Skin toner transition!

During the winter, we normally use our space heaters and a forced air furnace. While keeping us warm and toasty, it really dries my skin out. So, I discovered that I can transition my toner from astringent to moisturing. What I did was I added 2 tsps of vegetable glycerin and 1 oz of rose water per 3 ozs of toner. I poured out my toner into a bowl, added them and mixed them really well just poured it back into the bottle with a funnel.

Vegetable glycerin is an emollient, a humectant and it's hygroscopic (attracts water from the air). Rosewater nourishes the skin with a plethora of benefits. It tightens pores, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and balances sebum production. It also is naturally antibacterial!
