One of nature’s oldest and most effective skincare ingredients to date…Now that’s something we can get behind!
Perhaps you’ve heard of Witch Hazel before as an ingredient in a toner or serum or maybe this is your first time. Regardless of your familiarity with the ingredient, you want to make absolutely sure this is a part of your daily skincare regimen.
Witch hazel is part of the Hamamelidaceae plant family and is native to North America and the most popular use for witch hazel is skin care. As we know, the skin is our largest and most vulnerable organ in our bodies so it can use all the support it can get.
While skin is our natural barrier to the outside world, factors like UV radiation, chemicals, environmental pollutants and even what we is can disrupt the skin’s ability to fight signs of aging and actually make them worse.
All of the “stress” that our bodies deal with every day, both internally and externally, show up on our skin in the form of aging, puffiness, infections, inflammation and sensitivities. That’s why we rely on eating and using natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory to help curb inflamed and diseased cells.
That’s where Witch Hazel comes in. It is considered a strong antioxidant and it’s astringent properties are perfect for killing bacteria and free radicals that lives within skin’s pores.
Witch Hazel aids in stopping cellular damage that prevents signs of aging, and speed up healing of existing skin damage. If you suffer from any skin conditions like redness, irritation, inflammation, excess oil or dryness, it’s pretty much the skincare miracle ingredient you’ve been waiting for!
