So I am going to bring it back with a skincare DIY that is probably one of the best skin clearing remedies that I have posted about to date.
Right now skin care companies are scrambling to incorporate an ingredient that you all most likely have access to. Thyme. Thyme is the HOT new skin food at the moment. Recent studies are proving it to be more effective than topical prescriptions containing benzoyl peroxide. Crazy right?! Here is how you can get the most out of this amazing ingredient and incorporate it into your beauty routine...
What you will need:
- Fresh or dried thyme. I used dried which I found at my local health food store in bulk.
- Apple cider vinegar. You can read all about the benefits here.
- Glass container to store toner. I used am empty vitamin E jar.
- Cheesecloth or strainer
- Glass jar. I used a mason jar.
Add about 1/2 cup of raw apple cider vinegar into a glass jar and place inside a bowl of hot water to warm it up. Once it is heated add about 3 tablespoons of thyme.
Let this sit for up to two hours.
Place the cheesecloth on top of the glass jar and carefully pour the liquid into your toner container.
You now have the ultimate acne and age spot fighting toner! You can use this nightly. Apply it with a cotton pad, let dry and then apply your moisturizer on top. To prolong the shelf life of your toner keep it in the fridge. My suggestion would be to only make a small batch at a time and try to use it up within two weeks.
