DIY Mayan Skin Toner

Cucumbers have the same pH as the skin, and its juice is very softening and emollient. Carrots are rich in vitamin A and minerals that nourish and heal the skin, helping to keep it from aging. The herb spearmint stimulates and cleanses the skin with its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Chamomile is not only rich in minerals, but helps prevent wrinkles, is moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory. Add a little lemon juice and you're set!

Zazil Toner
1/4 cup cucumber juice
1/8 cup carrot juice
1/2 cup spearmint infusion (tea)
1/4 cup chamomile infusion (tea)
1/2 cup lemon juice

Make the cucumber and carrot juice in a juicer. Make strong spearmint and chamomile teas and let cool. Combine all the ingredients in a glass jar and shake to blend. If you freeze the mixture in ice cube trays, just pop out a cube and rub it over your face. If you don't freeze, keep the jar refrigerated and use a cotton ball to apply to face.
