Witch hazel is a natural astringent produced from the leaves, bark and twigs of the North American, Witch Hazel shrub also known as Hamamelis virginiana. Long ago, its powerful benefits were discovered by the American Indians who used witch hazel’s ability to shrink body tissue to effectively treat swelling, inflammation and tumors.
According to WebMd, “Witch hazel contains chemicals called tannins. When applied directly to the skin, witch hazel might help reduce swelling, help repair broken skin, and fight bacteria.” Here are 4 ways that you can tap into the natural benefits of witch hazel to give your beauty routine a boost that will leave you feeling great, inside and out!
Refresh and Revitalize Anytime
Skin Renewing Witch Hazel Misting Spray is an easy and convenient way to refresh your skin throughout the day. The calming ingredients deliver instant nourishment to your skin whenever you need it. Spritz it on after a workout, following sun-exposure or to combat the dry air on long flights. It’s great to have on hand for minor cuts, stings or skin irritations making it a new must-have for today’s witch hazel on-the-go lifestyle.
There’s good reason to upgrade your routine from the “one product does all” mentality. When it comes to intimate care, regular soaps, gels and body washes can be harsh, so swap these out for a gentle product formulation that respects the natural pH balance and protective bacteria of these areas.
