Recipe for homemade and natural astringent alcoholic

To remedy this we need:

  • 2 cups of distilled water
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint leaves

We use distilled water because it is the purest there and has minerals such as tap water or bottled water they sell. Moreover, mint and parsley have astringent and cooling properties.


The water boil and remove from heat. He adds chopped mint and parsley, cover and let stand for half an hour. It is cast on a clean glass bottle or plastic. It can be applied either with a cotton swab or spray. Whatever is left over can be stored in the fridge and lasts a week before they have to pull.

This astringent should be applied after washing the face. Be sure to shake the bottle before each application.
