Mango Aloe Toner

Mango Aloe Toner

Pick up an extra Mango at the fruit stand this summer, or set aside a few tablespoons before making your morning smoothie.  Mango helps exfoliate the skin and aloe vera gel soothes and helps alleviate redness in the skin.  


This recipe isn’t strictly a “toner” in the sense that we swab it on prior to using cosmetics or moisturizers. Rather, it tones, softens and exfoliates the skin while you sleep and is washed off in the morning.  This is a particularly good mask for windburn after a day of hiking and climbing.

    It was more mask like than a toner but it did leave my skin feeling more toned than a normal mask would, so maybe that is why they called it a toner?

    This was easy to whip together from a visit to Trader Joe’s. They had the aloe vera in a jar so it was one-stop shopping. While I thought it exfoliated my face nicely, and left it bright, it is less of a “toner” and more a “mask.” Not sure why Skylonda calls it ‘toner’ as most would equate that with a thin watery liquid to use before cleansing and moisturizing.
