All Natural Witch Hazel
Witch hazel is a topical astringent derived from the bark and leaves of Hamamelis virginiana, the common or North American witch-hazel shrub. High concentrations of tannins in witch hazel make it an excellent astringent which means it can remove excess oil from the skin and shrink down pores. Health-wise, those who are exposed to lots of environmental pollutants may apply witch hazel to the face to reduce the number of contaminants that enter pores and, consequently, the amount and severity of blemishes. Also, because astringents remove excess oil, regular use of witch hazel may further prevent blemishes, especially blackheads which result from dried sebum build-up in pores. Witch hazel can be used to ease pain and itching from bug bites and stings, including aiding in the prevention of bites.
