what do you say about ppl with dry skin. I heard they should not try lemon. Oh btw Anyone applying lemon on their skin should use sunblock lotions and avoid sun to avoid getting tan.

Toning the skin can help tighten the pores and can remove any dirt, oil or impurities that are left behind after washing. While there are many skin toners on the market, many of these contain skin-irritating chemicals that can inflame the skin. Luckily, you can tone the skin effectively by using a few different homemade toners.
