The Natural Make-It-Yourself Face Toner!

Rose water is one of those unknown and underrated miracle workers that can be used as a nutritious drink and is one of the best natural skin toners that you can get on the market today. Though it is not readily available and can be expensive, there is a way to make this miraculous liquid (with basic, natural ingredients) right in the comfort of your own home with very little cost. This all natural toner contains vitamins A and C, is bursting with antioxidants, and helps stimulate circulation in your skin leaving a nice healthy glow. If used on a regular basis, it would help improve the overall complexion and health of your skin!

How to Make Rose Water
I normally get criticized by my brother for boiling roses that I receive as gifts. I generally don't boil them when they're fresh out of guilt and because they look so pretty, but I tend to do it when they're getting old before they lose their fresh beauty. DON'T do this if you want the best quality rose water. Try to get newly picked roses, if possible.  

1. Once you have your roses, pick off all the petals. I normally use about 10 roses for a bottle of rose water. 
2. Put the petals in a bowl and rinse them off. Get off any impurities.
3. Get a metal pot and put about half a liter of water in it. Place the roses in the pot.
4. Place a lid (preferably a glass one) on top of the pot UPSIDE down. Place ice cubes on top of the lid. This allows the evaporated water to condense and make the rose water even more potent. 
5. Bring the rose water to a boil, and then put it on medium heat. Leave it for 25-30 minutes. Make sure to check on it and replace the melted ice cubes.
6. Take off the heat, remove the lid (CAREFULLY), and voila! You have your rose water.

How to Use Rose Water For Your Skin
1) Wash your hands with soap and water.
2) Wash your face of any impurities.
3) Place rose water in cupped hands and rinse your face with it.
DONE. Do this daily and expect naturally beautiful skin!
