Would you like to try your hand at this home made toning lotion using grapefruit? This toner is especially suited for oily and sensitive skin. A harsh-astringent lotion can only irritate your skin. So why not go in for a mild concoction like this. Skin toners as such have an evaporating and cooling action that causes muscles to contract and pores to shrink temporarily. Besides, toning is pleasant and refreshing and is valuable in removing traces of grease that the cleanser may have left.
Grapefruit skin toning lotion
Grapefruit (ripe) – 100 gm
Yoghurt – 250 gm
Sodium benzoate – ½ tsp
Remove the skin of the grapefruit and cut it into small pieces. Put the pieces through the blender and then mix with yoghurt to make a fine paste. Refrigerate for an hour and add sodium benzoate. Moisten cotton wool with this lotion and pat it on smear this cream all over your face and neck – it is good for greasy skins with open pores. Do not forget the sides of the nose, chin and forehead. You could also use this after cleansing your skin thoroughly with a good quality cleanser. Leave on for around half an hour until you feel your pores tightening and then wash off with lukewarm water.
