I've been looking for a good, as natural as possible astringent. When I posted about the World Beauty book, I told myself to make the lemon lotion. The recipe is dead simple - couple of lemons and a bottle of mineral water.
So I made some and so far, I'm liking it. Granted, you don't get that chemical
burn 'tingle' that you get with store bought unpronounceable-ingredient toners but the end result is the same. And it's so fresh! My skin feels clean and the faint lemon scent is so refreshing.
1 1/2 cups cold mineral water
Squeeze lemons and strain juice into a small bottle. Add mineral water. Use as an astringent after cleansing.
I didn't know what to put it in though; 1 1/2 cups is such an odd size, it would have been great to use some sort of apothecary bottle or something. For now I used an old jelly jar but I'm planning on doing some thrifting today so I'll keep my eye out for a more permanent vessel.
