• Distilled or filtered water
  • Organic raw apple cider vinegar

It is not recommended to put apple cider vinegar directly on the skin as it can burn.  Instead, it's recommended to dilute a mixture of water and apple cider vinegar.  Also use the solution on a part of your skin other than the face when first trying it out.  For instance the back of the hand would be a good place to try it out.


For sensitive skin (or if you’re just starting to use toner): Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water

For normal/dry skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 2 parts water

For oily skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 part water

Note: One “part” is any measurement you chose to use. So, if you’re following the sensitive skin ratio, you’ll mix 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar with 4 tbsp water.


  1. Pour organic raw apple cider vinegar into a glass bottle or a glass jar.
  2. Add distilled or filtered water.
  3. Shake the bottle to combine the mixture.

To Use

Apply it to skin using a cotton ball or pad, avoiding the eye area. Some people prefer to pour it into a small spray bottle and spritz it on, that works too.

Allow the apple cider vinegar toner to dry, then follow with a moisturizer.

Shake well before each use. Store in a cool, dry, dark place. No need to refrigerate.

For best results, apply this homemade apple cider vinegar toner twice a day, as part of your normal skin care routine. You’ll be amazed how quickly you see results and how rejuvenated your skin feels.

Note: Do not make the apple cider vinegar tonic in large amounts, because it will not be that effective when the vinegar evaporates.
