Rosewater and witch hazel are excellent choices for sensitive skin. They are gentle and not as drying as alcohol-based toners and astringents. Rosewater can be found in drugstores and natural food stores.

• 4 tablespoons rose water
• 2 tablespoons witch hazel
• 2 tablespoons distilled water

1. Mix all ingredients and pour into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid.

2. To use: Apply to your skin using a clean cotton pad after cleansing.
