Ever heard of Witch Hazel? This fantastic natural ingredient has earned a special place in the world of skincare hundred of years ago and we're here to explain why it's so great for you. Discover all about what it can do to your skin, whether it's dry, sensitive, oily or aging.

How Witch Hazel is Made

Witch Hazel is made from the bark and leaves of the Hamamelis virginiana plant, which are left infusing in water and then the liquid is filtered before it's used, in skincare or natural remedies. This small tree is mainly found in North America and has been valued for its healing properties by different cultures throughout history.

What are the Benefits for the Skin?

- Calming and Soothing: Witch Hazel is a game changer for irritated and inflamed skin, it soothes and calms red skin almost instantly. If you have sensitive skin or deal with issues like eczema or rosacea, its anti-inflammatory properties are a lifesaver. It reduces redness, eases irritation, and speeds up the healing process.

- Controlling Oil and Minimizing Pores: If you're battling oily or acne-prone skin, Witch Hazel and its natural astringent qualities tighten pores, regulate oil production, and prevent clogged pores. By purifying your skin gently, it keeps breakouts in check and promotes a clearer, healthier complexion.

- An Anti-Aging Wonder: Witch Hazel's rich in antioxidants, making it a formidable weapon against signs of aging. It effectively diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots while encouraging collagen production. This leads to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

With all its benefits, it's no wonder it deserved its place in our Spot Treatment, Fix It.
