Do you use this anti-inflammatory agent for a healthier complexion?
Looking for witch hazel Now Pinterest more than 300%. I used it as a teenager, and I created a beautiful toner with it, because I am a dermatologist who is a fan of witch hazel.
Why is a witch so good for your skin?
- Cleans and removes oil without drying.
- Tones and tightens pores (dermatologists call it astringent).
- It is anti-inflammatory and soothing against inflammation and facial flushing.
- There are also some proven antiseptic benefits of witch bark extract in reducing the number of Staph bacteria, Candida fungi, and viruses such as herpes.
- Contains antioxidants.
As a dermatologist, I know that clean skin absorbs the active substances better in your skin care products. Dirt, oil, dead cells and residual makeup and product absorption. Using witch hazel tonic after cleansing your skin will make your skin even cleaner.
Clean skin usually has a more radiant, moist and smooth texture.
What is witch hazel?
This is an extract of the bark of a plant called Hamamelis virginiana.
Which witch hazel is best used for skin care?
Not all witches Hazel are the same.
The best extract with the benefit for the skin is obtained only from the branches and bark.
Some commercial products from witch hazel contain a lot of alcohol, which dries.
