Cleanse-tone-moisturise, the skincare routine everyone should follow. But, while we do cleanse and moisturize, we often forget an important step that is toning. Toning the face after cleansing hydrates the open pores and helps shrink them so no dirt and dust end up clogging and causing acne. It also balances the pH levels of the skin and removes any kind of toxins that may have been left behind.

There are a ton of natural ingredients that work wonders in the department of toning the skin however, each skin type has a different requirement. If you are prone to dry skin, you will need a toner that not only helps shrink the pores but also hydrate the skin. So, we're here to your rescue with some of the easiest DIY toners that will give you the skin of your dreams.
