Hello lovely people! Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite “beauty secrets” from my skin care regimen that does absolute wonders. Witch Hazel. If you know anything about witch hazel, you would know that it’s an amazing skin care astringent. Being used in skin care for hundreds of years, I would say that there’s definitely something amazing about this natural toner that keeps generations using it!
Witch Hazel is a native plant to North America that can be made into a skin-healing astringent that’s capable of naturally reducing acne, blisters, insect bites, poison ivy, inflammation and much more. Out of all the many ways it can be used, the most popular is applying it directly to the skin which helps kill bacteria living on the skin, minimize pores, and gets rid of acne all while being 100% natural. So you could say that it’s basically the best natural acne skin treatment known to all of mankind.
I’ve been using Thayer’s Witch Hazel for the last month and have seen such a huge change in my skin. Thayer’s has been around since 1847, so I trust that they know a thing or two about witch hazel. With a long history of astringents, Thayer’s also has a variety of different kinds of witch hazel that help all kinds of skin problems. My favorite concoction from their collection is the Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel Since applying it with a cotton ball after washing my face in the morning and night, I’ve noticed it has tightened my pores, and keeps away blemishes all while soothing my skin with rose petals and aloe.
My second favorite formula is the Thayers Organic Lavender Mint Witch Hazel $12.95, which is infused with USDA Certified organic lavender and cooling mint. I love it because it soothes the skin just like the Rose Petal Toner, but leaves my skin feeling even more refreshed and smelling like sweet mint and lavender. Yum!
Not only does my face get to glow from the benefits of Witch Hazel, but my whole body does too! My last secret weapon for glowing, clear skin is the super sudsy Rose Petal Body Bar Soap $4.99. Ideal for sensitive skin, the Rose Petal Body Bar helps purify any blemishes on the back or anywhere on the body that has impurities.
I highly recommend to everyone of all skin types to try out Thayer’s Witch Hazel because it honestly is my biggest skin care ”secret” that keeps my face clean, clear, and glowing!
