S.W. Recipe: Tightening Bloody Mary Toner

This recipe comes straight from the pages of our founder Adina Grigore’s book Skin Cleanse. It’s the perfect DIY for a lazy Sunday afternoon spent cozied up at home. Feel free to make a Bloody Mary on the side, too!

Skin Cleanse Tightening Bloody Mary Toner

Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and are also very acidic and when it comes to your skin, acid is a very good thing. Tomatoes dry up the excess oil that’s already there and fight acne by preventing your skin from producing too much oil. You can even take a slice of tomato and coat your skin with the juice—it’ll work as a toner all on its own. Vodka actually makes for a great toner—it cleanses and tightens the skin (although I’m not a fan of alcohol as an ingredient in commercial products). And yes, you can sip on this, too!

  • 3 tablespoons tomato juice (fresh is best, but jarred or canned is okay, too)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vodka

Combine all ingredients into a small jar with a lid, seal, and shake well. Apply with cotton and rinse. Keep it sealed in your fridge for up to a few days. It will yield about a dozen usages.
