped the toner because it was too drying.

When I discovered this tutorial for a skin brightening toner, I thought I’d give it a try again.  These days I’m really interested in anything that will hold back the wrinkles.

Happy toning.


Until tomorrow,







Mom – you better label the mason jar or else dad will think this is lemonade.  Boy will he get a surprise!
