Parsley Facial Toner

Who knew at this stage in our lives we would still be
battling acne. For us, a lot of the products designed for teenagers are too harsh. We were so excited when we found this recipe in this months issue of Women's World magazine.

Parsley is a natural antiseptic so it is great at fighting acne. The toner will quickly purify and clense your skin. We found this recipe to be very gentle and effective.





All you need is parsley, boiling water and a clean reusable bottle.
Chop an 1/2 cup of parsley.
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the parsley. Let cool and then strain. Pour into your reusable bottle. The toner has a lovely fresh smell. Pour a little on a cotton ball and sweep over your freshly washed face.
The toner will last a month if kept in the fridge.
Pin It!

  18. I would love that smell. Now we just need to come up with a use for the wilted parsley that is left over from making the toner.
    Maybe in a soup?

  20. Thanks for the great tip! Do you know how long it keeps out of the fridge?

    Another tip: I like keeping my toners in a spray bottle to mist EVERYWHERE in the summer time for refreshment (even better if they were in the fridge!)

  29. I cannot say enough about Purity 12's product like the SP beauty lift-instant face lift wrinkle serum. My skin stays hydrated the whole day, and I mean so soft and glowing! I am so into all their products and hope they never stop making them. My face looks ten years younger and no wrinkles at all! Try it now! www.purity12.com - 133
