I do a lot of experiments in my kitchen with food. Not only to nurture our bodies from inside but also to enhance our appearance from outside. We actually do not know how easy it is to live with natural vegetables beautifully.

For me beauty is completely what comes from the heart. A beautiful heart lies only inside  a wonderful humanbeing who can appreciate the little things in life and be grateful for that. I am all about the love for gardening small plants that grow easily like herbs and peppers and flowers. I also love fruit trees and my real dream is to own an orchard with all my favorite fruit trees in it. Setting ll this aside let me come to my blog post of today. The Coconut and Aloe face toner.

This was one of my initial tries on DIY beauty tips and after some research on products thats good for the face, I analyzed almost everything contained aloe vera. First of all I just love the aloe vera plant. The bushy plant with those long juicy leaves makes my heart cool and the hundreds of beauty uses with it makes it my favorite. I have a couple of aloe vera plants in my tiny garden and I gaze at it every day. Its easy to grow and one plant could give you hundreds of new plant. So economical too.

For this toner, the biggest ingredient is aloe vera. Then its coconut milk and tomato. Tomato is very good in making the skin glow.

So here is how I made it.

Ingredients:

Aloe vera gel- 2tablespoons
Freshly squeezed Coconut milk- 1 tablespoon
Tomato with skin-1 teaspoon
Lemon juice-1 teaspoon
Mint leaves- 2 or 3 leaves.

Method:
Take all the ingredients except coconut milk and lemon juice and chop with a knife on the cutting board. When the aloe vera is nicely mashed add in the coconut milk and lemon juice. Alternately you can blend all the ingredients in a mixer.
You can also add whole aloe vera gel poeces to this while storing in the refrigerator. So when using as a to er you can ru  the pieces all over the face.
This toner needs to be refrigerated and has a life of about 3 days. This can be used any number of times per day. Just apply ice after washing face with the toner.

Beauty benefits:
You cannot expect results after just one use. But you can surely feel a smoothness and everyday usage would give a beautiful glow to the face and leave your skin soft and squishy.

Working on other face wash and scrubs and face packs. Coming soon.
