Witch Hazel has become one of the most important items in my medicine cabinet. It has multiple medical and aesthetic uses. Topically, it can be applied for minor skin rash, irritation, bug bites and sunburn. It can also clear up acne, blemishes, brighten skin, shrink pores and eye bags.
I have used it for years now. I cleanse my face and splash Thayer’s Witch Hazel with lemon on it and let it air dry before I apply makeup. I use nothing else. I have not had a break out since. It gives a natural dewy glow without over drying your skin or leaving it greasy. At night, I also put some on a cotton swab to remove eye make up and I dab a little extra under my eyes so that I do not wake up looking too tired or worn out.
There are many other uses for Witch Hazel. Please check out some articles listed below for further uses.
