Dear Jeannine...


Is lemon juice and water an effective toner?  If so, can it be made in large batches?

Lemon juice and water can be used as a toner and will help to lighten age spots and acne marks.  Since lemon juice has a ton of acid in it (which is why we dilute it), it can dry out your skin so use it sparingly.  To   make a week’s worth, mix a half a cup of lemon juice with a cup of water in a spritzer bottle.  Once a day after cleansing, lightly spritz it across your face and then apply your moisturizer.  You’ll notice lighter, brighter skin in about four to six weeks.  Make sure to keep it in the fridge between uses.
