Witch hazel, a natural astringent derived from the leaves and bark of the witch hazel shrub, boasts numerous benefits for skin care. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it a popular choice for reducing swelling and redness caused by conditions such as acne, insect bites, or sunburns.
Witch hazel is also effective in smoothing out skin texture and reducing the appearance of pores due to its ability to tighten and tone the skin. Additionally, this plant extract has antioxidant properties that protect against free radicals and may help prevent premature aging.
Its antibacterial qualities can also aid in preventing infection and promoting healing for minor cuts or scrapes. Lastly, applying witch hazel can improve scalp health by reducing dandruff and soothing irritation caused by eczema or psoriasis
