Studies show that topically-applied witch hazel can effectively help soothe your skin, making it an effective treatment for psoriasis or eczema.
We also recommend consulting with your doctor before trying a new skincare routine.
It also acts as an astringent, creating a retraction in your tissue, which could help to shrink pores, while also soothing your skin.
This may prevent bactering from settling into your skin and reducing the risk of acne. It's highly beneficial to those with oily skin.
Did you know that sensitive skin plagues up to 45% of Americans?
Some research suggests that applying witch hazel topically to sensitive skin may be beneficial in the treatment of inflamed, irritated or broken skin.
Always start by consulting your physician before ingesting witch hazel. Most people can safely use it topically without negative effects. We still recommend starting with an initial skin patch test on our inner elbow to prevent side effects.
Apply a smal dab to a reusable cotton swab and apply to affected area up to three times per day.
