Why buy expensive skin toner when you can purchase witch hazel water for less than $4? Witch hazel water removes makeup residue and is gentle on skin. To make a scented toner, combine 1 part rose water with 1 part witch hazel.

For stressed, dry skin, apply extra-virgin olive oil after you take a shower or wash your face. Olive oil is much more affordable than fancy moisturizers from department stores.
