How does DIY toner work?
All ingredients contained in the toner are natural and provide healing properties. Chamomile has antibacterial and soothing effects. Lemon refreshes, strengthens and brightens skin discolouration. Hyaluronic acid and panthenol are responsible for moisturising and preventing the formation of fine lines. Even thought the toner is handmade of natural ingredients, it is still worth checking whether it causes irritation or not. The best solution is to run an allergy test. If nothing happens within 24 hours, feel free to use the cosmetic as a part of your daily routine.
