DIY Salt Toner To Shrink Pores & Exfoliate

By Aniela / April 25, 2018

Sea salt has a number of beauty benefits, and is often used in many DIY beauty recipes. This is because sea salt has a number of properties that are beneficial to the skin, including cleansing, exfoliating, shrinking pores, and tightening the skin. Especially for those with acne prone and oily skin, sea salt can greatly reduce the amount of sebum (oil) that the skin produces! This DIY salt toner is super easy to make and will control oil production, shrink pores, and exfoliate the skin, getting rid of flaky skin and dead skin cells to reveal softer, brighter skin.
