Facial Astringent


1¼ cups


  • 1 cup distilled water (this is important to keep bacteria from forming)
  • ¼ cup Apple Cider Vinegar 
  • 10 drops favorite essential oil (I like: lemon, lavender, or geranium)


  1. In a large bottle (use glass, if using essential oils) combine the ingredients. Shake well.
  2. Keep on the counter. When you introduce water into a product without a preservative you always run the risk of introducing bacteria, so use water-based products quickly.
  3. To use, apply a small amount to a cotton ball or pad and wipe face.


The simple ingredients create an astringent that tightens pores, keeping the unwanted junk from entering. Much like the Avengers– protecting and defending you from all the bad guys wanting to wage war on your lovely pores. If you have oily skin, like myself, this astringent is your new best friend.

Simply apply using a cotton ball, after cleansing your face in the morning and evening.  

Follow with a moisturizer.
