When I first looked at this I though you were going to talk about how to add alcohol into a watermelon for a nice summer treat 😉

Never thought about using things as you listed up top for makeup etc. But then again I’m male and I don’t tend to use toner and such!

Vodka? Alcohol is SO bad for your skin! While I’m assuming it’s being used as an astringent and preservative here, there’s already witch hazel working as an astringent. Try sing a blend of witch hazel and rose/lavender water. Balances, and refreshes the skin, without drying it out!
