Nature's Way - Toner

Using a toner is an extra step in your skin care regime that will tighten up your pores and improve the texture of your skin.  A toner can also delay natural sagging of your skin which will keep you looking younger for longer.  Sadly, most chemical toners will cause harmful substances to build up in your skin which will damage your skin and cause premature ageing.  Most toners contain alcohol amongst other harmful ingredients.
Using a toner will bring your skin's PH level back to normal, remove the leftover traces of dirt and make-up and will absorb the excess oil from the surface of your skin.  

Nature’s Way Alternatives

It’s so simple that you might have overlooked this one.  A splash of cool water onto your face is a great basic toner.  If the water is too cold it can constrict the blood flow, and can lead to burst capillaries.  Also, water that is too cold makes your face blotchy and irritated. It’s best to use slightly warm water to wash and slightly cooler water to rinse as a mild toner.  Of course this won’t remove any traces of make-up and doesn’t offer any PH balance so why not use a dash of rose water or even some homemade mint water.  I have also heard that Apple Cider Vinegar does wonders as a toner.  The most important thing is to experiment as everyone’s skin is different and will respond differently.

  • Healthy skin
  • Remove traces of dirt
  • Balance your skins PH level
  • Tighten your skin
  • Return your pores to their natural size
  • Save lots of money
  • No harmful chemicals

  • Never apply toner to dirty skin


Ingredients:        Mint

There are many other simple ways to tone your skin using natural ingredients, here are some examples:

Rose Water
Rosewater is a rich composition which enhances the skins natural healing properties. It can be used to soothe irritations and reduce swelling and blemishes.  Rosewater is an excellent daily skin toner.

  • Sprits your face with rose water or use cotton pads to wipe the rose water over your face.

Cucumber and Yogurt
  • Take 1 small peeled cucumber and place it in a blender until it becomes a thick liquid paste.
  • Add ½ cup plain white yogurt
  • Mix together and apply to your face and neck.
  • Leave for 5-10 minutes then rinse off with lukewarm water and then rinse with cooler water to close skin pores.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar comes from fermented apples and is full of vitamins and minerals that help restore skin's pH balance.  It also has antibacterial properties to fight skin infection and cleanse.
  • Dilute one part apple cider vinegar in eight parts water.
  • Apply to your skin and leave on from ten minutes and up to 1 hour depending on skin sensitivity.

For Such a Time As This

Hello King's Daughters, It's been a while since I've been in touch and King's Daughters has been very quiet, in fact totally dormant.  During this time of dormancy, a seed has been growing inside of me and it's so strong that I have to seriously consider if it's God saying "It's time".  Time to start taking back what the enemy has stolen from us. Time to fight for our families, schools, churches, communities and nation. Time to pray together and be proactive, not reactive to what is going on in the world today. Time to talk about the complex topics that our churches may not be ready to discuss openly such as gender confusion and mental health issues. Time to learn how to generate an income or second income by using what's in our hands and to have extra to be generous to the world around us as we face economic uncertainty.  Time to find balance when everyone else is consumed by busyness. I have a story to tell, a struggle I've been through t
